Pineapple & Spirulina Smoothie Bowl is loaded with sweet fruit and is thick and creamy. It requires only a handful of ingredients including spirulina, a health boosting algae.
Spirulina is grown in both fresh water and salt water and is often referred as blue-green algae even though it is technically a cyanobacteria. Spirulina is loaded with all sorts of nutrients including protein, calcium, vitamin A and magnesium and has an array of immune boosting benefits.
Spirulina honestly tastes like seawater. I was expecting it to have a very fishy taste (I mean it’s grown in water!) but the taste is not fishy and is fairly subtle. When mixed into foods or flavored liquids, I do not notice it.
Too many times I have made a smoothie packed full of healthy ingredients to only plug my nose and chug it as fast as I can. That’s why I love all the fruit in this recipe. The smoothie is sweet and creamy and the added health benefits of spirulina only changes the color of the smoothie, not the taste!
