As I've mentioned before, I love making my green smoothies that extra bit more nutritious by adding supplements (and yes, I do have half a shelf full of them!). Holland and Barratt is pretty much my go-to, so last time I headed there I picked up some Spirulina powder and energy boost powder to pop into my breakfasts.
Although the energy boost powder (containing cacao, lucuma, maca and hemp protein) had the subtler taste of the two, the spirulina powder was definitely my favourite. It has really helped me to remain full for four or five hours after eating (or drinking?!) my morning smoothie, and so was perfect fuel during exam season.
Here are a list of some of the potential benefits of spirulina:
- high in protein
- helps maintain eye health
- reduces inflammation
- improves the digestive system
What do you add to your smoothies?
