Summer Spirulina Smoothie Recipe

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 ir?t=vegezen 20&l=as2&o=1&a=B000RRJSMMto 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.
