Detox spirulina smoothie
Have you tried spirulina before? Spirulina is a natural blue-green microalgae powder that is incredibly high in protein. If you have never tried it this is the perfect recipe. This detox spirulina smoothie is super refreshing and a great way to start the day.
Spirulina not only has 8 essential and 10 non-essential amino acids, as well as high levels of beta-carotene, vitamin B12, iron, calcium, phosphorus but it is also a great source of antioxidants, and B-vitamins.
Convince yet? Spirulina has a great array of powerful nutrient properties. I am glad I invested in this superfood.
Because spirulina has a very strong flavor you have to find a way to masks its flavor a bit. In this detox spirulina smoothie I used lemon juice which does just that plus it gives it the smoothie a delicious refreshing taste.
My kids drank it so I anticipate you will like it too.
You can also use spirulina in an array of recipes such as pancake and waffle batter, energy bites, bars, ice cream etc I am going to try to incorporate more recipe in the blog so that you can take advantage of this awesome ingredient.
