Raspberry, Cacao, and Maca Smoothie
Maca is reputed to boost energy but the mechanism of action is unknown. Raspberries are a source of vitamin C, complex carbohydrates and dietary fiber, and they have a low glycemic index which means they won’t spike your blood sugar and send you into a crash. Instead, they’ll keep you steady and strong.

- 1 Teaspoon raw maca powder
- 1 Teaspoon vanilla
- 1 Teaspoon lucuma powder
- ½ Teaspoon cinnamon
Add all ingredients to blender and blend till smooth. This smoothie tastes like a dessert but energizes like a balanced breakfast.
