Restorative Creamy Maca Tea

Monday, January 30, 2017


Maca is an amazing superfood with many healing properties. It's an adaptogen, which means its excellent at helping the body deal with stress, notably by reducing physical symptoms of anxiety. It also helps reduce depression, heighten mental clarity, and increase energy. Unlike coffee though, this energy boost doesn't come from caffeine and doesn't stress your adrenals, so no jitters, nerves, or 3 pm crashes. It's become one of my favorite additions to the morning.
Below is a simple recipe for the maca "tea" I interchange with my daily hot chocolates. It's quite yummy, and all of the spices are included with healthy alkalizing and mood heightening intentions. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1/2 c. almond milk
1/2 c. boiling water
2 heaping tsp. peruvian maca powder
shake of turmeric, cardamom, black pepper, and cinnamon

Add ingredients to a blender or protein shaker & blend/mix until frothy and smooth.

    1. Maybe at Whole Foods, but not your average supermarket. I would suggest buying it on Amazon. That's where I get it :) There are bags for under 10 dollars

  4. First of all, yaaaas girl, crack out the posts! I haven't checked this blog in a bit and I was pleasantly surprised to find so much new content today! Secondly, I think it's important to note that you should use gelatinized (cooked) maca. Raw maca flour is good to use in cooking but can upset your digestive system if consumed as a smoothie/tea supplement...the cooked stuff is fine because the starches and soluble fibers have been broken down!
