When I first gave this smoothie to James and asked him how tasted he said it was good and then immediately looked very suspicious and demanded to know why it was so dark green but tasted sweet. I replied by telling him ‘oh you know, just fruit and stuff…certainly not a high protein bacteria extract from the bottom of a lake somewhere…’ Little did he know that in that there 100% was a bacteria extract, otherwise known as spirulina in this little smoothie which is also bursting full of vitamins B, C, D, A, E, antioxidants and iron as well as natural sugars to give a nice energy kick – fool! Well, at least he’s a healthy fool, and you can be too.
1 tablespoon of organic spirulina powder
1 teaspoon of honey – this is good for people not used to green smoothies as it will help take the edge of, not dissimilar to spoonful of sugar helping the medicine go down, a la Mary Poppins
1/4 honey dew melon
Handful of spinach
1/2 cup of water
Put the spinach in a blender first, followed by everything else and blend until smooth.
