Green Spirulina Smoothie Bowl
This green spirulina smoothie bowl is a simple smoothie transformed into a nutritious breakfast or snack.
The secret is to use less liquid to blend it, making it so thick and creamy that can be eaten with a spoon.
Smoothies, when balanced properly can be the perfect meal. Feel free to leave any of these ingredients out and replace them with your favorite ones. Just an advice: use fruits in moderation and add vegetables and healthy fats in order to balance out the sugar content.
Have you ever tried spirulina? If you haven’t heard of spirulina before, it’s an algae that is 60-70% protein, high in minerals, vitamins, amino acids, iron, chlorophyll, and magnesium. The recommended serving ranges from 1-2 teaspoons. I’m not going to lie, it doesn’t taste great but, trust me, when mixed with your favorite smoothie it tastes wonderful. I promise, it won’t taste like dirty water! :)
Top this green spirulina smoothie bowl with all sorts of food to add texture and flavor. The options are pretty endless: shredded coconut, cacao nibs, fresh or frozen berries,goji berries, figs, sliced banana, bee pollen, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, granola, etc.
