Shake up your shakes.
Your smoothie routine is getting a little stale. You've got the green veggie routine mastered, but after months of drinking two shakes a day, you could use something to mix it up. Vega, a plant-based nutrition company, creates supplements and other nutrition for endurance athletes, and its Maca Powder can easily be added to any flavor of smoothie when you want to try something different.
Vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, kosher-friendly, and organic, Vega's Maca Powder has been likened to ginseng for its abilities to invigorate and increase energy levels when taken as a supplement. It also contains antioxidants and vitamin B12 and is claimed to promote overall feelings of well-being.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I like this from Vega! Just like any other brand no additives!
LOVE my Vega
LOVE my Vega products! This maca is fantastic. Vega uses a three type maca blend, instead of just one, so this one is more balancing than some other forms. It's also gelatanized, which just means it's been heated at low temps to still preserve nutrients, but is much easier to digest and is lower in starch. I use 1 tbsp. a day to help with hormones and energy- tastes great!
When I need a quick energy/mood boost, I find that a serving of maca in a smoothie (or, in a pinch, just mixed in a glass of water) perks me up immediately. And it gives me an almost unexplained natural high, a sort of sense that all is okay in the world. I know that sounds airy-fairy, but I'm dead serious. Maca has a strong flavor, and some other brands tend to have an off-putting taste to me. But the Vega Maca has never disappointed. I especially love it mixed into chocolate smoothies.
