Macashake In The Morning

The Goods Macashake

Our macashake is full of energy packed ingredients and lots of antioxidants, omega 3s and protein naturally. It might even make you a slight bit randy, rumor has it maca was Viking viagra… so be ready!


2 tbsp chia seeds
2 cups water
1 tbsp maca
1 tbsp cacao
2 tbsp sweetener – i.e. xylitol, coconut sugar, honey
1/2 tbsp vanilla powder
1 tsp cinnamon
dash ginger or cayenne
Frozen fruit – i.e. pint strawberries or blueberries, banana and add ice if needed

Put all ingredients in blender except frozen goods, blend on lowest setting to mix only and let sit for 15 minutes (so chia can soak) before blending on high speed until smooth. While on high add all frozen ingredients until desired consistency reached or mixture freezes.

This is a great treat to take with you to work in a thermos, or for an outing on a sunny day. It also makes super tricky healthy popsicles for kids with a few alterations. The only reason I suggest taking out the cacao and maca for the kiddies is because they’re high energy and most little ones don’t need anymore of that!

Kid Pops

2 tbsp chia seeds (OR 1/4 cup raw nuts like almonds, macadamia, pine)
2 cups water
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
dash ginger
Frozen fruit – i.e. pint strawberries or blueberries, banana add ice as needed

Follow same directions above, then fill popsicle molds or ice cube trays and freeze!

And it’s good for you!
