Organic Maca Powder

About

Maca, otherwise known as Peruvian ginseng, is a root vegetable from the same plant family as turnips, radishes and broccoli. For centuries, maca has been used as both food and medicine in South America. Incan warriors would consume maca before long journeys and battles to enhance their strength and endurance. In more recent times, athletes are confirming what history has revealed about this incredible superfood. As an energy booster, maca is celebrated for providing stamina and mental clarity. It can also help to regulate natural hormone levels in the body.

Uses

Maca powder is added to smoothies for a superfood boost of energy and vitality, like in this delicious Salted Caramel Smoothie, a sweet and creamy treat for breakfast or a new twist on your post-workout smoothie. Maca is also a wonderful inclusion in homemade hot beverages, like this Superfood Hot Chocolate, a great morning energiser as a substitute for coffee. Sprinkle maca powder over breakfast bowls of granola, muesli, porridge or yoghurt with fresh fruit. This Buckwheat Bircher is a great example of a protein and superfood-packed breakfast food that will keep you full until lunchtime. Similarly, this Fermented Bircher Porridge includes maca and other superfoods to provide maximum nutrition in your breakfast. Maca powder can be used in raw and baked goods, including bliss balls, energy bars, muffins, loaves, cakes and slices. It adds a superfood boost without significantly changing the flavour profile of recipes, therefore can be used in both sweet and savoury.
