As of lately, I have been putting Maca and blueberries in everything. From smoothies of course! To homemade energy bitz, to soups and raw desserts.
What makes Maca so cool is not only its health benefits, which I get to in a second. What makes maca stand out is its signature smell and aroma it gives! It lends this malty, caramel and earthy rich note that mixes so well vanilla and chocolate like a hot knife through butter.
Here are some rather interesting health benefits Maca seems to have especially in these areas of ones health:
-increasing stamina and athletic performance
-chronic fatigue syndrome
-boosts libido and sexual function
-balancing out hormones
-reducing depression and anxiety
-mental focus and alertness
Now that you know a little on the health benefits that Maca can do for you. Let’s get onto the best part of it all. How to actually implement Maca into a smoothie!
