Want a vitamin boost? These algae-based recipes provide plenty of energy and vitality during the cold winter months.

Our natural miracle cure, the algae, is also finding more and more recognition in the culinary world. Not surprising, because microalgae can be called superfood with a clear conscience. As carriers of a multitude of valuable nutrients such as vitamin C, provitamin A, vitamin B12 and numerous other B vitamins and minerals, they are beneficial for our entire organism.

Natural super talent

Algae have a high nutrient density and on top of that are true environmental supporters, because they have a resource-saving effect on our animal and plant world. To date, more than 30,000 algae species have been documented that differ in size, colour and structure. One also speaks of micro- and macroalgae. More about the texture of algae including DIY face mask to imitate you can read about it here.

Algae recipes for cold winter days

Of culinary relevance are mainly green, brown and red algae, which are often referred to as food algae. The best known algae representatives are therefore Chlorella, Spirulina, Wakame, Nori and Afa algae.

Marine plants play an essential role especially for plant-based nutrition, as they have an increased content of vitamin B12 and protein (up to 50% proportions). As a vegetable protein source, they are therefore the optimal alternative to animal products. The antioxidant properties also have a lasting positive influence on our immune system.

Fit through the winter - the natural miracle cures make it possible. That is why we have been inspired by these three Superfood recipes:

Cold Brew Chlorella Green Tea*

Ingredients:

  • 500 ml water
  • 1 bag of green tea
  • 1,2 teaspoon chlorophyll powder
  • honey or agave syrup as required
  • 1 slice of lemon
  • Mineral water or tap water for dilution
    Note: prepare a fine sieve

Preparation:

Pour the Chlorella algae powder with a little water into a large glass or carafe and mix - lumps should be avoided. Pour on the remaining water and add the green tea bag. Leave the container tightly closed in the refrigerator for 10 hours. Then shake well and filter the cold brew through a sieve. Serving suggestion: put some agave syrup or honey in a glass, then add 200ml of cold brew and fill up to 500ml with mineral water. Add lemon and voilà!
