'Maca is the ground, a nugget of gold,
A marriage elements awesome behold
Radiant sunlight, earth steady and stable
A body tuned in, strong, responsive and stable'
The Magic of Superfoods - Peter and Beryn Daniel
Maca is an incredible superfood that is beautifully grounding in our for our Root chakra. It is specifically great for women, as a hormonal support, a natural aphrodisiac and it enhances fertility.
Paired with beetroots rich red antioxidants and hibiscus mood improving qualities this is a great one for us women.
200ml warm water
Half a beetroot juiced
Half a cup frozen blueberries
A handful of dried hibiscus flowers
1 tsp baobab powder
1 tsp maca
1/2 teaspoon pea protein
1 tsp Rosehip powder
2 Tablespoons macadamia butter
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Measure out about a cup of warm water and soak your hibiscus flowers in the water while you prep your toppings. I haven't included the toppings in the ingredients list as you can really add whatever you have - I have added the chia seeds and macadamia butter but you can also add those into the smoothie. Remember that you can have fun with smoothies.
I use an Omniblend V for multiple smoothies and a Nutribullet - both of which I love for different reasons and both of which you can get on Faithful-to-nature
Put in the bananas - you can use frozen bananas and less water if you would like a more ice cream textured bowl - add in all the superfoods ingredients and blend.
To get the patterns on mine I gradually added ingredients and took some out as the colour changes. So first I did just the bananas, water and superfoods, put some aside, then I added the blueberries, put some aside and then I added the hibiscus water and beetroot juice. You can put the different colours into squeeze bottles and make swirls of colour, then run a tooth pick through the swirls.
I topped mine with dried persimmons, raw beetroot, banana, blueberries, macadamia butter, my hydrated hibiscus flowers and chia seeds. Have fun and play around!!
