Spirulina smoothie with mango and grassfed whey

This spirulina smoothie is a trick I have for getting back on track after a day of over-indulging. Today, we are craving something extra healthy since we’ve just indulged to the max with holiday treats. Cookies, cakes, salty ham, and all the other rich foods we’ve been eating this week have taken their toll!

Why spirulina?

Smoothies are not something I make a lot, but they really do help get in nutrients and de-bloating agents when you would otherwise just stay uncomfortable. I don’t normally go for trends like detoxing, but there is nothing wrong with adding nutrients when you feel blah. I love spirulina for its immune boosting and anti-inflammatory properties. It also has tons of B vitamins and some protein. Read more about it here.

What else is in this?

This smoothie has full fat Bulgarian yogurt for probiotics, but any full-fat, plain yogurt will do. Additionally, there is also grass-fed vanilla protein powder, bananas, and mangos (though any other frozen fruit will do if you can’t get your hands on mangos). And the ninja did not disappoint … this blended in about 30 seconds!

Any high-speed blender will work for this, or even a handheld immersion blender in a pinch.

If you’d like, you can also switch out the flavors of protein, or drop the protein altogether and add flavorless collagen instead. Additionally, the coconut milk can even be switched out for almond, oat or flax milk. Smoothies are very versatile and can be mixed and matched to your liking. However, in this one, the spirulina is really the star of this show.
