For St. Paddy’s Day we whipped up a SUPER GREEN special, the Mint Cacao Spirulina Smoothie, which is our take on mint chocolate chip ice cream. It was such a favorite we decided to continue offering it at our Bethesda Row location until this coming Sunday! Spirulina (also referred to as blue-green microalgae) is a rich source of protein and iron. Spirulina contains significant amounts of niacin, potassium, magnesium, B vitamins and iron. It also has essential amino acids, compounds that are the building blocks of proteins. You can read more about this super herb here on Wellness Mama.
