Have you ever wondered how green smoothies taste? Many people have a misconception about green smoothies. They think green smoothies taste terrible and tend to gulp down the smoothie very fast without having a taste of it.

Today, say goodbye to the idea of ‘greens taste terrible’ and try this mouthwatering spirulina & straspberry detox smoothie. Very green but sweet and packed with nutrients that will take your health to the next level!

Spirulina Powder:

Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that dates to the 16th century and it originates from Mexico. This powder is a superfood due to its astounding nutritional content and health benefits. Vegetarians use this powder as a dietary supplement for protein and vitamins.

There are numerous health benefits of incorporating this powder into your diet. It aids with weight loss due to its low-calorie content. When you consume spirulina, you tend to lose appetite which leads to weight loss. From today, make spirulina your best friend and see those pounds drop really fast.

Spirulina aids in digestion, manages diabetes symptoms, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure. For those with a slow metabolism and struggle to lose weight, say goodbye to your problems! Spirulina is known to boost and fire up your metabolism. Take this smoothie in the morning, and you will be full energy for the rest of the day! Want to be productive and feel rejuvenated? Then the spirulina and straspberry-mint detox smoothie is a must in your morning routine.

Why Straspberry?

Well my little sister inspired me to shorten the name of the detox. Instead of ‘the spirulina-strawberry- raspberry & mint detox smoothie,’ I decided to shorten it to ‘the spirulina & straspberry-mint detox smoothie’ because both the strawberry and raspberry are berries that belong to the same family.

Serves 2


  • 20 grams strawberries
  • 10 grams raw almonds
  • 20 grams raspberries
  • 300 grams vanilla yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon of spirulina powder
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of moringa powder
  • 3 ice blocks
  • 200 ml water
  • Mint leaves


  1. Put the yoghurt, strawberries, raw almonds, raspberries, spirulina, moringa, ice blocks, water and mint leaves in a high-speed blender.
  2. Blend until smooth and creamy, if the smoothie is too thick, add some water bit by bit until you reach the level of creaminess you want.
  3. Pour in a jar, glass or bowl
  4. Sprinkle some mint leaves, raspberries and raw almonds on top for a crunchy-chewy texture.
  5. Enjoy!

All thanks to The Refillery SA for the wonderful ingredients.

    1. I got the Spirulina powder from The Refillery South Africa pty. You can get the powder from stores that sell super foods such as moringa powder, chia seeds or any herb stores near you. Which country do you currently live in?

        I’m in the US. I’ll have to check my local health store again, the last time I looked they didn’t carry it.

    Smoothies and smoothie bowls are, hands down, my most favorite way to get loads of nutrition into myself and my kids. There are so many options and varieties and they are so delicious! Did you know today (June 21) is National Smoothie Day?!
