If you haven’t introduced yourself to raw maca root powder, I highly recommend you become acquainted. I recently added maca into our regular rotation of smoothie supplements, and I’m bordering on obsessed. Maca is an ancient Peruvian superfood believed to have an array of nourishing and healing properties. It has a nutty, malty flavor so it pairs well with nut-based, creamy recipes. If you taste it on its own, you’ll notice that it’s both sweet and spicy with just a touch of bitterness which may or may not strike your flavor-fancy. It certainly strikes mine… especially with this added tidbit of information. Maca is also renowned for its supercharged nutritional powers. It’s rich in vitamins B, C + E, helps balance hormones and mood, increases energy + stamina, and keeps skin clear. It’s one powerful, delicious powder, and it’s the perfect addition to this smoothie.
In addition to the maca, two frozen bananas, almond milk, almond butter, and vanilla extract take this beverage from good to mmm-worthy. The combination is so delicious that it would be a shame to waste even one drop of it, so slurping loudly through your straw is absolutely encouraged.
