It’s not easy drinking green.

Spirulina powder doesn’t really have a taste or a smell, but what it lacks in both of those, it makes up for in colour. To call it “green” would be an understatement. It’s Green with a capital G. It’s green with an attitude. It’s green on steroids. It’s so green that it is impossible to hide.

I started out by putting it in chocolate protein powder. It looked like whatever the Creature from the Black Swamp crawled out of.

I mixed a teaspoon with my vanilla protein powder, added water and shook well. It was greener than Kermit the Frog’s…well…let’s just say it was greener than Kermit.

I tried it in blueberry juice. It was frightening. Really frightening.

But, here’s the thing: as bad as all three concoctions *looked*...they all tasted great. Like, really great. It was just the fact that they looked gross that I either had to deal with or get over.

And, it’s not like I have anything against green stuff. I love green stuff. I eat a pillowcase-sized bag of spinach a week. I just don’t like to drink creamy, sweet green stuff first thing in the morning.

So, you know what I did? I bought a green bottle for my protein shakes/smoothies. I’m apparently very easy to fool because…you know what? worked.
