    Thanks for the info, will be very interesting to taste your smoothie. I heard that maca powder has very strong and dominant taste, hope it will not ruin the taste of the drink. Will share my experience after i try it, Cheers!

      It does have a strong smell but I didn’t notice it at all in the smoothie. Banana hides everything! You could also start with a teaspoon instead of tablespoon. Let me know how it goes!
