Spirulina Smoothie Bowl3

Spirulina Smoothie Bowl Recipe.

We’ve been talking about adding spirulina in to our daily merrymaker-ness (that’s definitely a made up word) for a while now. Ever since someone said to us: “oh, you girls should try spirulina! It’s like liquid sunshine!” we have been meaning to give the green powder a whirl! We LOVE the sound of liquid sunshine and we’re huge fans of getting more nutrients and vitamins in to our bodies at every single meal.

Spirulina has over 100 nutrients… but the most important thing is that they’re easily digested and absorbed by our bodies! Spirulina is already getting ticks from us! But let’s make a list because lists are ALWAYS more fun…

Why should I eat/drink spirulina?

  • Spirulina has anti-ageing properties! Thanks to the high amounts of beta-carotene (in fact… 20 times MORE than carrots! Move over carrots!).
  • It’s anti-inflammatory! Well… you had us at anti-inflammatory!
  • Spirulina is full of chlorophyll which helps detox the body of toxins and heavy metals.
  • Spirulina will boost your immunity! Boom! LOVE THIS! 
  • Spirulina is a great source of iron! It’s going to give you energy that lasts!  
  • Believe it or not (no, believe it, it’s true)  spirulina has 5 times more protein than eggs.
  • Our favourite is that spirulina has 10 times more calcium than milk! So the next person who asks us where we get our calcium from when we eat paleo… we’ll be giving them some spirulina to try!

The list seriously goes on… we could have mentioned that it’s also high in Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin B, C, D, A and E! PLUS it’s a a source of potassium, chromium, copper, magnesium,  manganese, phosphorus, selenium, sodium and zinc. Phoar! The more we read about it, the more we’re like ‘um, spirulina… where have you been all our lives?!’

This week, we’re down the coast with our parents taking some time to recharge and reconnect with the earth’s magic! While picking up our groceries, we threw some Nature’s Way Organic Super Spirulina into the trolley. We couldn’t think of anything better than to whiz up this Spirulina Smoothie Bowl for everyone to get their daily dose of liquid sunshine!

It even got Dad’s tick of approval… which means that this Spirulina Smoothie Bowl is totally delish!

Always merrymaking,

  3. I have suffered from low iron levels for a long time. Looking forward to trying Spirulina Powder as an option to boost my energy levels.
    Thanks for sharing.

    =)

  4. I had no idea what Spirulina was, let alone what to do with it. Can’t wait to try this recipe!

  5. Can’t believe how yummo this recipe looks! I’ve always loved what spirulina can do for your body, but when I drink it sometimes it gives me the runs – sorry to share. But I’ve started to use it in smoothie bowls and for whatever reason, it goes down a treat. Can’t wait to try this! 🙂 People with sensitive tummys should try it in a bowl too.

    We were the same Danielle! We know we should be eating/drinking it but had never read about it or tested it! When we read the back of our Super Spirulina we got so excited about tall the benefits! Hope you like it! 🙂

  10. I have to say this is pretty great, but because I”m on the paleo diet I got rid of the spirulina powder (as it’s clearly a processed food, and I used leftover cauliflower rice instead. So yummy and minty fresh!

  19. This is sooooo delicious, I couldn’t believe how sweet & dessert-like it turned out. I freeze my coconut milk in ice cube trays so when I blended this up it turned out like a creamy gelati. I only added chia & coconut flakes but it would have been great even without them. Thanks guys for another awesome recipe.
