Maca Magic Desert Dessert Smoothies

Sarah E.

While summer temperatures soar, it’s great to cool down with refreshing chilled smoothies for a hearty breakfast or brunch. Recently reunited with my culinary muse and partner extraordinaire Courtney Pool, I have been inspired to throw heaping tablespoons of maca into recipes. She doesn’t seem to mind, bless her raw vegan gorgeous heart.

Maca adds a caramel-malt flavor, which is well-combined with ingredients like indulgent cacao, protein-rich hemp seeds, omega-3 and bulk-adding chia seeds and alkalizing superfood powder Vitamineral Green. Experimenting with local, fruity accents like strawberries or other berries can add color and texture to rounds out your delicious, nutrient-dense meal.

Here are the two latest recipes I have created. Hope you like them as much as my muse and I have. Enjoy! ;)

THE CACAOINATOR

Sort of sounds like a B Arnold flick, right? If Arnold had any sense, he’d be downing the cacaoinator instead of eating his words on national news…

Ingredients:

4 Tbsp. Chia

1 Tbsp. Vitamineral green

Stevia

1 to 2 Tbsp. Cacao powder

1-2 tsp Lucuma

1-2 tsp Maca

1 tbs Hemp seeds

1/2 cup Pumpkin seed mylk

Brazil nuts (garnish, optional)

Bee Pollen (garnish, optional)

Ice

 

STRAWBERRY MACA ELIXIR

The secret is in the garnish! Chopped raw cacao paste or raw cacao nibs or bars and bee pollen, plus strawberries, makes this super-decadent. You can also garnish with mint, or any other type of berry or superfood.

This smoothie is rich, decadent, and best enjoyed with a friend or lover.

Ingredients:

4 Tbsp. Chia

1 Tbsp. Cacao powder

1 Tbsp. Hemp Seeds

1/4  cup Almond Mylk

1/4  cup Pumpkin Seed Mylk

1 to 2 Tbsp. Maca

1 to 2 Tbsp. Stevia (to taste)

1 to 2 Tsp. Lucuma

Bee Pollen (garnish, optional)

Chopped cacao paste or raw cacao bars (garnish, optional)

Fresh strawberries (garnish, you may use other berries)
