Protein Power Smoothie Bowl

By: Suzanne Boothby

One of the best superfoods you can add to a smoothie is spirulina. This blue-green algae is an amazing plant-based protein with B vitamins, calcium and chlorophyll. When you combine it with frozen peas, another great source of protein and also fiber, you get a green smoothie that will keep you full until lunch.
