Raw Vegan Chocolate Maca Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Maca, a South American turnip-like root vegetable, is a member of the cruciferous family, along with kale, broccoli and cabbage. It is known as an adaptogen and is one of the most popular superfoods, boasting positive effects on energy levels and stamina, and on mood, memory and mental focus. Maca is also known to help balance hormones, increase fertility in both men and women, and boost the immune system. This chocolate smoothie bowl is a delicious way to include superhero maca into your diet and enjoy its numerous health benefits. Using frozen banana will give you a thicker, creamier smoothie, but fresh banana will work just fine too.

Method

  • Start by making the coconut milk : Put the desiccated coconut along with the water in your blender and blend until smooth. Strain the milk through a cheese cloth or a very fine sieve. Rinse the blender jug and return the strained coconut milk to the jug.
  • If you can, roughly break the bananas into a few chunks using your hands, and freeze beforehand.
  • Add the banana, cacao powder, protein powder and maca powder and blend until smooth.
  • Pour the smoothie into a pretty bowl, add toppings of your choice (such as a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds, cacao nibs  and bee pollen), and enjoy with a spoon.
