Jessica elaborated space smoothies with spirulina, as an activity in the project named CIMA which we are part of, and in the research aerospace path. The green smoothies, suitable for an astronaut’s diet provide the necessary nutrients to be healthy. A smoothie is a thick drink made from crushed fruit, vegetables and liquid, sometimes with yoghurt or cream. They can be added other ingredients such as nuts, oats or seeds. By consuming blended fruits and vegetables instead of juices, we can retain the fiber found in these foods instead of removing it like juicing does. This leads to less food waste and increases satiety, or fullness, compared with drinking fruit and vegetable juices. Fiber is also a beneficial nutrient for digestive and heart health.
