How to Use Maca: Blueberry Maca Smoothie

Everyone is so excited about Green Smoothies! Even though I live in the tropics where it’s always smoothie weather, I am just learning to be excited about green smoothies. This morning seemed a perfect time to begin a new little tradition, which I’ve named Smoothie Sunday. Most weekdays I can’t be bothered with extra dishes, but today is a good little nesting day at home, and I decided to go for it!

For those of you not yet on the Green Smoothie kick, here’s the basics: choose a liquid, choose a fruit, and choose a green. Blend and enjoy! It’s pretty simple, but the results are pretty great. Not only do you get a good serving or two of fruits, you can ‘sneak’ in some of your daily greens.

This smoothie recipe is actually inspired by my coworker, though I made a few tweaks. I added some chia seeds for protein, moringa powder for vitamins, and chlorella for everything. It was a dark, creamy concoction that was delicious with my cool glass straw. I also tossed on some No-Bake Granola to make it a more substantial snack! Maca is a great energy boosting supplement, and I love using it in smoothies and elsewhere. If you’ve wondered how to use maca, this is it!
