Green Cinnamon Maca Madness

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz swiss chard
  • 1/2 avocado - pitted, peeled
  • 1 banana - peeled
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tsp maca root powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

In addition to being full of vitamins minerals that are vital to healthy skin (vitamins C, E and essential fatty acids), maca root is also considered an “adaptogen,” which means that it works with our bodies to help us feel cool, calm and collected during stressful situations. Cinnamon and cacao are great anti-inflammatories, and since inflammation in the body is one of the biggest reasons for breakouts and blemishes, getting a daily dose of anti-inflammatory foods is the perfect natural way to create a clear complexion. The healthy fat from half an avocado, magnesium from a banana, and vitamin K from swiss chard don’t hurt either!

Mad for maca root? Try our Coconut Almond Macaroon smoothie, or our Sunflower Maca smoothie.
