PEACHES & "CREAM" SMOOTHIE

My chicklets adore peaches, and we go through baskets of them during peach season!

This shake is loaded with all the goods — veggies, fiber, healthy fats, protein and adaptogens, too.  Yet it is still simple to make and tastes as beautiful as it looks.

Maca is a great superfood booster and its slightly earthy, butterscotch taste blends well with peach.  In addition to providing extra vitamins and minerals, maca is recognized as a herbal "adaptogen". This means it helps the body to regulate cortisol levels and deal with stress.  It is believed to help to relieve anxiety while boosting mood, energy, concentration, and even libido.

For 2 servings, blend together until smooth:

  • 2 cups diced fresh peaches

  • 1 cup canned organic coconut milk or nondairy milk of choice

  • 1/2 to 1 cup steamed-then-frozen cauliflower

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp gelatinized maca powder (optional)

  • 1 scoop Nuzest Clean Lean natural or vanilla protein (use code “DRTARA” for discount)
