Tropical Spirulina Smoothie

Relax with a Tropical Spirulina Smoothie

I’ve been experimenting with a lot of different powders and supplements to help energize me and manage my anxiety. The Spirulina in this Tropical Spirulina Smoothie is a type of algae, like seaweed, and superfood that can help transport excess heavy metals out of the body, which can improve brain and nervous system health. There’s also nothing like a tropical beverage reminiscent of a day at the beach to calm your nerves as well! 🏝

I became interested in trying Spirulina when one of the doctors who spoke at the 2020 Food Revolution Summit mentioned how toxic heavy metals could contribute to anxiety and other mental disorders. The North American Journal of Medical Sciences cites similar research in this study – the role of lead and cadmium in psychiatry. The ground flax in this recipe is abundant in Omega-3 fatty acids which also contribute to good mental health, according to this article – “Effects of Omega-3 Fatty Acids on Mental Health“.

Unfortunately, since Spirulina is a sea weed, it can taste quite funky if you don’t mix it with the right ingredients! You won’t taste the Spirulina and spinach in this Tropical Spirulina Smoothie at all! Throw a drink umbrella in it, lay back, and take a moment to relax and be mindful of the positive impact a healthy Tropical Spirulina Smoothie 🍍 can have on your health!

  • 2 tbsp Coconut flakes optional

Notes

I highly recommend your banana and/or other fruit in this smoothie is frozen. If none of the fruit is frozen, you can add ice. I prefer the texture of a frozen banana blended in my smoothies! I usually have some bananas that I peeled and threw in a bag to freeze when they were super ripe and about to go bad.
Coconut flakes don’t ground up very well in smoothies, so mix it in or top it off if you don’t mind this fact.
