*Maca is an herbaceous plant native to the high Andean Mountains of Bolivia and Peru. It is one of the only food plants in the world able to thrive at such a high altitude. Maca, and more specifically the root of the plant, has a long history as a superfood. The maca root was prized throughout the Incan empire for its adaptogenic-like qualities that enable it to nourish and balance the body’s delicate endocrine system, and to help cope with stress. It also energizes naturally, without the jitters and crashes of caffeine, and it can aid in reproductive function, helping to balance hormones and increase fertility.

The need-a-spoon-consistency Green Smoothie

This one has garnered a bit of attention of late – it was the lucky winner of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition’s photo of the week last week and I was a very happy camper when I found out about that!  Given its popularity I thought I’d post the recipe and share the love. I appreciate this may not be everyone’s cup of tea – it is (clearly) very green and thick and it is full of salady ingredients combined with sweet ingredients that may prove an acquired taste for some. In any case it makes for a great breakfast or lunch if you’re flagging, running late, can’t be bothered to chop or all of the above. So here goes:


I made this in a standard blender.


Appx. 130g hemp milk (or other choice of milk)

1 scoop of pure hemp protein powder

2 big handfuls of english or baby spinach

A few sprigs of parsley

1/4 avocado

1 dessert spoon chia seeds (softened)

1 teaspoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon hemp seed oil

1 heaped teaspoon maca powder (optional)

1 heaped tablespoon natural yoghurt

½ teaspoon chopped fresh ginger

¼ teaspoon dried turmeric

Raw honey to taste


Throw all ingredients in the blender and blend until really smooth. Pour (or scoop!) into a glass or cup and sprinkle with whatever your heart desires. Mine is sprinkled with shelled hemp & pumpkin seeds and goji berries.

Now go grab a spoon and enjoy!
