Chocolate Banana Maca Smoothie
One of the easiest things to make ever…this is my go-to for breakfast and occasionally even dessert! It’s healthy enough for either. The combination of maca and cacao is amazing - try this before your next workout and see how you feel.
Maca is one of my favorite superfoods because it: boosts mood, relieves anxiety, improves memory & brain function, increases energy and athletic performance, and even increases fertility and libido. If that's not enough, maca is in the cruciferous family (like broccoli and cauliflower, etc) which is linked to preventing cancer cell growth. And I love the flavor. Goes well in smoothies, desserts, baked goods, even ice cream. You can expect more recipes to come with this magical ingredient so stock up now!
1 cup nut milk (I always use homemade – this time was almond)
1 banana (fresh or frozen)
1 Tbsp nut butter (I prefer cashew or almond here)
2 Tbsp raw cacao powder (I used this brand)
1 Tbsp flax meal
1 tsp maca powder (I used this brand)
handful frozen cauliflower (can sub ice)
optional toppings – hemp seeds, bee pollen
Put all ingredients (except toppings) in a blender and mix until smooth. Store any leftovers (ha!) in the fridge overnight.
