Red Maca Root Smoothie Recipe

Good morning, beauties!

Let’s take a minute to talk about Maca Root. Maca Root has gained a lot of popularity over the last few years and it’s easy to see why. It’s absolutely loaded with health benefits. Everything from assisting with regulating hormone imbalance, reducing stress and anxiety, helping your complexion, preventing hair loss, reducing or preventing osteoporosis, etc. (If you want to know more about the benefits of Maca Root Powder you can read about it here: https://www.themacateam.com/maca-benefits)

Wow! That all sounds awesome! Let’s all eat Maca Root, right? Well… to be perfectly honest, it isn’t my favorite flavor. It’s a bit like malt but not nearly as tasty. It took some getting used to. But I found by adding Maca into these smoothies it makes it pretty pleasant to consume. You can switch up the fruit to what you like and what’s in season. Sometimes I add sweetener if the fruit is very sour. I hope you enjoy!

Stay beautiful!
