How to make a green spirulina smoothie for weight loss and glowing skin?

  1. Blend

    Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
    This smoothie is not overly sweet. Its sweetness will depend on the ripeness of banana and kiwi and the type of apple you’ll use. I recommend you to taste and add a teaspoon of maple or agave syrup to achieve the desired sweetness.

Spirulina Smoothie Benefits

Is this spirulina smoothie good for you?

Yes, certainly. This gut-friendly vegan drink will greatly improve your digestion and reduce inflammation in your body. It definitely is the most delicious way to enjoy this protein-packed superfood.

Beyond doubt, this vegan beverage is a real antioxidant powerhouse, considering all foods we’ll use to prepare it. Furthermore, it’s a wonderful way to get a strong dose of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fiber in just one glass.

Also, it may reduce your blood pressure, improve muscle strength and endurance, and help you fight anemia (thanks to its high iron amount).

What does spirulina do to the body?

Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that abounds with essential nutrients. It provides your body with quality protein (1 tablespoon contains 4 grams of complete protein), Vitamin B1, B2, B3, Copper, Iron, and other nutrients you need. Additionally, this superfood is an incredible source of antioxidants that effectively fight free radicals and protect your cells from oxidative damage. Due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-aging effects, spirulina is a fantastic food for healthy glowing skin, too.

Can you put spirulina in smoothies?

Absolutely! Maybe on its own, spirulina doesn’t sound that appealing but it can be a great addition to your daily smoothies and juices. In this way, you won’t even notice its marine flavor yet you’ll reap all benefits mentioned above.

How much spirulina should I put in my smoothie?

I recommend you use 1 teaspoon dry spirulina powder per serving. Thus, its algae flavor won’t overpower the other ingredients you’ll use to make the smoothie.

What do you mix spirulina with?

Creamy spirulina vegan drink with immunity boosting properties.

You can mix spirulina with other fruits and veggies like mango, pineapple, strawberries, oranges, blueberries, raspberries, pear, kale, avocado, cucumbers, hemp seeds, almond or peanut butter, and vegan protein powder of choice. Instead of water, you can use any non-dairy milk like almond milk, cashew milk, oat milk, or coconut milk. Also, you can add your preferred sweetener: maple syrup, agave syrup, date syrup, or stevia to make your smoothie extra sweet.
