Sexytown Maca and Chia Chocolate Pudding

What’s this Maca stuff?  Maca powder comes from the maca root.  Maca root comes from high in the Puruvian Andes.  It has a long history of medicinal use and you’ll soon find out why.  This herb is off the hook:

  1. Vitamins and Energy:  Maca is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids.  The high B vitamin profile means that maca energizes.  Plant based athletes are all about it.
  2. Sexual Function:  It balances hormones in both men and women, increases LIBIDO and endurance (oh Heeeyyyyyyy), and has be shown to support healthy fertility.
  3. Woman’s Mood:  Because of the hormone balancing, maca alleviates menstrual symptoms and cramps as well as helping with menopause symptoms.
  4. Skin:  It is also used to clear up acne.  I mean, this makes total sense as it is a hormone balancer!

So, Maca is good for you. How the heck do you use it?  Well, today I’m going to share a pudding recipe with you but you can also add it to smoothies, oatmeal, homemade energy bars, sky is the limit my dears.
