I had never tried maca powder before tasting Viva Lab’s Organic Maca Powder. I add a tablespoon in my chocolate smoothies, and the chocolate helps balance out the strong maca taste. While maca is not the best tasting thing in the world, it is amazing how many benefits it boasts. The package says it helps energy and fatigue, and after I have my smoothie, I do feel less fatigue overall.
I made the mistake of using a heaping tablespoon (so closer to 2 tablespoons) and not enough Stevia in my first smoothie, and it was hard to get down. The taste isn’t horrible, just not my favorite. Since I am pregnant now, I have some issues with my taste buds. Adding less maca and more sweetener definitely helped!
I know that you can mix maca powder into your coffee, as well. However, many have suggested that it tastes better in cold drinks, such as blended smoothies. Others have said that peanut butter makes the taste easier to down too. I will stick with that and after my little one comes, I plan on adding maca powder to lactation cookies for hormone help.
If you still have issues with the taste, try putting the powder into pills to enjoy all the amazing health benefits, such as radiant skin, balanced hormones, and increased energy.
I love the Viva Labs Organic Maca Powder because it is one of the only maca powders to be gelatinized for better absorption.
I was given this product by the company in exchange for an honest review. I will definitely purchase this in the future!
