April 23, 2012 Get ready for Cinco de Mayo with a frozen Berry Green Mohito
Usually I run around town with my green drink in tow and I encounter a lot of strange stares and a lot of questions. When I explain how yummy the drink is and how good it is for you I get asked for recipes all the time.
My latest and greatest recipe is the Frozen Green Berry Mohito made with fresh mint from my garden.. Anyone can grow mint because it basically takes care of itself when planted and grows like crazy. Buy a mint plant from your local nursery or even local supermarket.
Green Berry Mohito
**This recipe can be used with or without alcohol**
2 cups of fresh spinach
2 sweet red apples (any variety available)
1 tsp honey (optional)
2 cups water
3/4 cup frozen strawberries
3/4 cup frozen red rasberries
a handful of fresh mint
2 tsp of raw maca powder (optional)
Why is Maca Powder so special?
Because Maca Powder is an adaptogen it is able to identify ‘hotspots’ of stress or weakness in the body and focus its healing properties on assisting these areas.
This is a nutrient packed food that contains an array of minerals, essential amino acids, vitamins and enzymes.
Maca Powder also contains over 55 different active phytochemicals including hormonal precursors and sterols. These phytochemicals are part of the reason why people taking raw Maca Powder experience increased energy levels and even feel happier.
Maca Powder Benefits
Maca Powder is able to contribute to overall well-being and provide the body with over 20 different fatty acids, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin B12 and B1 & B2, vitamin C as well as many other vitamins and minerals.
It can support the nervous system, digestive system, reproductive system and help to reduce adrenal stress to bring our bodies back in to balance.
Its been well publicised that Maca Powder can help to improve libido and fertility as well as stamina!
Its also used by bodybuilders who want a natural alternative to anabolic steroids due to the high levels of naturally occurring plant sterols.
raw maca can be bought at www.livesuperfoods.com
I use the health master by Montel Williams. http://www.myhealthmaster.com/ I have had this emulsifier for over 2 years and if you have a problem within one year they replace it for FREE.. You can make everything and anything in this blender due to the strong motor. The reason I like this blender better than a juicer is because it keeps all the fiber in!
