Spirulina Energy Balls

Let’s talk spirulina. 🙂

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that you won’t think twice about eating once you learn how ridiculously good it is for you. It’s been called one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet; and here’s why. Spirulina is plant-based “complete protein.” One serving contains 16 grams of protein and all of the nine essential amino acids! It’s also loaded with calcium, iron, magnesium, and vitamins A, E, and K. 

SPIRULINA BENEFITS

May Lower Blood Pressure

May Reduce Cholesterol

Increases Energy

Contains Powerful Antioxidants 

Anti-Inflammatory

Anti-Cancer Properties

Easy to Digest

Boosts Metabolism 

 

So what to do with the algae. 🙂 Throwing it into a smoothie is always a great option. However, one of our favorite ways to get a daily dose is to make these Spirulina Energy Balls! They are a super easy, on-the-go snack, plus the dates and peanut butter help reduce the “green” taste. We make sure to buy non-irradiated, non-GMO spirulina, like the one from Nuts.com. You can also get all the other ingredients for these spirulina balls on there as well! And if you are pregnant, it’s best to avoid spirulina for the time being. 🙂

Take a look below to see how easy these Spirulina Energy Balls are to make!
