Maca Almond Butter Smoothie with Ginger

Smoothies play quite a big part in my daily life and even though I do not drink them each day, a smoothie every couple of days make quite an amount of fruit/superfood powders and other smoothie ingredients consumed. For that reason (and for kitchenjulie content, of course) I have my favourite superfood powders stored safely in my cupboard, including maca root powder. I find it tastes best when mixed with banana, various kinds of nut butters, seeds, non-dairy milks. Here’s a wintery maca smoothie recipe (because GINGER!!) I hope you’ll enjoy!

 


Serves 1   |   1 cup - 250ml   |   1 tablespoon - 15ml   |   Total time: 5 mins


  • 1 banana
  • 1 date
  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon of maca root powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • juice of 5g of ginger root (using a garlic press)
  • 1/2 cup of non-dairy milk
  • 1/3 cup of water

 

Place all ingredients in a blender, squeeze out ginger juice using a garlic press, discard of ginger leftovers. Blend everything until smooth and serve immediately. Use cold water and refrigerated non-dairy milk for best taste. You can also use frozen banana if you want a thick, creamy smoothie.
