View Full Version : What to do with carob powder and maca?
03-03-2008, 11:27 AM
I bought a bunch of both for super candy - I like the candy except for the maca and carob layer - I think it is the carob I dont like but im not sure. Any suggestions on things I can make that will tone the taste of the carob down?
Also is maca good in a smoothie - for example - spinach, banana, strawberries and water?

yes you can add maca to smoothies, but i wouldn't add too much maybe about a teaspoon. i was adding it to my daily smoothie but i think it was what was causing some weight gain for me. it was the only different thing that i had added into my daily routine and i gained about 6-7 pounds. i'm not saying for sure that it was the maca, but i think it was for me (i am hypothyroid, so my hormones are off some) and another girl named mindi had a thread on here about a week ago that she started to experience LOTs of bloating from adding maca. she's hypothyroid as well. anyways, i just recently took the maca out of my daily routine and am going to see if i lose the weight that i had gained while using it. sorry so long and got a little off topic there, but i just thought that i would share that just incase you have any symptoms, it could be the maca. good luck

i like to add carob to smoothies, but not green smoothies, more like banana shakes. it's not uncommon for people to not really like carob. at first, i didn't care for it, but now i love it. you can also add maca to smoothies.
i also like to make my raw chocolates with a little maca.
