Berry Maca Smoothie from the Health, Happiness, Paleo E-book

Posted on May 06, 2015 by Alyssa Cassidy

At Paleo FX 2015 we were so excited to meet two awesome paleo bloggers, Chelsea and Leslie, aka The Paleo Cavewoman, and The Whole Life Balance. These two have been working tirelessly to create a brand new e-book "Health, Happiness, Paleo". Inside, they have over 30 new recipes for anyone looking for delicious new meal ideas on their paleo journey. 

These (awesome) ladies have allowed us to share a recipe from their new e-book here on the Bare Blog today. We know summer is on the horizon (let's face it, here in Texas, it's already arrived) and nothing is better than an ice cold smoothie on those hot days. This berry maca smoothie is great for a treat, but also packed with endurance boosting maca root, which is said to help with energy and even libido (yowza!) Maca also:

  1. Contains an abundance of unique plant sterols (like beta-sitasterol) that can assist in boosting hormone health in both men and women. 
  2. Is a world-class adaptogen (just like Ginseng), which means it naturally helps your body adapt and improve its response to stress.
  3. Is filled with compounds called “Madamides” and “Macaenes” that are believed to be responsible for its powerful aphrodisiac properties. 

And unlike most herbs, Maca is incredibly easy to digest and assimilate—which means that regardless of your age, chances are high you’ll feel the benefits of Maca. We love any excuse to use maca so we jumped on the opportunity to feature this recipe.

Check out the recipe below, and head over to their blogs for tons more like this- and help support them by getting a copy of their e-book, here:
