What are the health benefits of Spirulina?

Green spirulina, known for its rich green color, is a type of blue-green algae. It’s a remarkable superfood renowned for its impressive array of health benefits

This nutrient-dense microalgae is a powerhouse of essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B-complex, iron, manganese, potassium, and calcium, providing a comprehensive boost to overall health and vitality.

Notably, spirulina stands out as an exceptional plant-based protein source, boasting all nine essential amino acids vital for optimal bodily functions. Its high protein content makes it a valuable option for vegetarians, vegans, and those seeking to enhance their protein intake.

One of the most outstanding attributes of spirulina is its wealth of antioxidants, which play a crucial role in neutralizing harmful free radicals and reducing oxidative stress. Moreover, spirulina exhibits detoxifying and alkalizing properties, assisting the body in eliminating toxins and heavy metals and balancing the body’s pH levels.

How to make Green Spirulina Smoothie

1.  Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until creamy.

2. If the consistency is too thick, you can add water or more plant-based milk to thin it out. On the other hand, if you want a thicker smoothie, you can use ice or more frozen fruit to thicken it up.

3. Serve as is or top with hemp seeds, chia seeds, granola, and fresh fruit.

Can I use kale in this smoothie?

Yes and no. Kale belongs to the cruciferous vegetable family, alongside broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage, containing a carbohydrate called raffinose that can be challenging to digest, leading to gas and bloating in some people.

What does Spirulina taste like?

When consumed directly, spirulina has a somewhat unappealing taste, somewhat earthy and mildly fishy, resembling much like seaweed. However, when added to smoothies, its flavor becomes undetectable.

What fruit goes well with Spirulina?

  • Pineapple: The tropical sweetness of pineapple can balance the earthiness of spirulina, creating a refreshing and vibrant flavor combination.
  • Mango: The rich sweetness of ripe mangoes enhances the taste of spirulina, making it an excellent addition to smoothies or fruit salads.
  • Banana: The creamy and naturally sweet taste of bananas can help mellow the distinct flavor of spirulina, especially in smoothies.
  • Berries (Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries): These antioxidant-rich fruits add a burst of color and tangy sweetness, complementing spirulina’s nutrient profile.
  • Kiwi: The tangy and slightly sweet taste of kiwi can balance the earthy notes of spirulina, offering a delightful contrast.
  • Orange: The bright citrus flavor of oranges pairs harmoniously with spirulina, creating a zesty and invigorating combination.
  • Papaya: The tropical sweetness and creamy texture of papaya can complement spirulina’s taste in smoothies or fruit bowls.
