Green Monster Smoothie & ENERGYbits Spirulina

I've been a big fan of spirulina for a while. So when I was invited to try out ENERGYbits spirulina I was keen to give them a go!



ENERGYbits are 100% organically grown spirulina. That's it! ENERGYbits have got ahold of this awesome superfood, put it into little bite sized 'bits', done some great modern styling, added a little groovy metal tin to carry them around in, and made this 'hippy weirdo superfood' just a little bit more 'cool and mainstream'. I like it!

I love that Spirulina is a FOOD, and not a supplement. I've stayed away from supplements on the whole, always striving to find what I need from natural food sources. Spirulina algae is 64% protein - the highest concentration of protein in the world! It also has the highest concentration of antioxidants, the highest concentration of beta carotene and the second highest concentration of Omega 3 in the world and contains 40 vitamins and minerals. 

They recommend you take ENERGYbits in the morning or prior to a workout and some of the biggest health benefits are;

  • to get a steady stream of energy
  • improve mental alertness
  • remove fatigue
  • healthy (natural) high protein snack
  • helps curb your hunger
Even though I've been using Spirulina for a while now I still find the smell and taste pretty dodgy - it's very 'green' so I preferred to swallow the bits whole. But it's worth it knowing the 'goodness' you're ingesting - we take disgusting tasting medicines when we're sick so I don't mind taking something a little unpleasant tasting for health - it's my 'healthy medicine' and I'm good with that!



I personally love using Spirulina in my morning smoothies. Talk about GREEN Goodness as a kickstart to your day! This is my go-to recipe.

  1. I'm a big Spirulina fan! It's one of the few nutrition products that I actually experienced the most if not all the benefits.
