A vegan banana smoothie recipe without Maca powder is impossible to me. The butterscotch flavor blends perfectly with the creamy banana and milk — there is no turning back! If you’ve checked out my True Blood Truffle recipe then you know I am crazy about this Peruvian root. For women it helps to relieve menstrual issues, for men it is dubbed “natures Viagra,” and for everyone it increases energy levels — and for some it even helps with acne!
Start off with a 2t dose of Maca, check your energy levels then increase up to 2tb. To keep your hormones balanced be sure to use in Maca in moderation (a few times a week) and if you are pregnant or nursing avoid it completely.
