SPIRULINA - my absolute favorite ingredient. I have always loved adding a chlorophyll rich supplement to my diet, whether it’s lots of leafy greens, algae, or pure chlorophyll drops.
I havent had spirulina in a minute, so I added it to my last Thrive order since it’s nutrient packed and great for hormonal breakouts (more on that in another post).
I opted for the powder, which was a total accident, a good accident however because you get more nutrition out of the powder than the tablets anyways.
I have a bit of a fear of green powders because some of them were pretty damn awful years back - spirulina however, is so mild flavored, and it’s pretty much flavorless once it’s paired with anything else.
Thank god for Minimalists Baker -life her Sprulina Smoothie Recipe - it is BOMB! I edited it a bit and added a tropical twist with Pineapple + Mango.
Tropical Spirulina Smoothie

1 frozen banana (chopped up for ease)
1 c coconut milk (then I thinned it a bit with water)
