Spirulina Colada / Green Smoothie (Ve)
If you like spirulina coladas... This is a healthy take on the classic Pina Colada. A simple recipe, simply blend the raw ingredients together.
It's a health boost ideal for the morning or as an energy boost in the day. A tropical twist on the usual smoothie gives us those beachy summer vibes, oh-so dreamy!
We've used coconut milk in this recipe, you may like to read 'What is the best plant-based milk?' in our article written by a team of nutritionists.
