No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
So I want to get some Maca powder for more protein and super food in my diet, and as soon as I decided to get some, cant remember what your meant to use it in (sorry im new to all this!)
Is it mainly for raw deserts, or for smoothies? if anyone could suggest some recipes or uses I would really appreciate it. also what does it taste like?
thanks guys K xx
I love it in smoothies. That is my main way of getting it in. I use about a Tsp. I just found a recipe for Maca Balls I want to try as a snack. Let me see if I can find it.
Here is the recipe from Choosing Raw:
Chocolate, Walnut, and Maca Energy Bites (vegan, raw, gluten free, soy free)
Makes about 18 balls
3/4 cup walnuts
1/2 cup hemp seeds
6-8 pitted medjool dates (depends on size; 6 large or 8 smaller)
Generous pinch sea salt
1/4 cup cacao powder
3 tbsp maca powder
1. In a food processor fitted with the S blade, grind walnuts, salt, and hemp seeds till fine. Add the dates, cacao, and maca, and blend till the mixture is uniform and holds together well.
2. Shape into 18-20 balls. Store in the fridge to firm them up and to keep them fresh. They should last at least a week, unless you eat them all first!
Maca is good in warmed almond milk or in a tonic~ :) I love it in my smoothies before or after a workout!
I love maca! I use it in my smoothies with banana, almond mylk and fruit or raw cacao etc. I did try a recipe once that called for a tablespoon of maca and I just want to say...my digestive system went very haywire for a while. So I stick to 1 tsp. and nothing more for me. Maybe the recipe was a typo which I told the person who had it on their website but they never responded. Some of us are more sensitive with out tummies.
