This is my signature Green Goddess Smoothie. 

This is the most protein packed, energy boosting, lean muscle building smoothie I could make that is vegan, gluten free and well just plain tasty.

I have this for breakfast at least 2 times a week and use it as my post workout shake on feast days where I work legs or have two kettlebell classes back to back.

Dried spirulina contains about 60% (51–71%) protein. It is a complete protein containing all essential amino acids, though with reduced amounts of methionine, cysteine, and lysine when compared to the proteins of meat, eggs, and milk. It is, however, superior to typical plant protein, such as that from legumes.

Imagine a plant that can nourish your body by providing most of the protein you need to live, help prevent the annoying sniffling and sneezing of allergies, reinforce your immune system, help you control high blood pressure and cholesterol, and help protect you from cancer. Does such a “super food” exist?

Yes. It’s called spirulina.
