Vitasave's Superfood Smoothies Up Close - Maca Monkey

In September of last year, Vitasave.ca went offline to bring the same great products, service and smiles to the high street. The first Vitasave.ca brick and mortar store is nestled in the heart of North Vancouver, BC and in addition to top quality products, low prices and awesome health educators, there are eight, delicious and highly nutritious superfood smoothies to keep you nourished and glowing by the glassful.

What are superfoods? Superfoods are nutrient dense foods. This simply refers to the ratio of macronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phyto-chemicals) per calorie. Superfoods provide the body with endless benefits, so what's the quickest and easiest way to consume them? In one of our deliciously wholesome, 100% organic, plant based superfood smoothies available from our rocking, in store smoothie bar!

Maca Monkey

This smoothie is packed with protein and endurance promoting ingredients. Bananas are low in fat, high in dietary fibre and an easily digestible carbohydrate source, perfect for a pre and post workout nutrition. Together with Peanut butter, both provide a generous source of potassium, not to mention a great flavour combination! Peanut butter also provides a good dose of heart healthy monosaturated fat, which keeps you feeling satisfied. The sprouted chocolate protein used in this smoothie is made from 5 types of non-GMO sprouted grains and seeds and contains 9 essential and non-essential amino acids. It provides 17g of organic, plant based protein with a decadant chocolatey flavour. There are 3 superfoods in this smoothie; Maca root powder, Hemp hearts and Cacao nibs. Maca root powder is a powerful adaptogen that helps to balance hormones in both men and women. It also works to increase energy and stamina, improve sexual function and boost memory and focus. The combination of essential fatty acids, complex carbohydrates and protein that make up hemp hearts provide long-lasting energy and promote cellular recovery and development. Cocao nibs are one of the highest sources of antioxidants and just a one ounce serving provides 64mg of magnesium, making it one of the best dietary sources. Magnesium promotes protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function and helps to control blood glucose levels. The best part is, they give this smoothie a scrumptious chocolatey, chewy texture, all the way to the end!
