Ever since ‘Unicorn Food’ became cool, I’ve admired how the different colors in the food were made. Beet for pink, matcha for green, and blue algae for blue. Yes, I said blue algae. You know, that thing you learn about in 3rd grade science class…! I bet you didn’t know that organic blue-green algae is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet! When I learned this, it was a no-brainer. I needed algae in my life, and smoothie bowls would be the perfect place to experiment.
What You Will Need:
1.5C Unsweetened Coconut Milk
1/2 Frozen Banana
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I used Vanilla Aloha– Code NOBREAD20 gets you a discount!)
1.5 tsp Blue Spirulina (I used Blue Majik)
1T Chia or Flax Seeds
1T Coconut Oil
Optional: up to 1T Bulletproof Brain Octane.
Steamed then frozen cauliflower.
What You Will Do:
Add all items to a blender, starting with your nut milk.
Blend on high for 1 minute or until totally combined.
Pour into a bowl and add your toppings!
I added Purely Elizabeth granola, coconut butter, and blueberries!
The more Blue Majik you add, the more blue your smoothie bowl becomes! I settled on using a teaspoon and a half, and the taste of the spirulina wasn’t overpowering. I also only used a half banana, and you can totally use a full banana to add more creaminess and banana flavor. I didn’t add any veggies to this smoothie, but next time I plan to add 1C frozen cauliflower for added nutrients and texture!
