Have you heard about maca? Maca is a root. To love the flavor of this drink you will need to love a nutty flavor.
Nutrients: Amino acids, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, vitamins B1, B2, B12, C, and E.
Maca increases energy and supports the immune system. Good for anemia, chronic fatigue syndrome, impotence, fertility, menopausal symptoms and menstrual problems.
So having maca powder in my pantry I decided to make a milkshake with it!
1 cup organic coconut milk
4 cups filtered water
1 cup ice cubes
1/2 cup dates, pitted
2 Tbsp maca powder
2 Tbsp nut butter (raw almond, peanut, sunflower)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp ground vanilla powder
1 cinnamon stick, reserved for garnish.
- Add liquids to a high-speed blender.
- Add ice cubes and dates and followed by the final four ingredients.
- Blend at high speed for another 30 seconds.
- Pour into four glasses and garnish with cinnamon sticks.
Oh, this looks fun! I enjoy milkshakes a lot but want a healthier option 🙂 Yum!
It is very delicious, try it, let me know what you think.
