This Doctor’S Medicine Cabinet: Maca

Stress-Busting Maca Elixir

This maca-based drink boosts energy and improves resilience with no caffeine, making it the perfect mid-afternoon pick me up. 



Gently heat your nut milk on the stove top with the grated ginger (or ginger tea bag if using) for 10 - 15 minutes to infuse the ginger flavour. Strain out the ginger and add the cinnamon, cacao, maca, sweetener of choice and cayenne. Blend all the ingredients in a high powered blender for 20 seconds or use an immersion frother to mix everything together. Pour into your favourite mug, tune into some relaxing music, take a few deep breaths and enjoy this delicious nervous system supportive treat.
