This shake is very special to us as we incorporate as many superfoods as we happen to have on hand. Some of the superfoods we use in this shake are: Raw Cacao Powder, Organic Maca Powder, Coconut oil, Macadamia Nuts, Goji Berries and Cinnamon.
Why superfoods, you might ask? I’ll keep it simple.
These all individually provide incredible nutrients for your body. When put together it is an incredible symphony of nutrients!
For a sweetener, you can use either powdered or liquid stevia or Lakanto.
WHAT ARE SUPERFOODS?
We all know that nutrient density is important. Sadly many of us are eating a diet that is loaded with calories but consume little nutrition.
Yet, broccoli would not fall in what I consider a super food. Something like Maca powder would instead be a “superfood.” Maca grows in extremely high altitudes. Say 10,000+ feet above sea level.
I keep it dairy free and use Unsweetened Coconut Milk but feel free to choose whatever dairy free milk you like such as almond milk. Just make sure it’s unsweetened and dairy free. To learn more about the dangers of dairy, Check out THIS ARTICLE. CLICK HERE!
One of the biggest health benefits of this shake is the FIBER content! To learn more about the importance of fiber in your daily diet, check out THIS ARTICLE. CLICK HERE!
Be sure to use Whole fax seeds for this recipe. (You will grind them fresh for the shake). Buying ground flax seeds could cause indigestion as the oils in flax seeds are very delicate and become rancid if ground and not consumed within a day or two. Thus, pre-ground flax seeds contain rancid oils that could make you feel sick. To learn about the health benefits of Flax Seeds, Check Out THIS ARTICLE! CLICK HERE!
Also, be sure you use Organic Raw Cacao powder. This is very important as raw cacao powder is completely different that the standard cocoa powder you buy for cooking and baking in recipes. Cocoa powder does not have the same level of antioxidant value as Raw Cacao powder due to differences in processing.

You might be wondering why we included organic coconut oil in this shake? Coconut oil is powerful for your gut in clearing out bad bacteria and killing parasites as it’s anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal and anti-microbial. It’s also a great healthy fat source for your cells. To learn more, CLICK HERE!
Last but not least, we include Raw Maca Powder, an incredible superfood, for a reason. Check out THIS ARTICLE to learn the amazing health benefits! CLICK HERE!!!
