Blue Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

March 18, 2020

We have never loved a smoothie bowl more. It is super simple to make and uses the added ingredient of superfood spirulina to make it blue.

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that people have been eating for centuries (the Aztecs allegedly loved it). It got a resurgence in the 90s when astronauts decided to try and grow it in space. And they opted to put in all that effort because a tiny amount of spirulina delivers a huge number of health benefits. Namely, a single tablespoon of the stuff has:

  • 4 grams of complete protein
  • Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Omega-6 fatty acids
  • Vitamins B1, B2, and B3
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Manganese

You will need:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 of ICONIC Vanilla Bean protein drink
  • 1 teaspoon of spirulina

Blend, top with favorite toppings, and enjoy!
