If you haven’t tried adding spirulina to your morning smoothies yet, you should board the train immediately! This superfood is incredibly high in protein, iron, and calcium. Its a great add in to Kenya’s smoothies since he is a vegetarian and I am always trying to get enough of these important nutrients into his body. 

Spirulina is an algae, and even the powdered stuff carries a hint of that flavor with it. So I like to add a few extra dates and a splash of vanilla to make this powerhouse smoothie easier to drink. 

Vanilla Kale Spirulina Smoothie is definitely staying in our regular Smoothie Project rotation because it gives such a nice boost to begin our day. 

Have you tried spirulina yet? What do you think about it?!
