I have in my hands the most delicious recipe for an amazing pre or post-workout shake. This smoothie works great for a quick burst of long lasting energy, combining the powerful health benefits of superfoods with carbohydrates and protein. The maca helps to temper and balance out your adrenals, the bananas are an excellent source of quickly digestible carbohydrates (40-60 minutes), the lucuma powder gives the shake a nice caramel flavor, and the almond milk makes it super creamy and smooth. Plus, the cinnamon aids in digestion and gives it a nice little send off. What could be better?
About a pint depending on how much liquid you use!
This is what I just had for breakfast, it was amazing! It was meant to be a smoothie but came out with more of a cakemixey texture. More liquid would probably make it more smoothie like. Also, you could probably use less liquid and dehydrate it into muffin/cookie type things.

These raw coconut marble cake bites are a great indulgent healthy treat for any raw fooder craving a sweet. They have a beautiful presentation so are great for parties where you want to wow your guests. Not only that there healthy and the ingredients are based around superfoods.
This is my super yummy answer to some popular seed and nut bars. Sweet and nutty and lots of flavor! Great as a quick breakfast, an afternoon snack, a post workout kick, and pretty much anytime you need a little something! I added raw Maca powder because of its stress reducing, stamina and (libido) busting, and fatigue fighting powers. Chia seed is great for its ability to energize, not to mention its rich in omega fatty acids AND a great source of fiber in general.
