Ladies’ Smoothie: Raspberry Maca Hormone-Balancing Smoothie

Raspberry + maca is a pretty great combination – it tastes fruity and fresh, especially if you use frozen raspberries, and the nut butter makes it so creamy, though you can omit if you’re allergic to nuts or simply prefer a thinner smoothie. This smoothie is quick and easy to make, and gives you a welcome boost of energy at any time of day.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (or a handful of) frozen raspberries
  • 250ml (1 cup) almond milk
  • 1 tsp maca powder
  • 1 tsp peanut or almond butter
  • 1 tbsp hemp hearts (optional)

Instructions

  1. Blend all till smooth.
  2. If you like a thinner smoothie, add more almond milk.
  3. Enjoy!

Notes

If you’re unsure about maca, try 1 tsp to start with, but if you already love this flavour feel free to up the dose to 2 tsp.
