Morning Om Smoothie

June 9th, 2015 · Lisa · raw, Recipes, Snacks, Sweet · Comments

Hi friends,

I’m really thrilled to be writing a post again. It has been far too long – and I have so much to share.

I’ve got an epic update coming your way next week (work, love, health, everything), but first wanted to pass along a recipe I really love, I call it the Morning Om.

It is sweet, balanced and full of all the rich nourishing ingredients you need to start your day off right.

One of the special ingredients in this smoothie is maca. If you’ve never tried maca before, it provides a bit of a malted flavour and pairs very well with chocolate. I love it because, maca is an amazing adaptogen, providing support to adrenal glands in times of stress. It is also helps to balance our hormones, making it an excellent addition to your diet if you’ve been struggling to regulate your cycle or if you’d like to increase your fertility.
