Mixed Berry Maca Protein Shake

By: Michael DeSanti

With Father’s Day on Sunday, why don’t you serve him something that will keep him healthy, strong and happy on his big day? The plant based protein in this smoothie is easily absorbed by the body while the berries provide high quality antioxidants. The coconut oil is great for cardiovascular health and adds a quality fat to an early morning smoothie. Chia seeds are a great source of fiber and omega 3 fats while the maca powder helps balance hormones and is great for prostate health.
