Wacky Wakame Smoothie Recipe

Alright, seaweed lovers (and soon-to-be seaweed lovers), we have a smoothie recipe for you! We decided to start with using wakame as the sea green because it is widely available from your local health food store and it has fabulous powers. We detailed some of the benefits in our last post but let’s focus on our muscles for this one.

Among other things, seaweed contains extraordinarily high counts of calcium and iron (a tablespoon of wakame can contain 60mg of calcium). Calcium is especially great for those who hit the gym because it aids in muscle contraction and healing. Iron, of course, is fantastic for our circulatory system and helps provide energy.

Check out this excellent smoothie recipe:




  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 cup of coconut milk or regular milk
  • 1 tbsp wakame seaweed
  • ½ Granny Smith apple


Blend and enjoy!
