For Valentine’s Day this year we created a Love Potion smoothie to share with someone special. Along with the natural goodness of apple, carrot, celery and ginger we have used our coconut water, beetroot, goji, and maca powders.
Did you know there are three different types of maca? We chose to use red maca as it contains high values of various phytochemicals such as alkaloids, cardiotonic glycosides, glucosinolates, saponins, and tannins which support hormonal health.
Organic Gelatinised Red Maca Root powder coming soon to Matakana SuperFoods....watch this space!
