Maca Smoothie- Superfood time

Maca is a plant native to Peru. 
The Latin scientifically name is Lepidium meyenii, also known as Peruvian ginseng.

Maca taste like- earthy and nutty, the odour similar to butterscotch.

It goes great with sweet fruits.

This is the reason that I combine it with apple and banana to keep this richness and sweet flavour.

I see food as medicine. The food does not only exist for us to feel full and happy, but it is also the fuel to our body.

When you know what are the ingredients in your food, then, you can choose, the ones that are the best for you.
