Mint spirulina smoothie
Even if this smoothie is meant to nourish your gut, I improved its taste to make it feel more like a dessert. The taste will be very pleasant to mint chocolate chip ice cream fans (like me). Mint taste hides the strong spirulina flavor and gives a smoothie some freshness. With spirulina, our body receives plenty of nutrients – protein and minerals like calcium, iron, and magnesium.
Spirulina also promotes good bacterial growth in our gut and has anti-inflammatory properties, which is useful when our body fights with oxidative stress. Enough about spirulina benefits, let’s see the recipe 🙂
|1 cup||plant-based milk (I used almond milk)|
|A handful of||spinach|
|A half of||frozen banana|
|A half of||avocado|
|4-5||fresh mint leaves|
|2 teaspoons||maple syrup or another sweetener|
Put all ingredients into a blender and mix everything until the desired texture. You can add some extra milk to make it more liquid. Bon appetit!
