Sweet Maca Mint Smoothie
In place of the usual green morning smoothie, I opted for some Easter decadence. I feel following smoothie recipes is arbitrary but getting new ideas for fanciful concoctions is always welcome. I recently purchased the Health Force vanilla spice Maca,
and quickly realized the other brands don't compare in fresh flavor and quality. I regularly take Maca for energy and hormonal balance and get an immediate lift upon taking it. This smoothie would make a great dessert, as it is quite sweet.
The Pink hues of the succulent pair so nicely with the smoothie!
Sweet Maca Mint Smoothie:
-1 cup frozen strawberries or raspberries
-1 cup almond, hemp, or cashew milk
-1 banana(frozen or not)
-4-6 mint leaves
-1 tablespoon Vanilla Spice Maca
-spirulina or Vitamineral Greens are always great ( changing the pink hue to a brilliant green)
Blend all ingredients in high speed blender and serve up one big smoothie or two small for an energizing treat.
