Recipe: Maca Hot Chocolate

December 30, 2017

 

Maca is a root that comes in powder form. It's a rockstar food supplement called an adaptogen that can support your body's ability to physically adapt to all kinds of stress. 

Maca helps your stress hormones - cortisol being one - adapt to your daily life: if you need more, maca will help modulate up cortisol production. If you need less, maca will modulate down. 

 

If you're feeling a little worn-down or anticipate some stress in your life, try some! Adaptogens are known to be safer food supplements out there because their function is to gently adapt to your body's needs. There is low potential that maca will compete with other nutrients or vitamins within your body to cause an imbalance. (Of course, always discuss with your doctor before beginning any dietary supplement to reduce the chances of a negative reaction.)

 

Maca has a rich toasty vanilla taste, and blends nicely into smoothies. The Maca Hot Chocolate is slightly sweet, and is a great beverage choice if you're weaning yourself off of caffeine. Try this for a mid-day treat!
