Spirulina Superfood Smoothie is made with fresh and simple ingredients for a balanced meal that can help improve digestion and reduce inflammation. Toss the ingredients in the blender for a healthy breakfast or easy snack that can be taken on-the-go! Paleo and Vegan options.


  • 1 small avocado or half a large avocado (~ 150 grams)
  • 1 small orange or kiwi (peeled, sliced)
  • 1 to 2 strips of fresh ginger root (1 Tablespoon grated)
  • 12 to 15 ounces almond or coconut milk (the less you use, the thicker it is)
  • 12 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 12 teaspoons spirulina powder (around 35 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Optional – pinch of cardamom
  • Optional plant protein powder
  • Optional chia seed or topping of choice


  1. Peel your avocado and remove the core. Place in a blender, adding the orange or kiwi, grated ginger, non-dairy milk, maple syrup, spices, and spirulina on top.
  2. Blend until smooth and pour into two glasses.
  3. Optional: Add a dash of coconut milk then place a fork in the middle of the cup to “swirl” together if you want that effect.
  4. Optional – For thicker smoothies and extra protein, add in 1 Tablespoon chia seed or 1 scoop protein powder.
