This fun and mineral boosting smoothie recipe will give you energy and you’ll love the sweet-tart flavor of the cherries.  

What is spirulina and what are the benefits?  

Have you tried spirulina?  It’s an iron rich, freshwater blue green algae packed with nutrients from the sea. Spirulina is crowned a superfood because it has so many health boosting nutrients.

Spirulina is chock full of highly absorbable vitamins and minerals. It can even replace a multivitamin! I love this smoothie because it tastes delicious and I don’t have to take extra multivitamin pills when I drink it.

Make sure your spirulina is organic and tested for heavy metals.

According to NY Times bestselling author Anthony William, spirulina:

  • “Helps restore brain tissue and rebuilds the central nervous system
  • Helps stabilize glucose levels in the blood
  • Provides critical micronutrients for the thyroid and to bolster the endocrine system.

Ten grams of spirulina can supply up to 70% of the minimum daily requirements for iron”

Living a well rounded life starts with you

This smoothie also calls for sea moss gel. I discovered sea moss this year when I was looking for a natural and bio available iron source.

Sea moss gel contains more iron than liver or a steak! I have found adding half a lime and lime juice to your sea moss water really improves the flavor.

  • 1 scoop (1 tablespoon) Vimergy Spirulina 
  • 1 ripe organic frozen or fresh banana 
  • ½ cup organic frozen cherries
  • 1 tb. sea moss gel (prepare gel according to package instructions)
  • 1 ½ cups organic tart cherry juice 
How to Make the Spirulina Smoothie: 

This spirulina smoothie is easy to make when you’re on the go in the morning. You can pre measure the liquid, sea moss, and spirulina and throw them in a container in the fridge the night before to save time.

If you live in a cold climate and don’t like cold smoothies in winter (I feel you on this one! Our Vermont winters are cold.), feel free to use fresh not frozen fruit to warm up the smoothie.

Spirulina Smoothie

Blend all ingredients in a blender or Vitamix.  Pour into tall glasses and enjoy fresh.

Is more spirulina better?

When I was trying to get my iron levels up I took 5 tablespoons of spirulina a day. This was a lot! Spirulina begins to taste very “green” when you increase the amount, so I would recommend sticking to one tablespoon especially if you’re a spirulina newbie.
