I’m always looking for ways to eat my beloved spirulina, and while I have some creative ideas brewing in my brain, I always revert back to spirulina smoothies.
This one I made a few days ago and it is my newest smoothie obsession. Its almost like one of those creamy Starbuck frappas – but of course, I made it healthy and low sugar. In other words, I will be making this a lot. This will make 1 large serving or 2 small servings.
Creamy Strawberry Spirulina Shake
- 2 TB heavy cream
- 1/4 c. yogurt, full fat
- 8 drops vanilla stevia
- 2 packs Truvia
- 1/2 c. green tea
- 2/3 c. almond milk, unsweetened
- 2 tsp. spirulina
- 1/2-3/4c. strawberries, organic
- 8 ice cubes
Blend until smooth and creamy. And yes, those fats in there are GOOD FOR YOU and they are NOT FATTENING. Fit tip: Just keep away from carbs for 2-3 hours if you have a high fat meal and those fats will keep you slim, not make you fat! I’ve eaten more fat than I ever have in my life and I’m losing weight, not gaining. Don’t be afraid of a little fat!
Thanks to Maine Drinking Straws for letting me try their stainless steel straws. I love the idea of reusable straws for my smoothies and I am so glad they want to be a part of the smoothie challenge! I’m LOVING them (and the fact they are SO easy to clean) and you will be seeing much more of these straws in my smoothie pics. Goodbye plastic! If you’re in my Colourful Smoothie Challenge, then you have a chance to win some! Double yay!
Also, thanks to my niece for modelling for me. She thought we should both do green mustaches for a photo together – you can check it out here on my Instagram.
Come on peeps! By now you know you should be eating spirulina! So are you? (wink) Have you tried using a REUSABLE straw?
