I absolutely love the dark rich flavour of spirulina – it’s one of my favourite super green powders. Try this fabulous invigorating drink and you’ll be hooked. I use a base of green tea which is known for its fat burning properties. This drink is packed with antioxidants including catechins making this a wonderful anti-aging drink

Whats good about it?
Phocyanin is the main active compound in spirulina. It has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Spirulina may have some anti-cancer properties, especially against a type of precancerous lesion called OSMF (oral submucous fibrosis). It may also help with certain allergies. Spirulina supplements have been shown to be very effective against allergic rhinitis, helping to reduce various symptoms.
- Simply place all the ingredients in a blender or nutribullet and process until smooth and creamy.
Did you Know?
Instead of spirulina you could add chlorella powder or a supergreens mixed blend. Matcha green tea powder is also delicious and a great fat burner
