Missing that morning coffee pick me up? Try this delicious beverage alternative that provides a healthy boost with superfoods, Maca and Matcha. This quick to make morning brew supports energy and mental focus when you need it most. Thanks to Chef Joy Houston, Creator of The Delicious Revolution, for this great recipe.
“The Maca FACA”
-1 teaspoon Maca Powder
-1 tablespoon Raw Cacao Powder
-1/4 teaspoon DoMatcha Green Tea Powder
-1 to 1 1/2 cup Almond Milk (easy to make your own)
-1 teaspoon raw honey
-dash of cayenne pepper
In a blender (Magic Bullet works great for this small job) mix all ingredients until well combined. Adjust the Matcha Green Tea Powder as needed to keep yourself caffeinated. For most ¼ teaspoon in combination with the Maca and raw chocolate is plenty, but there is no need to suffer through the transition. Maca is an adaptogen and will help you through the change. It is also a stimulant that helps with focus and mental clarity (and some say sexual prowess- bonus!). This beverage will give you the pick me up of coffee without taxing your system. Once you no longer physically crave the caffeine you can cut the green tea powder.
