Spirulina smoothie is perfect for you if you need a quick nutrient packed breakfast or snack. The vitamins in spirulina will not only keep you full and satisfied for longer, but you are getting pure nutrition with easily digestible proteins.

Why use Spirulina in your Smoothie?

Well, spirulina is considered a superfood because of its nutrient dense content.

Adding just a teaspoon to your blender can do wonders to your smoothie. Not only making it a superfood smoothie, but also upping the protein content.

Use it for Protein

Spirulina’s protein content is 22% in comparison to beef. Using a little bit of spirulina as a protein supplement has distinct advantages over other forms.

Spirulina is unique because it contains all of the essential amino acids which are better described as the building blocks of protein.

Now the quality of protein is largey dependent upon the amounts of amino acids it contains. Looking closer you will see that spirulina is known as a “complete protein” due to the fact that is not only contains all of the essential amino acids, but 11 other in addition to the essential ones.

This means that we can get the necessary protein intake without subjecting out digestive system to a lot of hard work. (based on the fact that poor quality protein does not have the adequate amino acids)

Use it for Vitamins

Just a little bit of spirulin contains a whole host of vitamins – that’s why it’s called a superfood. Below is a list of a few that it contains.

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B complex
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitmin K
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin C
