Maca Coffee Cacao Super Smoothie


Looking for a little pick me up in the morning or post-workout? Our maca coffee cacao super smoothie might be the perfect solution! It’s energy-boosting and packed full of nutritional benefits.


Maca Health Benefits:

Maca root originates in the Peruvian Andes and is a true nutritional powerhouse


  • Boosts stamina 
  • Reduces stress 
  • Improves fertility and libido 
  • Regulates hormones 
  • Increases energy levels 

There are three different types of maca: red, yellow, and black, each with its own unique set of health benefits. Just pick one to add to your smoothie based on your gender and health goals!

Cacao Health Benefits:

Cacao, native to the Amazon Basin, is credited as the superfood of all superfoods. Its extensive list of medicinal benefits makes it an excellent addition to smoothies. 


  • Contains more calcium than cow’s milk 
  • Highest plant-based source of iron
  • Lowers risk of heart disease 
  • Reduces stress and improves mood
  • Great source of antioxidants 


Are Cacao and Cocoa The Same Thing?

No! While both come from the same plant, cacao is closer to the pure form of chocolate, and cocoa has been processed with high heat. This process destroys its natural nutritional properties. Cocoa is often found in store-bought products and combined with sugars, oils, and milk fat. So when looking to cook with cocoa, make sure to buy it with no additives.
