Let your mind be free and your body be radiant. 🌺☘️💐

Blend: 2-3 ripe bananas, chard leaves, a scoop of any vegan protein powder, a cup of blueberries, a dash of spirulina and a tablespoon of pb2 (powdered peanut butter with the fat extracted). You can also use regular peanut butter.

Spirulina is blue-algae,  loaded with nutrients that can have powerful effects on your body and brain.

According to USDA, a single tablespoon (7 grams) of dried spirulina powder contains:

Protein: 4 grams.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamin): 11% of the RDA.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): 15% of the RDA.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin): 4% of the RDA.
Copper: 21% of the RDA.
Iron: 11% of the RDA.
It also contains decent amounts of magnesium, potassium and manganese, and small amounts of almost every other nutrient that we need.

You can buy it in a powder form from any big food or health store, and you only need a tablespoon, so it is a good investment! I use it daily in my smoothie. It gives is the tinted dark-blue/greenish color you see in both pictures.

Stay healthy:)
