To be honest with relocating and waiting to move into my new space, I have not been cooking at home as much as of late. So I thought I’d share something I still whip up often that is quick and nutritious…my morning smoothie. Not only is it delicious but the vibrant blue-purple color adds to its magic. The color is due to an ingredient called Blue Majik, a powdered superfood extract from the microalgae Spirulina. This type of algae contains more protein than any other organism and its amino acid profile is almost entirely the same as that of the human body which is why its consumption is so beneficial to our health. It also acts as a COX-2 inhibitor, a natural pain reliever for cramps, muscle soreness, and joint pain, making it the perfect drink after my early morning Ashtanga practice.
- 1 cup (8 oz) Silk almond milk (unsweetened, vanilla flavor)
- 1 banana
- 2 small handfuls of blueberries
- 1 scoop (1/4 teaspoon) Blue Majik powder
- Place all in a blender on high until blended.
- Enjoy immediately!
*If you prefer a thicker smoothie simply use frozen fruit.
