Spirulina Green Smoothies

Apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Here's Zali 5 years ago sipping on her Shrek and Fiona green juice as she was a big fan when that movie came out.

So what is Spirulina?

This blue-green, absurdly healthy but often overlooked or misunderstood; Spirulina is renowned for its intense flavor and even more powerful nutrition profile! It grows in our version of that magical moon, Hawaii, along with other exotic locations around the globe. 

What are the benefits of Spirulina? 

Spirulina is a natural and miracle micro “algae” (cyanbacteria) powder that is incredibly high in protein (60-70%) helps you stay focused and nourished as it's got a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins and amino acids which quickly absorbs into our bodies.

I'm a huge fan of Spirulina as it contains natural iron (a huge bonus since I'm all plant based these days) that my body loves! It supports our brain function and energy metabolism without any tummy troubles.
