The AOP Smoothie Series: Smoothie#2 -Spirulina Power Smoothie
The second smoothie recipe from Australian Organic Products introduces the Spirulina Power Smoothie! Made with organic Spirulina powder and delicious coconut water, the odd blue and green colour of Spirulina powder hints the abundance of health benefits of this freshwater plant.
Smoothie #2: The Spirulina Power SmoothieSpirulina has been researched for many years all over the world and is now one of the most well known Superfoods, along with its cousin Chlorella.
