Pineapple, banana and spirulina smoothie

I love pineapple but I can't say that I love the taste of spirulina. I know of its benefits so whenever I find a recipe that uses it and don't taste of it, I am a happy camper. Containing 94 trace minerals and a high levels of mixed carotenoids, enzymes and antioxidants it's no surprise spirulina is on the superfood list.

So, what does Spirulina do?
Nourishes and supports your immune system
Can help keep correct sugar level
Helps to enhance energy and vitality, so useful in treating fatigue
Can be used for weight control
Has a full amino-acid supplementation
Can be used during slimming diets to help retain muscular mass.

Handful of cubed pineapple
Handful of frozen berries
1 banana
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1-2 teaspoon of spirulina powder
250-500ml of almond, cashew or coconut milk

Direction  Add all of the ingredients to your blender ad whizz until smoooth. You can add more water or nut milk if needed. We used the Tribest Personal Blender 350.
