Raise your hand if these beautiful açai bowls are everything on your Instagram feed? I’m obsessed with all the colorful smoothie bowls made using healthy ingredients. One ingredient that may not be on your radar (yet) is spirulina. It’s been around for awhile (actually one of the oldest life forms on Earth!), but it’s gaining in popularity and for good reasons. It’s derived from algae and is typically sold as a powder or tablet. Spirulina also contains tons of vitamins, iron and protein. It’s the superfoods of all superfoods! Add just a little bit to your smoothie or açai bowl for a healthy breakfast recipe.

It’s vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free. This is the Holy Grail of all acai bowls.
