Vanilla Kale Spirulina Smoothie

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?!
