- Spirulina has a particularly distinctive flavor. I added a considerably small amount of this smoothie, so you will presumably not taste it, but if you re not used to spirulina, you should start with half a teaspoon and increase gradually. This will affect the color of your smoothie.
- I froze wild blueberries that I collected myself. I used store-bought frozen blueberries, so the smoothie color was slightly different.
Spirulina used to be used for nutritional purposes by various cultures worldwide, especially in China, Japan, and Korea. However, it was also an important food resource for the Aztecs, as Cort s and the Spanish Conquistadors observed during their visit to Lake Texcoco in 1519. Called Tecuitlatl by the Aztecs, meaning ‘topping stones,’ it was often dried into cakes to be sold at markets and added to food items.

How to use spirulina
Spirulina is said to be a “fishy” flavor, that’s why the capsule form of the herb is so widely used. The powder can be mixed with a weekly or even daily smoothie to acquire all the wonderful health benefits of spirulina without the fishy taste.
Spirulina smoothie recipe
-1 teaspoon spirulina
-1 frozen banana
-1 cup spinach
-½ cucumber, sliced
-¾-1 cup coconut milk, full fat
-1 teaspoon chia seeds
Blend all ingredients until smooth, resulting in a uniform light green consistency with a smoothie thickness. If the smoothie is too thick, add a few teaspoons more coconut milk and mix it at low for 5 seconds. If the smoothie is too watery, add a few ice cubes or frozen bananas to thicken and perk it up. Garnish the fruit with honey, butter, and other toppings you think would do well. Enjoy!
