Kate Middleton reportedly puts spirulina in her morning smoothie

Marie Claire UK reports that the duchess likes to mix spirulina powder in her kale, spinach, lettuce, coriander and blueberry juice smoothie. Though it arguably doesn't look appetizing, there are apparently major health benefits, like protein, vitamins and amino acids that increase energy and boost the immune system.
