We had to feature this delicious smoothie by The Healthy Bean, after testing it out in our kitchen. Not only is it beautiful to look at, but this Purple Monster Smoothie is packed with nutrients, antioxidants, carbs, healthy fats, and protein! If you don’t have blue spirulina, feel free to use the green variety, or sub it out completely with a cup of spinach.

This awesome recipe was put together by local nutritionist (and owner of The Healthy Bean), Marisa Meleca. For others, checkout her blog and be sure to follow her on Facebook!

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
