What is Spirulina?


Creative Spirulina Recipes
Spirulina Guacamole
Spirulina blends really well with avocado and gives the guacamole a beautiful dark green color.  Here is a basic guac recipe, but feel free to add spirulina to your favorite version of guacamole!

  • 2 avocados
  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of salsa
  • Juice from 1 fresh lime
  • Generous dash of cayenne
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tsp spirulina powder

Mix all ingredients with a hand blender.  Add the spirulina last so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the container!


Spirulina Hummus


You can also substitute other beans in place of the chickpeas for a twist on this recipe.


  • 1 ¾ cup of chickpeas (or 1 15oz can)
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbsp. tahini
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp spirulina powder


Like with the guacamole, add the spirulina last so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of your mixing container.


Spirulina Salad Dressing


Spirulina is a great way to add more protein and nutrients to your salads – and also turn them an electric green color.  The avocado in the dressing makes it very creamy.


  • ½ avocado
  • 1 tsp spirulina
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 tbsp. miso (preferably white)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ cup water
  • Salt to taste


Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender.   Recipe adapted from choosingraw.com


Remember, you can always add spirulina to any of your favorite fresh juices or smoothies!
