I’m surrendering to the trend. I’m making a smoothie bowl…. and I’m not mad about it. This one is super simple and really good. Using spirulina makes me feel like I’m some sort of health god… but I’m not gonna lie it’s weird by itself. It needs some help. So my advice for using algae in your smoothie is to balance it out with really bright flavors like orange or pineapple. Try this one. It’s extra delicious.
You will need:
Two frozen bananas
One table spoon spirulina powder
A hand full of berries
Blend and garnish with whatever’s left over (I used banana, berries, and shredded coconut)
