Adaptogens are herbal allies that help the human body deal with stressors. Sounds good, right?! One renowned adaptogen is Maca, an ancient superfood from Peru that supports energy, endurance, and recovery.* Check out New Chapter’s easy-to-use Maca Booster Powder that’s unlocked through the power of fermentation.
This smoothie recipe delivers energy and endurance support with Maca, then kicks it up with the richness of Nature’s antioxidant, cocoa. Perfect for before or after a workout—or anytime you want a sweet, healthy treat. If you want to get extra-chocolatey, add a scoop of chocolate Fuel & Replenish™ protein powder. (New Chapter’s Plant Protein+ is soy free, vegan, and made with clinically studied digestive enzymes for better absorption.)
