Malted Chaga Chocolate Smoothie with Maca for Hormonal Balance

Malted Chaga Chocolate Smoothie with Maca for Hormonal Balance

Of late this smoothie has been my go-to to get through the afternoon slump.  It’s how I break my fast for lunch, and carries me through my post homeschool run so I can tackle a bit of work with a fully functional brain.   I love it… obviously you can take out the supplemental boosters, but they are my superfoods that hit all my energy needs and help me thrive with Hashimoto’s rather than just survive.

This smoothie is made with bone broth protein and is full of medicinal mushrooms + an extra boost of chaga for earthy flavor, red maca for women’s energy & libido and that malted milk ball flavor you couldn’t quite put your finger on, black tahini for seed cycling (you can alternate with sprouted pumpkin seeds for the follicular phase), healthy fats and probiotics. Bone broth protein is incredibly gut healing but if you are vegan you can sub with a clean plant protein like Ancient Nutrition’s or pea protein.  My favorite pea protein is Q Sciences EQ Protein available in Chocolate and Vanilla here.

Let me know what you think!  My husband doesn’t love the malted flavor unless it’s in cookies but adding a bit more swiss water cold brew can cover it.
