I’ve been taking it for a few months now. I like to add it to my post-workout smoothie! You can add it to any smoothie, any way you like, but this is my favorite recipe I’ve created…
10-12 oz of coconut water*
1TB chia seeds (for fiber)
1-2TB of spirulina (start small and then increase over time)
1 Frozen Banana
1/2 cup Frozen Berries
Optional: 1-2 scoops of your favorite protein powder
Throw everything in the blender and blend till smooth! I don’t need to add a sweetener because the banana and berries are usually enough for me. If you find you need a little sweetening, add some stevia or raw honey! Oh, and I have to make a little extra for my 2 kiddos! They have no idea how healthy this is!
*I use coconut water because this is usually my post-workout smoothie and it is loaded with electrolytes. You can use coconut milk, almond milk, raw milk, goat milk, or just plain water.
