Looking for a quick energy boost in a nice, refreshing beverage? Try this Summer Spirulina Smoothie. Spirulina, a beneficial bacteria used as a nutritional supplement, is a complete protein and an awesome source of energy. Kale, spinach and strawberries all contain immune-boosting antioxidants, bananas are a great potassium source, and flax seed contains omega-3 essential fatty acids and fiber. Drinking this smoothie often will give you a power-packed punch of energy and protection!
We use our Vitamix to prepare this smoothie; the extremely high speed of the machine eliminates the need for cutting up the ingredients. It can easily be prepared in a regular blender as well; just tear your greens into smaller pieces, and cut your strawberries in half and your banana into chunks.
