Can you put spirulina in a smoothie?
Spirulina has a strong algae flavor that doesn’t suit everyone’s palate. As a result, it’s better to use only 1 teaspoon of spirulina powder in a smoothie to keep the algae flavor light. Also, a great way to cover the flavor of spirulina in this smoothie is to blend it with fruits like banana, mango, or pineapple. How does spirulina taste?
Why is spirulina so expensive?
The truth is… because spirulina is one of the most expensive superfoods there are – many such mixes/blends usually have very little spirulina in them (bulked out by added cheaper ingredients).
What is the difference between Green and blue spirulina?
Green spirulina is purely algae, so it tastes a bit like seaweeds. So if you prefer a light, neutral flavor in your spirulina smoothie, try blue spirulina. It’s an extract and doesn’t have the ‘fishy’ algae flavor that some people don’t like in green spirulina. Blue spirulina has the same nutrient profile.
