Aaron’s Go-To Fresh Spirulina Smoothie is an everyday part of Founder Aaron’s morning routine. He swears it’s his anti-aging cocktail. This combination is full of healthy fats, fiber and protein to keep you satisfied all morning and on the go. The sweet and savory flavor is a crowd pleaser. Juniper (age 2) loves getting her dose of daily greens each morning.
Our fresh spirulina is the star in this recipe. We love the deep green, vibrant color the spirulina gives this powerful smoothie. Chlorophyll, phycocyanin and other antioxidants give spirulina the amazing blue green color. We recommend 1 tablespoon but Aaron says, “Go crazy! I’ve made this smoothie with 6 ounces of spirulina and it’s great!”
So, if you’re looking for a dairy-free, no-sugar-added smoothie to keep you fueled – this smoothie hits the spot. The recipe makes 2 smoothies, one for you and one to share.
1 tablespoon fresh spirulina
1 tablespoon nut butter or a handful of fresh almonds
1 banana, fresh or frozen
½ cup of strawberries or blueberries
Pinch of ginger
Pinch of cinnamon
2 cups non-dairy milk
Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender that will blend up the banana and nuts. We like Ninja and Vitamix blenders.
Peel the ¼ inch chunk of ginger and prepare ingredients
Add all ingredients to the blender with ice and milk of your choice.
Scrape down the sides of the blender, as needed.
Add additional nut milk to achieve desired thickness.
Pour equally into 2 glasses and enjoy!
