My friends, I finally made another vegan recipe again, a vegan spirulina and blackberry smoothie. Have you ever heard of spirulina? I hadn’t, it is an algae that is rich in nutrients, vitamins and proteins, one of those “superfoods.” I decided to order some blue powder on Amazon because I am currently organizing the blog event “Colorful Food.” The idea is to create a recipe in one of the seven rainbow colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink. As I am the host of the event, I had to of course also represent all colors on my blog. Below you can see the colorful fruit pizza that started the event with all rainbow colors, followed by red strawberry pancakes, orange mango mini cakes, yellow lemon soufflé, green kiwi sheet cake and today a BLUE breakfast smoothie.
You can probably imagine that blue was scaring me because I ask for no additional food coloring to be used, so I looked for naturally blue ingredients. That’s hard if you mainly focus on fruits like I do as this is a baking blog. Red cabbage apparently can turn blue, if done correctly, but that I didn’t want to try. So I came across spirulina, normally algae is green, but apparently this one is naturally blue.
