Native to Peru, maca root has been connected to improved hormone function and energy for centuries. Cacao (which is chocolate in its rawest form), has also been linked to improved energy, as well as boosted serotonin. With the additional energy support from bananas (potassium and fiber), cashew butter (healthy fats and protein), and swiss chard (vitamins K, A and C), this smoothie is a perfect meal replacement or pre-gym snack. And the best part? It tastes like a chocolate milkshake!
