I was recently exposed to Maca Powder, a ‘superfood’ that grows at high altitudes. It has been linked to increasing energy levels and balancing hormones just to name a couple of perks to the flavour, which is why I enjoy adding it to my smoothies. To me, maca powder has a rich nutty flavour, but it can be an acquired taste (Erin isn’t a fan, but I love it). It’s my new favourite smoothie add-on :). Read on for the full recipe and the brands of the powders I use. (more…)
Just in case you weren’t getting enough smoothie recipes, here’s another one, this time with a kick of antioxidants from the delicious frozen blueberries. You’ll start to notice that most of my smoothies will either have spirulina or hemp seed in them. If you’re looking to experiment with smoothie making, I would suggest grabbing one or both of these ingredients. I like to think of them (and bananas…) as my base because they’re fairly tasteless– in a good way because you can add them to anything — but add an extra healthy bonus, either through additional protein, nutrients or a detoxifier.
