Creamy blended bananas, vanilla and peanut butter go into this rich butterscotchy tasting maca smoothie.
Maca is one of those healthy foods that I'm hooked on for taste alone. I've said before that I don't really believe in superfoods, at least as most people understand them, but I do believe in healthy foods. I'm glad this stuff is healthy, because it's delicious. It has a slightly sweet, malty, butterscotchy flavor, hence the title of the post. It goes awesome with banana and peanut butter, so I went and thew both of those things in here. This is one of those smoothies that tastes like a milkshake to me, but is, quite amazingly, void of dairy or refined sugar.
Maca's apparent health benefits include being an energizer and hormonal balancer. I won't go on much about that though, as this blog is about recipes and you can get your nutritional advice elsewhere. Suffice it to say this is healthy and tasty. Enjoy!

Malty butterscotch flavor? I am so there...how have I not tried maca before?! Can't wait to pick some up and give your recipe a whirl! Yum!

Maca is one of my faves! I put a tsp of it in any creamy smoothie I'm making, but have not tried this combo before. Now it's in the books for tomorrow morning. Yum!
