Maca Bowls

This is what we are eating for desert at the moment - And if there is any left over in the back of the fridge (read I hid some from my family) then I have a small bowl for breakfast.
It is cool and smooth with a little bit of chia texture. I find it comforting and sweet (cause we don't eat refined sugars and our taste buds have adjusted) - yay. small victories right?


Maca is great for helping balance your hormones. It also helps with training if you are into exercise (not me) . When adding I suggest you start with 1 teaspoon of maca, blend the dessert and then taste before adding more. As maca is one of those things that tastes great and if you add to much it just tastes overwhelming and strong and really not great - think of a time you added way to much salt and nothing you did could rid of the taste? = nasty! So baby steps.

Taste and add more Macca and more banana if its not sweet enough. More liquid if its to thick!
