We are gradually converting into being a big fan of spirulina – a super concentrated source of plant-based proteins and contains 3x the protein than meat, 50x more iron than spinach and all of this while being tasteless in your smoothie or juice! Bonus: renders a natural green colour to your drinks/food without having to add kale or spinach or greens.
Ever since @simpligoodsg have gifted us these spirulina pods (100% raw, fresh and frozen) – each pod containing 20g protein, these have become a regular addition to our smoothies and shakes. If you eat spirulina as is, some of you may not like the taste (seaweed-ish flavor) but when it blends with water or smoothie or any food, it is neutral in taste.
What experiments you can do in your kitchen with these? Any! Yes, any. The most common ones are – smoothie, shake, juice, breakfast bowl, muffins, chocolates etc.
We created this spirulina pina colada smoothie – our most fav drink on a sunny day and made it nutrient rich without actually changing any taste! Check out our recipe in the link in bio.
