This Hemp & Maca Vegan Smoothie Bowl makes an excellent, nutrition packed breakfast. If you have a stressful morning ahead, this recipe will help you to keep a balanced and calm approach. One of the chief ingredients is the Superfood Maca, a powerful adaptogen that will nourish the endocrine system and is full of brain boosting B vitamins. A hefty dose of high quality plant protein comes from the Hemp Protein Powder, guaranteed to keep you full until lunchtime. 

  • Blender
  • Kitchen scales
  • Teaspoon


  1. First add your Almond Milk into the Blender
  2. Then slice up your Banana and Strawberries and Spinach leaves and add them also.
  3. On top of your heap of fruit and leaves scoop in your sugar free Nut Butter
  4. Time for the powders. Next spoon in the Hemp Protein Powder, Maca Powder and Baobab Powder.
  5.  Blend. 
  6. Top with your favourite fruits & seeds!

This recipe can be made with all kinds of different Superfood powders which can be substituted for the Maca and Baobab Powder. Because of the thick nature of this smoothie you might like to add some water or more Almond Milk to make it easier to drink.


To say this smoothie is packed with protein would be an understatement! Firstly the Hemp Protein Powder provides over 55% of highly digestible, complete plant based protein - high protein meals and smoothies tend to keep you feeling fuller for longer - not only will you have the energy to keep you going until lunch, it can also prevent a mid-morning crash. This is also helped along by the inclusion of the nut butter, whichever one you choose to use will provide you with a good dollop of essential fatty acids such as omega 3. Getting enough "good" fat is essential to the absorption of fat soluble vitamins, will keep your blood sugar stable and is vital to brain health. Nut butters are also extremely mineral rich with brain boosting nutrients such as zinc and B vitamins, perfect to keep your mind sharp and focused.

The inclusion of maca not only boosts the mineral and vitamin content but is also known as an "adaptogen", adaptogens are a unique group of herbal ingredients which help your body adjust to extreme circumstances and, along with the B vitamins, can help you to cope with stress.

All in all, this smoothie will boost your energy levels, leave you satiated, keep you focussed and combat stress!
