Spirulina is a nutrient dense superfood alga that everyone can benefit from. It is packed with protein, loaded with vitamin minerals, and offers impressive health benefits. The problem is that not many people eat spirulina because it doesn’t exactly taste great. After all, it is algae! I’ve created this list to help people add more spirulina to their diet. If you have any great spirulina recipes, please share!
1. Make Spirulina Smoothies
Spirulina can be easily added to your favorite green smoothies and juices. Simply make a smoothie as you normally would- fruit, almond milk, veggies, and ice- and then add a spoonful of spirulina! Give it a quick blend and you will have a nutrient dense, superfood, green smoothie. You can also add a bit of spirulina to your fresh pressed juices. Simply add a pinch of spirulina.
2. Add Spirulina to Baked Goods
A pinch of spirulina goes along way when it comes to increasing nutrient density. Add spirulina to muffins, cakes, pancakes, breads, and more! Your baked good may turn slightly green, but that just means its more nutrient dense and more fun! Imagine sending your kiddos to school with green muffins! They would love it!
3. Make Spirulina Sauces
Last but not least, you can stir spirulina into tomato sauces, alfredo sauces, pesto sauces, or any other sauce you can think of. You can also add it to salad dressings, or simply sprinkle it on top of your salad. Speaking of sprinkling, you should try sprinkling spirulina on buttered popcorn- it’s delicious!
There you have it! Spirulina is an easy way to add nutrients and pop of green color to nearly any dish. If you would like to learn more spirulina recipes, try searching for spirulina recipes on Pinterest!
