Maca Iced “Coffee” Smoothie
Maca is an incredible root, used traditionally to benefit everything from libido and fertility to energy, brain function, mood, and more. In this tasty shake it’s mixed with vanilla and cinnamon for a latte-like flavor and blended cauliflower makes it creamy and satiating.
This shake recipe is flexible based on what you have on hand. Frozen cauliflower could be replaced with frozen zucchini to provide a perfect creamy texture. almond butter which provides us with healthy fats, could be replaced with hemp seeds, flaxseeds, or any other nut butter you have on hand. If you prefer a lighter shake, you could use half water and half non-dairy milk.
If you’re a fan of chocolate, I highly recommend including the optional cacao nibs for a more robust flavor and an extra boost of antioxidants.
