Thanks to blue spirulina, you can now give up food colors full of synthetic ingredients and still enjoy exciting desserts and blue smoothies that make your heart race! But what’s the secret of blue spirulina?
Blue smoothie is the new green!
Blue Spirulina is a bright blue pigment, extracted from the green algae spirulina, which grows in lakes, springs and ponds. Besides high nutritional value, blue spirulina has the ability to give your favourite recipes an amazing electric blue color in a natural way. Due to its strong pigmentation (phycocyanin), blue spirulina can be used to add vivid blue color to any food. Add half a teaspoon of blue spirulina to your morning smoothie or raw porridge and make your breakfast more exciting!
Is there a difference between blue and green spirulina?
You are probably familiar with green spirulina because of its rather intense flavor, which can take some time and patience to get used to. Blue spirulina is a different story! Blue spirulina powder has been stripped of the fishy flavor of green spirulina, while still retaining all the goodness and benefits. If you have tried adding green spirulina to a smoothie and didn’t like the taste, it’s definitely worth giving blue spirulina a try! By using blue spirulina in smoothies, you get an earthy and truly delicious blue smoothie without a single ounce of that unfamiliar fishy taste and smell!
Blue Spirulina is a good source of plant protein and carotenoids

- strengthen the immune system
- support cells
- increase energy and performance
- promote beneficial bacteria

*if processing blue spirulina at high temperatures, it may lose some of its bright color and beneficial properties, if you wish to bake striped bread or an interestingly colored biscuit, you can still mix blue spirulina into the dough, but bear in mind that the nutritional value and brightness of the blue shade will not be quite the same as for uncooked foods.
You can mix blue spirulina powder with yellow fruits (such as mango) to get a green color, but you can also mix them with pink or red colors (such as Centralsun’s pink dragon fruit powder or berries) to get a lavender or purple hue.
