As with any drink containing blended fruit, this smoothie reaches peak flavour if you use ripe fruits. They carry more concentrated sweetness so remember to check how ripe the fruits are before using them.


If you want to add a cooling touch, consider using frozen fruit and berries. They will also make it thicker without diluting it as ice cubes might.

Questions about lactose-free spirulina smoothies

While it is very simple to make, you might still have questions that need answering. Read more below to find out everything you need about this delicious, colourful drink.

What is spirulina powder in a lactose-free smoothie?
Perfect for lactose-free smoothies, spirulina is a protein-filled alga that is dried and ground into a powdery substance. It has a strong earthy flavour that pairs well with many fruits and vegetables. Merely mix it with the other ingredients in a blender, and the powder will naturally infuse the drink with its unique taste. Our spirulina smoothie recipe is the perfect way to give the green powder a shot!
How much spirulina to use in a lactose-free smoothie?
Because of its characteristic, strong flavour, you do not need to add a lot of spirulina powder to smoothies. We recommend about one tablespoon per person, but if you find its flavour too mild or too strong, you are welcome to adjust according to your taste!
What to add to a lactose-free spirulina smoothie?
Fruits and vegetables are quite common in a lactose-free spirulina smoothie, adding both freshness and sweetness to balance the spirulina’s earthiness. We opted for pineapple, apple, blueberries, cucumber, and spinach. They taste incredible together and give the beverage a beautiful colour. Along with honey, you get a sweet base, and with yogurt and chia seeds, you have a flavourful and refreshing smoothie.
