Lately, I have been enjoying this spirulina drink in the morning instead of coffee to energize and detox my body. I got a busy toddler to keep up with, which I am sure you can relate to if you’ve had kids.
Regardless, many of us are busy with little time to spare in the morning. If that is you, then this spirulina shot is for you!
I add magnesium powder and lemon juice to my spirulina drink, but if you are pressed for time, mix a tsp of spirulina into some orange juice, give a little stir and drink up. Mixing spirulina in juice such as orange juice makes spirulina palatable and enjoyable.
On my recent bioresonance food intolerance test, coffee came up with moderate sensitivity. It was also on my avoid food list from my viome gut test, so I decided to start cutting coffee out and having this spirulina drink instead.
I’m not going to lie. I still sometimes miss my morning cup of coffee and sometimes have it on days off when my partner makes it. But I feel great when I have this spirulina drink and am out the door a lot quicker after a 10-minute workout, shower, and makeup.
Starting your morning off right with this spirulina morning drink will make you feel fantastic, especially if you have saved yourself time in the kitchen and managed to sneak a quick workout. The rest of my day goes well when I feel accomplished in the morning with a mini to-do list done.
Benefits of this spirulina shot recipe with orange juice, lemon, and magnesium
Spirulina powder is an excellent plant protein source and contains antioxidants with anti-inflammatory and immune-stimulating effects.
Oranges and lemons are excellent sources of vitamin c, a crucial nutrient for the immune system to prevent colds. Lemons also have an alkalizing and cleansing effect on the body.
I added a scoop of Seeking Health’s Magnesium Glycinate powder to this spirulina drink to help with the metabolism of the natural sugar found in orange juice.
Magnesium is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies. Consuming sugar and refined carbohydrates further deplete magnesium stores in the body as magnesium is required to utilize glucose in the body for energy production. Low magnesium levels have also been associated with insulin resistance and weight gain.
Start your morning with this spirulina drink full of antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals that has a zesty yet sweet flavor.
Spirulina powder tastes much better when mixed with orange juice, but I only use a quarter cup of orange juice in the recipe as it is high in natural sugars.
Enjoy this spirulina drink’s benefits when you make this spirulina shot recipe in the morning!
