I love to put the powered form of it in my smoothies. You can add so many different ingredients. I like to but in raspberries, blueberries, different seeds flax, pumkin, sunflower, chia, and sesame seeds. Two brazil nuts – I‘ll put on a blog on these fabulous nuts later, and some other nuts too and depending on what’s in the fridge I’ll have half a carrot and half an apple and pear and some advocado. I also love banana and if I’m feeling in need of some more sweetness I sprinkle in some xylitol (another thing I do a blog on shortly). I of course top it all up with my Koko milk (see previous blog).

Arhhh Dad there’s something green in the fridge said my partner’s daughter. I sniggered to myself. It took me some courage to try this too. I have know idea why? It delicious.


I love a spirulina smoothie for breakfast

What is spirulina?

Rather than reinvent the wheel I have copied this from one of the many many articles on the web about this incredible food.

Spirulina is one of the oldest life forms on Earth. In fact, this blue-green microalgae is partly responsible for producing the oxygen in the planet's atmosphere that billions of years ago allowed the planet's originating life forms to develop. Spirulina is the world's first superfood, and one of the most nutrient-rich foods on Earth.

Spirulina has between 55 and 70% protein (more than beef, chicken, and soybeans), 9 essential and 10 non-essential amino acids, as well as high levels of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), beta-carotene, linoleic acid, arachidonic acid, vitamin B12, iron, calcium, phosphorus, nucleic acids RNA & DNA, chlorophyll, and phycocyanin, a pigment-protein complex that is found only in blue-green algae.

What Are the Benefits of Spirulina?

Spirulina provides a wide range of health benefits almost immediately upon ingestion. It provides a near-instantaneous boost to one's energy, while helping to improve endurance and reduce fatigue. It helps improve the immune system, and provides exceptional support for the heart, liver, and kidneys. Spirulina is also a natural detoxifier, oxygenating the blood, and helping cleanse the body of toxins and other impurities that may be causing illnesses or other health complications.

Spirulina is also a natural appetite suppressant, and it helps to improve the body's digestive system. It also has very powerful antioxidant properties and it helps to balance the body's pH, thereby reducing inflammation throughout the body in a safe and chemical-free way.

Spirulina Side Effects

Spirulina is a safe and effective superfood that is highly digestible, with no side effects. It does, however, contain iodine, so those allergic or sensitive to iodine should avoid taking it.
