Spirulina does have a bad rap for tasting fishy or embodying the essence of pond scum in your mouth. Sounds appetizing right? Don’t be put off by a recipe with spirulina. When combined with the creamy sweetness of frozen banana ice cream and topped with fresh jelly black mission figs, your tastebuds are dazzled by so much sweetness that the spirulina is a subtle afterthought.
