Maca powder, which has so many notable health benefits, has a caramel-y flavor that blends well into smoothies of all sorts. In this Strawberry-Vanilla Maca Smoothie recipe, maca powder teams well with the strawberry, banana, and vanilla flavors. If you’re new to maca, use the lesser quantity; if you’ve been using it for a while, allow for 2 teaspoons per serving. This makes about two 12-ounce servings. Photos by
