Maca root is a superfood found high in the Peruvian Andes in southern Peru. It is cultivated under (and prefers) the harshest of circumstances: rocky landscapes, intense winds and drastic temperature fluctuations. It’s a tough little root. Before it is ground up, maca looks like a cross between a head of garlic and a golden beet. It is known for having a healthy dose of Vitamin B1 and B2 and may even increase your libido.

Going cuckoo for cacao? Try these chocolaty treats: The Tahini Banana Split Smoothie or The Spicy Chocolate Volcano Smoothie.
