- 1 Tsp Spirulina (dark green algae)
Mix them up in a blender and you have a delicious, nutritious smoothie to help jump start your day!
In addition to the above mentioned nutrients these shakes are very high in antioxidants which have been implicated in anti-aging strategies. The dietary fibre and yogurt bacteria (lactobacillus) will help aid your digestive system. Flax is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids (good fats). Spirulina boosts energy by unlocking sugar from the cells.
Note: this is NOT a meal replacement – just a fantastic nutritious drink!
