Blue Spirulina Summer Smoothie
Doesn’t this smoothie bowl just make you want to pack your bags and head for a tropical island?
This simple smoothie recipe is perfect for summer and is a great vegan smoothie bowl made mostly from banana and coconut.
We are using blue spirulina which is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants; it boosts the immune system, increases energy, helps regulate metabolism, and assists with digestion. Although spirulina isn’t high in protein, it’s a complete protein and it contains more amino acids per ounce than any other food on the planet.
- 1 cup frozen bananas
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 coconut yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp blue spirulina
- Add all your ingredients into a high speed blender.
- Blend for 1-2 minutes or until the mixture becomes thicker.
- Remove the smoothie from the blender and transfer to your coconut bowls or coconut cups.
- You can use whatever toppings you want. Some ideas are fresh berries, kiwi fruit, dragon fruit, cubed pineapple, shredded coconut, granola/nuts, hemp seeds.
You can make all kinds of things with superfood powders besides smoothies and smoothie bowls. I’ve also seen chia puddings, crepes, cakes and pancakes.
