Who doesn’t love a dessert that’s healthier and looks like a unicorn?!
I love making “nicecream” when I have extra bananas on hand – whenever I have multiple bananas that will go bad before I use them all, I slice them up and immediately put them in a ziplog bag and freeze them. Perfect to throw into smoothies, thaw and make banana bread, or blend to make banana “nicecream”. A delicious soft serve!
Throw in some Blue Majik to the mix, and you’ve got a gorgeous blue banana nicecream, as magically delicious as it looks. So, what exactly is Blue Majik? You may have heard of spirulina before, a blue green algae known for its antioxidant properties, as well as being (surprisingly) full of protein! It also contains vitamins, essential fatty acids, minerals, and essential amino acids.
The active ingredient found in Spirulina responsible for its anti-inflammatory activities is C-phycocyanin, a pigment commonly found in blue-green algae. Therefore E3 Blue Majik is the only company that you can buy this powerful ingredient, extracted from spirulina. A powerful algae, in which “the antioxidant, immunomodulatory, and anti-inflammatory activities of these may play an important role in human health.”
They give you a great low-down about Blue Majik here.
From one research article, it states that “C-phycocyanin can selectively inhibit the activity of cyclooxygenase-2, a critical enzyme in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins. Because of its chemical structure, C-phycocyanin also displays antioxidative and free radical scavenging properties, which may contribute, at least in part, to its anti-inflammatory activities.”
People have been using spirulina in their diet for multiple centuries, dating back to the 16th century. Want to read more nerdy research on the benefits? Check out this research article here. Not to mention, the blue color adds a pop of brightness to milks, smoothies, and other goods that’s hard not to love!
