Watch out Gentlemen: Vanilla Almond Maca Smoothie

 

Maca Smoothie

The reason the gentlemen will have to be warned is because one of the benefits of Maca powder is it elevates the libido! I know a lady whose husband asked her to please limit the maca smoothies because he couldn’t keep up! That being said, it is also great for men’s virility and libido.  Maca is an adaptogen which is a substance that enhances our immune system. Maca has many of the B vitamins, helps balance hormones and adds energy. I like the Navitas Naturals Maca Powder since it is organic and sourced directly from the farmers in Peru. Smoothie recipe below! For a super powerful smoothie I like to add Golden Flax Seed
and Sun Warrior Warrior Protein Powder, but the Maca blended with almond/coconut milk is just fine too! I love to use organic almond milk and if I don’t have time to make my own, my favorites are by Moonjuice and the Mylkman. The Mylkman was first featured here over a year ago, and now the founder is a big star in the organic food world. He uses coconut water as his base so the milk is naturally sweet. For an extra bang I like to add some Organic Ceylon Cinnamon Powder
the non toxic kind! The lovely grey sweater was provided by EILEEN FISHER.

  1. NOTICED YOU MAKING THIS ON THE VIDEO AT EILEEN FISHER; ENCOURAGED ME TO TRY MAKING MY OWN ALMOND MILK (I ALSO USED COCONUT WATER TO MAKE IT AFTER READING YOUR MYLKMAN POST); I PUT STRAWBERRIES, ALMOND MILK AND THE MACA INTO MY SMOOTHIE AND I AM NOW HOOKED FOR LIFE. THANK YOU.

  2. Hi! It is funny COINCIDENCE, but every morning I am drinking almost the exactly same shake. I am not using cinnamon and yogurt (trying to stay away from dairy), but I add pineapple. I am using the same brand of maca powder and flex seeds. it is delicious!

  3. I don’t know why but my daughter and I always wake up thirsty, even hungry but most of all we love to drink something yummie in the morning. I cannot wait to make this smoothie ( might not give too much to my 5 year old, ha!ha! unless regulating the amount of maca) but nonetheless, it sounds perfect ! A little coco powder for Vienna will disguise the healthy aspect for sure.
    Love it! thank you Shiva……BTW, love your look with the sweater and jeans!

  4. great post! flax seeds have become part of the daily diet here now that i have a grinder. love the EF sweater, your ombre hair, the open kitchen shelving and especially the modern art display on the fridge. : )

  5. i made this for myself this morning (minus the banana and yogurt, plus a drop of honey & royal jelly)…it was super yum! i let it sit a bit to get thick, and i’m thinking it would be also be wonderful slightly heated for winter. thanks!

  6. made this this morning, so good! thanks for sharing. I also love your nail polish color, what color and who makes it? the perfect deep red. happy holidays!

    • I have been wearing polish by Butter which is less toxic than the standard polishes. I will post soon on the line.
