If you are looking for a great caffeine substitute that still packs an energy punch, try adding some maca. Maca comes in a powder form and has a malty flavor. I use it in smoothies, desserts and hot drinks like the one above.
Golden Mean Cafe makes a very tasty roasted maca, cinnamon, cacao, almond or coconut milk latte. Its delicious! I always feel amp’d after having one.
Maca (Lepidium Meyenii or Peruvian Ginseng) is an herbaceous biennial plant from the crucifer family, a native to the high Andes of Peru.
Maca is rich in vitamins ( B, C and E), zinc, iron, calcium, amino acids and magnesium.
It’s a powerful libido booster for men and women and can provide aid in sensitive issues for women like; menstrual cramps, menopause, mood swings and acne.
My personal favorite benefit is the energy increase! It doesn’t leave me feeling jittery like caffeine because it’s not! It’s all natural baby.
Righteously Raw has a delicious Maca and Cacao organic raw chocolate bar that is heavenly. Talk about a power combo! Word of advice: not to be eaten before bed.
