Super Thick Chocolate Maca Protein Smoothie

I’m all about Maca powder recently. You can add it to anything from yoghurt to smoothies and even coffee. Its got so many great health benefits, too.

Its an adaptogen, a natural product that increases the body’s resistance to physical and mental stressors. If you haven’t tried it yet, pick some up in your local grocery store in the health food section or on Amazon to give it a whirl!

Maca is used for stamina, endurance and hormonal balance and is a natural energizer.

Adding frozen fruit give any smoothie the perfect, icy texture with the added benefits of their antioxidants and vitamins. Definitely better than just plain ol’ ice.

You Will Need:

  • 1c almond milk or other milk of choice
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder of choice
  • 1t Maca powder
  • ~1.5c frozen fruit I used strawberries, blueberries and pitted cherries

Instructions:

  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Depending on which fruits (or how much) you use and your personal preference, you may need more almond milk to thin it out. This baby is SUPER THICK.
