It’s snowing outside and all I want is a smoothie. Is that wrong?
The other day I found out that my favorite vitamin store was going out of business and everything was 30 – 50% off. So of course I stocked up on Guyaki Yerba Mate, Ashwaghanda to help me sleep and Spirulina. What is Spirulina you might ask? It’s a blue-green algae that’s rich in protein, vitamins and antioxidants. You might have seen “blue magic” type drinks at your favorite health cafe and they get that color from the Spirulina.
Ever since I started taking Spirulina on a regular basis, I feel so much better! And if you’re not convinced, here’s a guide to some more health benefits of this magical powder!
I scored at the store and found a choco-mint flavored spirulina powder and instantly thought – SMOOTHIE. I don’t think you could ever have enough smoothie ideas and it’s the best on the go breakfast. So I now present you another delicious smoothie recipe:
Britt’s Mint Chocolate Spirulina Smoothie
2 frozen bananas
1 cup spinach
1 cup honey greek yogurt
2 tbsp choco-mint spirulina powder
1 cup coconut milk
BLEND AWAY AND BAM! There you have it! Having frozen bananas on deck helps make the smoothie so much creamier. If you don’t have frozen bananas you can use fresh ones, just add ice! You also get this beautiful green color that’s almost too pretty to drink!
Enjoy and be well 🙂
