Make Your Own Maca-phrodisiac Smoothie!

Maca is a Peruvian aphrodisiac that helps to regulate hormones and is rich in nutrients like potassium, calcium, magnesium and high in protein.  

Maca provides a great energy boost, without the side effects of caffeine. This sweet love potion is a great way to start the day. Blend in a banana for an extra energy kick and more creaminess.

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup of hemp seeds or cashews (preferably soaked overnight)
  • 1 cup of coconut water (I’m loving the Harmless Harvest brand right now)
  • ½ cup of filtered water
  • 1 Medjool date
  • 2 teaspoons of Mesquite powder
  • ½ teaspoon of Maca powder
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  • ½ teaspoon of ginger powder and/or fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla powder
  • *Optional: one banana

Directions

Blend until smooth.
