The second smoothie recipe from Australian Organic Products introduces the Spirulina Power Smoothie! Made with organic Spirulina powder and delicious coconut water, the odd blue and green colour of Spirulina powder hints the abundance of health benefits of this freshwater plant.
Smoothie #2: The Spirulina Power Smoothie
Spirulina has been researched for many years all over the world and is now one of the most well known Superfoods, along with its cousin Chlorella. Spirulina is a highly nutritious super green that contains essential nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants, chlorophyll, carotenes and minerals including Magnesium, Calcium, Sodium, Potassium and Zinc. A true powerhouse and that’s why we called it the Spirulina Power Smoothie.
To make the Spirulina Power Smoothie you need:
- 1 ripe banana fresh/frozen
- 1 handful frozen blueberries
- 1 handful organic spinach
- 2 leaves of organic kale
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 tbsp. organic Flaxseed oil
- 1 tsp. Spirulina powder
- 1 tbsp. Melrose Organic Apple Juice Concentrate (for extra sweetness)
Get your blender or food processor out and place all ingredients into it and watch all those super nutritious ingredients combine! Blend until smooth and creamy.
