Spirulina is a health-enhancing algae, composed of 62% complete protein, which means that each spoonful of powder gives you a whole four grams of complete protein, so you’ll get all the essential amino acids that the body can’t produce and can sometimes be lacking in an unbalanced plant diet. As well as all the amazing protein each spoon of Spirulina also gives you an incredible dose of B vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin E, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium, essential fatty acids and antioxidants. It’s known to cleanse the liver, lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar, reduce inflammation, boost the immune system and even discourage allergies! So get drinking, it will do wonders for you mind and body, making you beautiful inside and out.
Makes one glass
– 1 ripe banana
– 1 cup of frozen blueberries (I buy them fresh then freeze them)
– 1 cup of spinach
– 1 cup of kale
– 3/4 of a cup of water/almond milk/coconut water
– 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
– 1 teaspoon of hemp protein powder
– 1 teaspoon of spirulina
Optional: 2 medjool dates (this sweetens it)
Simply place everything together in the blender, peel the banana and pit the dates first though! Then blend for a minute or so until smooth. I like my smoothies thick so that I can eat them with a spoon, so you may want to add more water/almond milk/coconut water if you like it runnier. Then sip, love and enjoy!
