 Choc Maca Smoothie

 

February is the month of love, passion and the one organ that without, we just wouldn’t be. Our Hearts are our lives; it works hard for us each and every day, so its imperative to provide it with all the love, nourishment and nutrients it needs from the inside out.

This Superfood smoothie will do just that, as it contains plenty of healing herbs, vitamins and minerals. It’s mood boosting, hormone balancing, fatigue zapping and a major libido booster, which will leave you buzzing on Valentines Day, which is THE Day of Love. This not only means love with a partner, but LOVE for your self.

There is no better way to love yourself, than by nourishing it with whole, organic foods and pure, professional supplements and herbs, vitamins to create a holistic Whole.

All you need for this Super Love Smoothie:

  •  2 ripe frozen Bananas OR if you wanted to make it berry focused as you can’t do Banana’s 2 cups of frozen raspberries or strawberries would be wonderful too (having them frozen creates a silky and smoother consistency)
  • 1 cup water or 1 cup Coconut Water
  • 1 TBSP Maca Powder*
  • 1 TBSP KickStart* (The perfect coffee replacement with Chaga mushroom, ramon nut, roasted dandelion to name a few)
  • 2 TBSP Raw Cocoa*
  • 1 TBSP Almond Butter
  • small handful of Goji Berries*

Place all the items in a high speed blender and sprinkle with the goji berries! You can add them into the blender, but they add a nice texture when left whole, and you are reminded to ‘chew’ your smoothies!

* All of these items are available at the Health Shop from Harmonic Arts, which is a beautiful Company from British Columbia

Happy Heart Month!
