Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

For those of you who’ve been following my journey on Facebook, I recently quit my almost two year job to further pursue my career in social media management for small businesses. It’s already been a weird two weeks since I’ve left. Going from sitting at a desk for 8 hours of the day only to come home exhausted, not wanting to cook and using the weekends to get chores done is drastically different from waking up on your own time, setting your own hours, living in yoga pants, having time to cook every meal, and working from home. I love it.

So what does this have to do with a smoothie bowl?

This blog has been pretty silent for the past six months because of how busy work kept me. Now that I have more time and freedom, I hope to post more on here. Hence = smoothie bowl.

I recently heard about Spirulina, a little green superfood that does wonders for the body. It’s high in nutrients, has anti-cancer properties, reduces blood pressure, keeps you full and has been declared “best food of the future” by the World Health Organization. I found this amazing smoothie recipe on The Glowing Fridge using Spirulina and had to give it a taste! I purchased my Spirulina from here.

I didn’t change anything to Shannon’s recipe other than using raw banana instead of frozen banana (since I couldn’t find any frozen bananas!) I kept the frozen pineapple because it makes the smoothie extra cold. And I love topping it with frozen raspberries because they give such a beautiful color and taste. Lastly, I picked some flowers from my backyard and added a tiny garnish for aesthetic, which makes me very happy!

Visit The Glowing Fridge for the recipe. It’s so simple and tasty! Enjoy, friends!

    Aren’t the flowers you’ve put on as a garnish toxic?
