Emerald Sparkling Smoothie with Spirulina and Kombucha

I just started drinking spirulina and here is my most surprising recipe. The combination of smooth and sparkling textures really is interesting. Plus, it’s a damn healthy drink that looks and tastes real good!

To learn a little more about spirulina (which is a seaweed powder), I suggest you visit wellness mama page. Some of the benefits accorded to spirulina are controversial, mostly around the “B-12 vitamin question”. Spirulina is known to have a great amount of B12 vitamin (an essential nutrient that is lacking in the vegetarian diet and is quite hard to find in natural plant based products), but studies disagree whether those vitamins, in spirulina, are really completed and can be assimilated by the human body… Anyway, spirulina gives plenty of other benefits (taste and colour, to start with) and I certainly won’t stop buying it because of this B12 uncertainty.

So here is today’s easy recipe :

Ingredients :

3/4 cup Mint and Chlorophylle Rise Kombucha

1/2 tsp Spirulina powder

1/2 frozen banana

1/2 fresh pear


Directions :

Put all the ingredients in your blender and blend till smooth. If you don’t have a high-powered blender, cut your banana into pieces before you freeze it.

You could also replace the half frozen banana and half pear combination by only one whole frozen pear.

All the sparkles in this drink comes from the kombucha, which is a fermented tea. Here I took Mint and Chrorophylle flavour, cause it’s already green and it tastes so good!
