To tell you the truth, I am not big on putting anything green nor algae derivative in any of my smoothies, simply because I really do not appreciate sitting down to a bowl of seaweed soup disguised as a daisy…it never works, I have tried, for twenty odd years to find a solution for this. My conclusive solution is to take all greens and algae powders separate from all foods whatsoever, and with a small amount of water and simply skull it…and get it over and done with. However, there are some blue spirulina powder mixes out there these days, with enough other superfoods in them, to make this particular smoothie ‘a okay’. Spirulina is kind of a royal in the superfood kingdom. Spirulina is super rich in phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, and when eaten regularly it will enhance endurance and effectively supplement an otherwise lacking in nutrients type of diet. Essentially, spirulina is nature’s very own ‘multivitamin’.
- 4 frozen medium sized bananas
- 1 1/4 coconut quench (or almond milk)
- 2 tsp of blue spirulina superfood blend
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 1-2 tsp white chia seeds
- 1 tbsp dried white mulberries
- 1 tbsp coconut flakes
- 1 tbsp frozen or fresh raspberries
- Place all the ingredients for the whip in a blender and blend until smooth and a flower shapes on top of the whip inside the blender.
- Organise the ingredients for the topping and set aside.
- When the whip is finished, place the it into a bowl and quickly decorate with the toppings.
- Eat as soon as possible to ensure the texture is frozen and firm whilst eating.
- If needed some more time to organise, the blender with the whip in it can be placed in the freezer for a couple of minutes.
