Blue Majik Smoothie
I'm all about this unicorn food phase, especially when it means adding naturally beautiful colors to our foods! Anything for the instagram, right?
One of the prettiest and natural ways to color a smoothie? E3 Life Blue Majik powder. Blue Magik is a condensed extract of Spirulina, a type of algae. The powerful antioxidant Phycocyanin is what gives it that bright blue color, which is highly anti-inflammatory.
Algae may be gross sounding, but this is a magical type of algae because it can help restore balance to our mind and body. It is actually said to be the first protein source on the planet and the most nutrient dense food known to man! It is linked with increased endurance, energy, faster recovery after exercise, increased immune system, and increased ability to manage daily stress. This super food supplement provides over 65 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids. Blue magik is 64% protein compared to just 22% in animal protein! It is also highly bioavailable, meaning our bodies absorb about 97% of what we ingest, compared to 5-25% bioavailability in most supplements.
So now that we are all in love with this weird blue powder, how do we use it?? I like to put it in my post workout smoothie as it can help reduce muscle soreness. Get creative with smoothie bowls or mixing it with your yogurt to make it a beautiful baby blue color!
