Super food smoothies- Banana Spirulina smoothie

Dear Readers,


2013 is my year for fitness, I really let myself go last year buckling under stress and work pressure. I promised myself this year will be different, on my path to healthy eating I have discovered Spirulina. This monster vomit green smoothie is Spirulina, banana smoothie. I think the colour green makes it a lot more fun to drink, it will be a great hit with kids am sure. 


Spirulina is an algae comprising of 60% protein.  It also contains vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (nicotinamide), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folic acid), vitamin Cvitamin Dvitamin A and vitamin E. It is also a source of potassiumcalciumchromium,copperironmagnesiummanganesephosphorusseleniumsodium and zinc. It has been in dietary use since the age of Aztecs and is again fast becoming a popular dietary supplement. I purchase it online in the form of a powder which makes it really easy to use in smoothies and juices. If you live in Australia you can visit  Cheap Super Foods for more information. If like me you are looking for simple ways to improve your health and well being, you should give this a go.

  3. If it is fitness you aim for this year, then Spirulina is just the right supplement, Srishti! It has 300% more protein than fish and comes with no cholesterol. Who wouldn't get lured? :D And one thing more, aside from Spirulina, what other protein source can you mix with other ingredients and still taste good as smoothie, pancake, and even ice cream? Probably not very many.
