Hi there my friends! I wanted to get this post up yesterday but I got hit with a crazy 24 hour flu/craziness & so here I am posting it today. This is one of those recipes that just doesn’t photograph the color as beautifully as it is in real life but this is a must make recipe 🙂 with tons of health benefits.
So if you follow any forms of social media – you’ve seen the onslaught of blue hued foods/drinks/bowls etc. Where do they get that lovely color? Well Blue Majik is the answer. Here is the low-down on this magical powder:
Pop Sugar shares: Derived from spirulina, Blue Majik is a proprietary extract of the blue-green algae Arthrospira platensis. Much like green spirulina, Blue Majik is prized for being nutrient dense; full of vitamins (especially B12), enzymes, and minerals, it gets its bright blue hue from C-phycocyanin, a type of storage protein rich in amino acids. C-phycocyanin is also what puts the blue in Blue Majik and so much of the value in the trendy ingredient. Studies show C-phycocyanin to be rich in antioxidantswith anti-inflammatory properties, and it may promote brain health.
I’ve been experimenting with this blue powder for the past two months. I’ve been diagnosed with an auto-immune disease and anything anti-infammatory is my focus. Plus, it is a powerful pain reliever (natural) which I prefer versus OTC pain relievers. Lastly, this powerful powder does have a strong odor in the bottle however is undetectable in recipes. Seriously. I find this absolutely crazy how it has no flavor but I enjoy it in smoothies, bowls and these bites. Plus that color… is everything.
