This Sky Blue Spirulina Smoothie is as dreamy and creamy as it looks. It reminds me of a beautiful blue sky with sweeping white clouds. Everything about it from it’s look to it’s taste brings me so much joy and comfort.
This Sky Blue Spirulina Smoothie is made with blue spirulina. Which was given to me by Rawnice.It’s a wonderful way to pack in some extra antioxidants and dress up your smoothies in a gorgeous blue hue! The good thing about spirulina is that it doesn’t have a strong seaweedy taste, so you can get all the health benefits without compromising on that delicious smoothie blend.
For this smoothie, I blended just a 1/2 tsp of the spirulina with soaked cashews and buckwheat, frozen banana, homemade almond milk and….frozen cauliflower! Yep, I’ve done it again adding cauliflower to my smoothies. But as you can see I never pass an opportunity to make something a little extra healthy, and cauliflower has become the perfect addition to my smoothies because it doesn’t have a strong flavour profile and adds a nice thick texture and creaminess to the smoothie (similar to how banana does). Why not get in that extra veg early on in the a.m.!?
I’ve also added a couple scoops of chia pudding, made my mixing chia with creamy homemade almond milk. One of my favourite ways to enjoy smoothies is accompanied by chia pudding, especially that which is blended with creamy homemade almond milk! If you haven’t tried it, trust me on this one: It’s a breakfast game changer. No longer are the days where we must decide whether to have chia pudding or a smoothie bowl for breaky. Two become one with this magical blend. I love the combination of the creamy chia pudding with the smoothie blend.
To get the swirly sky blue look I actually divided my smoothie into two batches. Making the first smoothie batch without blue spirulina, pouring half into the jars, and then mixing the remaining half of smoothie blend with blue spirulina. I’ve also added chia pudding to the top and bottom of the smoothie. Then, to make the harmonious swirls I’ve taken a spoon and stirred the smoothie together a couple times to combine the colours and textures, but not too much so you can still see the different layers.
The results it a dreamy and creamy Sky Blue Spirulina Smoothie that will have you day dreaming of blue skies and sweeping clouds. Mine takes me to a beautiful beach with crystal clear waters. Where would you go? Sky’s the limit. 😉
