Organic Spirulina Powder

About

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that was a food source for the Aztecs and other Mesoamericans until the 16th century. Spirulina powder is a complete protein containing all essential amino acids, with about 60% total protein. It is also rich in B vitamins and various health-promoting minerals. Due to these properties and its high iron content, spirulina is often supplemented in vegetarian and vegan diets.

Uses

Include 1/2-2 teaspoons of spirulina each day in smoothies, juices, porridge, granola or simply mixed through your choice of yoghurt. With its distinctly bitter scent and taste, spirulina adds an earthy, seaweed-like flavour to food. If this isn’t your preference, you can easily disguise its flavour among other fruits and vegetables. This Mint Choc Chip Smoothie Bowl is a good example of including spirulina in a recipe without significantly changing its flavour profile. It is a deliciously thick and creamy mint smoothie bowl with crunchy cacao nibs that makes the perfect breakfast or sweet treat with some hidden greens to put that extra spring in your step. Spirulina can also be included in recipes for energy bars, muffins and bliss balls, like these Tropical Super Greens Energy Bites, a great snack packed with nutrients for the perfect pick-me-up.
