Hemp and Maca Smoothie

New favourite smoothie! Its flavor is creamy, subtle, and rich. The variety of healthy fats are comforting on a cold, Autumn morning. Should you want to take it on-the-go, this kind of mix won't separate on you. It packs 30g of protein, and the power of maca - known to balance hormone levels, boost libido (especially in men), and improve mood. I added a number of other tonic ingredients - as a creamy smoothie is the perfect disguise for astringent powders - but that is optional.

Blend the following ingredients:
- 1 cup water or almond milk
- 1/2 very ripe, frozen banana
- 1 scoop plant-based vanilla protein powder
- 2 tbs hempseeds
- 1 tbs maca powder
- Splash of cold coffee or coffee ice cube
- Ice, to personal preference
- 1/4 avocado, add at the very end of blending
- *Optional: mucuna powder, ashwagandha, etc.
