Instead of looking to caffeine or energy drinks to power your day, why not look to real foods for energy? This Energizing Chaga + Maca Smoothie has everything you need to keep the fire burning! And the best part is it isn’t loaded with artificial junk that will cause you to crash later.
Chaga is an incredibly powerful medicinal mushroom that you can find as a powder. In addition to being known for it’s energy-boosting properties, chaga is packed with antioxidants. It is truly a super immune booster (great for traveling!). Additionally, it is an adaptogen, meaning that it adapts to what your body needs at that moment.
Maca, native to Perú, is a root that is usually consumed as a powder. It is also an adaptogen, so it helps your body adapt to whatever the current stressors are. Maca is known as being excellent for supporting stamina and energy as well as regulating hormones.
Try this Energizing Chaga + Maca Smoothie as a way to energize your day first thing in the morning or in place of your current afternoon pick-me-up.
