Maca is an old, more recently discovered superfood full of antioxidants and amino acids. And guess what? It’s a plant (surprise, surprise). It’s difficult to pinpoint the flavor of the fine, tan powder, but one of my best friends describes it as “slightly nutty, a little bit sweet.” – needless to say, we love it. Everyone should add this superfood to their pantries for an all natural nutrient boost to yogurt, cereal, and smoothies.
This smoothie in particular can help if you’ve been thinking about chocolate all day but know you should resist the temptation of chocolate ice cream. I can assure you, this will satisfy your craving and make you feel a lot better than the excessive fat, sugar, and calories that ice cram provides.
Ps: it’s vegan, gluten free, and dairy free.
