If you know me, you know, I am not a morning person.  As hard as I try, and as much as I want to be, it’s nearly impossible.

I will try anything to get me going in the morning.  That includes adding a new (to me) supplement into my daily routine, Sol Raiz Organics Maca.  Maca is a Peruvian superfood that comes from a root (that looks similar to a radish) and has a slightly earthy yet nutty flavor.

Because maca provides a good source of natural energy, I’ve been playing around adding it to anything I might encounter in the morning.  So far, it’s been a great addition to oatmeal, iced coffee, and smoothies.

I think this shake is perfect for breakfast or whenever you might need a little boost of energy.  Plus, the flavors are mild and complimentary so it’s a subtle way to introduce maca into your diet!

Have you ever tried maca before?
My first experience was a Whole Foods “Mighty Maca Malt” from their smoothie bar.
