My Green smoothie recipe. Do Green, Go Green, Green your way to detox healthy life.
Thanks Greens For Health for the spirulina which I put to good use in the form of a green smoothie. It made the perfect healthy snack option. I am a queen of smoothies, check out my other posts on this.We always hear doctors and health care professionals talk about eating your greens and they are right in advising this. I do firmly believe that good nutrition is important in achieving optimal health.
Spirulina contains more than 15 different vitamins and minerals and comes in a the form of blue/green algae. Some of its uses:
- Possess immune boosting properties,
- Helps with keeping candida at bay by encouraging and supporting the growth of healthy bacterial flora
- Balances blood pressure
- Helps normalise cholesterol levels
- Lowers stroke and cancer risks
I have combined it in a shake for an afternoon pick me up drink to have with my crackers, a healthy snack option
They come in both powder and tablet form. I was sent the tablet form, but both are just as good. I used the NutribulletRX blender which is awesome at blending, it effectively crushed the tablets for this smoothie.
My green smoothie recipe:
- 1 banana
- 1tsp of maple syrup
- 6 spirulina tablets
- A handful of spinach
- 1tbsp of gluten-free oats
Give it all a whizz and put into your cup and drink immediately. Top with whatever fruit or nuts/ seeds you like.
It is that simple
