Need To Make: Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

For mornings when you want to live a little. 

A thick, almost ice-cream-like base gets topped with fresh juicy fruit, creamy nut butter, crunchy coconut flakes and a hit of bee pollen. Decorate and go wild. 

If you're missing an ingredient, swap it for something else. All you need is a blender.



  • Cashew milk for almond milk
  • Baby kale or romaine for spinach 
  • Frozen mango for pineapple
  • Almond or hazelnut butter for peanut butter
  • Honeydew melon for kiwi
  • Hemp seeds for coconut flakes


    Here’s the low down on spirulina, a blue/green algae and one of the star superfoods in this recipe. P.S. fun fact: Spirulina became well-known after NASA began using it to feed astronauts on space missions (!)

    • Supports the immune system
    • Has anti-inflammatory properties: Inhibits the release of histamine from mast cells in the body. This means less itchiness, runny nose and congestion 
    • Is an excellent plant source of protein – 60—70% of spirulina’s dry weight is made up of digestible amino acids 
    • Contains skin supportive, antioxidants including: beta carotene, phycocyanin and zeaxanthin

        The Recipe: Green Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

        Dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, refined sugar-free

        Serves 2


        • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk 
        • 1 large frozen banana, peeled and chopped
        • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
        • 1 cup baby spinach
        • 1 teaspoon raw coconut oil or MCT oil
        • 3/4 teaspoon spirulina powder
        • 2 ice cubes

        Topping options: 

        • 1 kiwi, scooped into balls using melon baller
        • 1 fresh fig, quartered
        • organic nut butter
        • coconut flakes, unsweetened
        • sliced banana
        • bee pollen 

        Place all smoothie ingredients (except toppings) in a high-speed blender. Blend on high until thick and smooth. Note, to keep this thick, use as little liquid as possible. Stop and scrape down edges with spatula and continue to blend, it will get there! Add more milk if necessary. 

        Transfer to bowl and arrange toppings. Use a fine mesh strainer to dust a little extra spirulina on top. Serve immediately.
