Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Maca Theme Week.

I used this Maca Boost powder from Gaia Herbs (Brevard, NC) in a blueberry, strawberry, kale and coconut milk smoothie. It doesn't have to be this complicated. A bit of this powder in your chocolate milkshake or simple chocolate smoothie would probably be just fine as well.

This organic, unsweetened Maca Boost powder contained cacao, Peruvian maca root, ginger and rhodiola*.

*Golden Root or Rhodiola rosea is a flowering plant that grows in the Arctic and colder regions of Europe and Russia that is used by some as a "tonic herb."
