Okay, I know you didn’t think I would give you a recipe without some kind of science.. did you?

Did you know that maca is a hormone balancing root that beens used for thousands of years? It has been used in Peru for a looongggg time for things like energy, hormone balance, healthy thyroid function, sexual functioning and PMS. Hollah atcha girl. Remember, I know what it’s like to deal with PMS and it’s nowhere near fun. Luckily, by changing my diet and making lifestyle changes, I don’t experience it anymore. It’s possible! Here are more details about the hormonal struggles I personally went through.

Caffeine free & dairy free maca latte.

It’s important to get gelatinized maca because it’s easier to digest. Trust me, we need all the help we can get with digestion in today’s toxic environments. The maca goes through a gelatinization process which separates the root from the starch. Subsequently, this makes it more bioavailable and concentrated in the root so, look for gelatinized. Who wants to drink a creamy dairy free maca latte now?

In this study, Maca significantly reduced levels of glucocorticosteroidal hormones like cortisol. Elevated cortisol (elevated stress) leads to inflammation and since chronic inflammation is at the root of all disease, we want to avoid it at all costs!

Sex… wait, what?

Maca is also known to be an aphrodisiac = boosts the mood, if you know what I’m saying. Since it’s native to the high Andes of Peru, it’s a pretty beastly plant. The way plants work is like this:

  • they get their seed sown
  • the water gets it going
  • the rougher the terrain, the tougher the plant
  • the tougher the plant, the more powerful it is to us
  • as a result, maca is so so powerful
  • In other words, God is amazing. Who thinks of this stuff, seriously?!

I mean, who wouldn’t want to spice up their marriage? This root is literally a stress buster and libido enhancer. What could be better? Alright alright, let’s get blending this dairy free maca latte.

3 minutes & 5 ingredients, that's all it takes to make this dairy free maca latte.

After two months of working with Ashlee, we got pregnant. She's kind, diligent and truly invested in my family and health. We tried for over a year to get pregnant with no luck after our first baby. I definitely recommend!

My back pain literally left, my puffy arms toned up and now I'm able to chase my baby boy around. HOLY CRAP, I was hesitant to implement the changes Ashlee always talked about on her Instagram stories (which led me to work 1:1 with her). Thank you Ashlee, from the bottom of my heart.
