How to use it?

Recommended daily serving: 

1-2 teaspoons

You would need to consume only two tablespoons of spirulina as a protein substitute for a meal. Mix 1-2 teaspoons of this savoury powder into smoothies and drinks or use it in cooking. If you don't enjoy the taste of the blue-green algae, the taste can be disguised by combining it with fruit -- such as pineapple and banana -- and vegetable juice in a blender and blending until smooth. Alternatively, powdered spirulina can be sprinkled onto or mixed into foods. Or even to make your own Spirulina Pesto!

Dr. Oz recommends combining 1 teaspoon spirulina powder with 350 ml lime juice and freezing the mixture in ice cube trays for a healthy boost. According to Dr. Oz, spirulina and lime enhance energy performance because they unlock sugar from our cells and, when frozen, the cold from the ice boosts metabolic energy while giving our bodies a “wake-up call.” 

Breakfast Smoothie

Blend 1 tablespoon spirulina powder into 2 cups of natural, unsweetened fruit juice. Add a banana and a few cubes of ice for a healthful breakfast smoothie.
