Spirulina Pina Colada

I know I said that my Most Decadent Strawberry Milkshake was going to be my last smoothie of the challenge, but then I realized I hadn’t posted this recipe.

Spirulina Pina Colado Recipe

A month of smoothies is not complete until I feature a recipe with my favourite superfood…spirulina. I’ve posted about it a lot, but spirulina is one of my favourite superhero foods.

  • It’s very high in chlorophyll – which builds healthy blood, promotes better circulation, and helps reduce inflammation – so basically it helps everything…I think of chlorophyll as liquid energy
  • Boosts energy
  • Heals (and detoxes) your body

What Supplements I Take Every Day

It’s like my daily multivitamin and the brand that I adore, is Nutrex (one of the sponsors for this smoothie challenge and a FABULOUS customer-caring company!). I take these with my daily lemon water every morning.

Also, isn’t my glass straw from Strawesome so fun?!

Spirulina Pina Colado Smoothie

Anyway, back to the recipe!

 Spirulina Pina Coloada

  1.  2 cups fresh pineapple
  2. 1 cup coconut milk
  3. 1-2 tsp. spirulina*
  4. stevia, to taste**
  5. 6+ ice cubes
  6. coconut flakes and pineapple slices, to garnish

*Or use Nutrex’s wonderful new superfood blend, the Complete Green (which is what I did).
**I used NuNaturals orange stevia drops for more of a fruity flavour

Blend everything into submission. Adding banana is a great idea too, but I felt like the pineapple was high enough sugar for one meal (for me).

Spirulina Recipe Book and Green Complete Superfood by Nutrex

Love this Spirulina recipe book with some creative ways to try it (Superfood pizza? Or the spinach spirulina pancakes? Whaaaa!)! Also, if you like the idea of taking spirulina but don’t love the taste, here’s an easy way to take it that won’t make you feel like you’re committing tastebud suicide.

To me, nothing says summer more than pineapple!

    Love spirulina, it’s one the few things I notice positive changes when taking

    And not to be a copy cat but Watermelon=happy family Summer memories

    Love this recipe! Pineapple is one of the very few fruits I tolerate (in small quantities). It feels great on the belly and is so refreshing! I take spirulina every single day too, and love the Nutrex brand!:)
