Vanilla Maca Cold Brew Smoothie (For Hormone Balance)

Vanilla Maca Cold Brew Smoothie (For Hormone Balance)

It’s been a long long while since I posted a smoothie recipe… mostly because this is the one I crave and make 90% of the time.  Well… maybe 99% of the time.

One thing that is quite a problem after having a baby is that my hormones are all over the place again and I’m tired from being up with a baby who is teething… so having some hormonal support (especially to get one in the seggsy mood lol) is, I must say… important.

My favorite nutritional product for hormone balance, fertility & libido… and a plethora of other benefits like energy, boosting mood, and managing blood pressure and perimenopause and menopause symptoms… is gelatinized red maca.  Now, I have a lot of really high quality ingredients and smoothie boosters in my Fullscript Pracitioner Dispensary, which is 20% off all the time, but for maca my favorite is from The Maca Team.  In fact, when I order I usually stock up on the biggest sized bags of Gelatinized Premium Red Maca.  I also grab some black maca because it’s better for the hubs and is also great for muscle building and fighting off viruses… what?? Yes.  I like the blue spirulina blend and trio blends as well.


Okay… so this smoothie I sometimes make with cold brew and a scoop of ground clean Swiss water decaf coffee, sometimes just with the ground coffee and sometimes just with the cold brew… but I love the Designs for Sport Vanilla Bone Broth protein for it and I boost it with camu camu for vitamin C, sometimes some adaptogen blends but always with the Maca, which is an adaptogen in its own right.


Blend it up with a high powered blender like this one that I have, and enjoy!


Try it out and let me know what you think or what you add to it!

My fave, go-to hormone balancing smoothie
Prep Time 5 mins
Course Breakfast, Lunch
Cuisine keto, paleo
Servings 1


  • High Powered blender


  • 1 Cup Ice cubes
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1-2 Tbsp Gelatinized Premium Red Maca Black, for men or Trio Blend for both/muscle building
  • 1 Tsp camu camu
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein I like Bone Broth Protein but certain Vegan ones are good, like Ancient Nutrition
  • 1-2 Cups filtered water I have an AquaTru

Optional Boosters

  • 1 Tbsp sprouted pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds or tahini
  • 3 Brazil nuts for selenium/ thyroid support
  • 2 Tbsp coconut kefir or 1/4 cup any type of yogurt you like that is not full of crap like gums, sugar and natural or artificial flavorings. check the ingredients. Natural flavorings are often either unnatural or can be things like beaver butt excretion because it contains hormones that cause addiction. Or Beetle wings. So that’s fun.
  • 1 Tsp Adaptogen blend with Ashwaganda to chill out and offset coffee
