I wanted to make a new Miyogi that has something else then only fruits and nuts. A friend of mine gave me a sample of spirulina. It is known as a green algue and said it’s mostly perfect to take after your workout. So what is spirulina?
Spirulina Raspberry Miyogi
Spirulina is a green algae (sticky goey plants from the sea). In asian countries algae are more then normal to be used in dishes or to take as additional vitamins. (Think about the seaweed “Nori” wrapped around your sushi or “Wakame” the seaweed you often get as side salad.) You can find so much on the internet about this power food, but what interested me is that dried spirulina contains about 60% (51–71%) protein. Spirulina is available in caps, powder form or raw. I got to try the spirulina powder from Body en Fit.
Green Powder Protein PoW PoW in your bowl!
My first impression? GREEEN! It is soo beautifully green it already looks yummy. The scent is very grassy and a bit salty. I can’t compare it to a plant or grass but it has a same kind of scent. The taste of it raw is very strong. So when using it in a Miyogi or smoothie, start with small portions or you might overdo it. To add some extra flavor I took some raspberries (the color of goes so nice with the green teehee! ).
What do you need?
– 2 hands of raspberries
– 1 hand of walnuts
-1 tbl spoon of flaxseeds
– tbl spoon of hennep seeds
-1 tbl spoon of honey/stevia
How to prepare it?
Take the raspberries, nuts, seeds and sweetners and mix them right. As a final.. Top it with the spirulina and mix that well together until you have the right flavour.
