Sunflower Maca

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas - peeled

  • 2 tbsp coconut cream
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

A member of the cruciferous family (like broccoli and cabbage), maca root is most notably grown in Peru. In addition to having eight essential amino acids, calcium, magnesium and iron, maca is also known as an “adaptogen,” which is a category of certain herbs and plants that help our bodies adapt during stressful situations. Sunflower seed butter is a great alternative for those who are sensitive to nuts, and when you combine it with antioxidant-rich cacao and tropical coconut cream cream, you get a decadent, mineral-rich milkshake. Just the sort of thing you’d be sipping on vacation!
