My Favorite Spirulina Recipes

The superfood spirulina is one of the most nutrient dense foods on earth, it’s a blue-green algae found in freshwater and next to chlorella, is one of the most researched superfoods on earth. It’s a super detoxifier and plant source of protein, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants and the benefits of spirulina are immense. From cancer prevention, to treating HIV/AIDS, candida, and heavy metal detoxifying, more research is proving the benefit of this superfood.

The only downside…it can be kind of funky if you’re not into that whole algae flavor thing! I’m pretty used to it, so I don’t mind adding the powder into my green juices, but I much prefer it seemlessly blended into my smoothies, snacks, and beverages. I’m sharing my three favorite ways to add extra spirulina into my diet. These are delicious, easy to make, and no algae flavor is detectable!

Iced Spirulina Peppermint Tea

This light tea is refreshing on a hot day and provides a nice energy boost.

Makes 1 cup tea

½ tsp. Nutrex Hawaiian spirulina
16 oz of warm water
3-5 drops organic stevia
Cup ice (if desired iced)
Fresh organic mint leaves for garnish 


Pour hot water over two tea bags in a large cup and steep for five minutes. Stir in spirulina powder until blended, then pour over ice. Garnish with mint leaves if desired.

 These raw bars make great energy-boosting snacks.

Makes 12 bars

Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse for 30 seconds. Roll all ingredients into a ball and spread into an 8×8 pan lined with wax or parchment paper. Allow to set for 10-15 minutes, and cut into 12 bars. Keep in airtight container for up to a week.
