1 cup of The Andes Pumpkin Seed Cashew Mylk

1 teaspoon of Maca
1 teaspoon of Hemp Hearts
1 tablespoon of Cacao
3-4 ice cubes
A handful of coconut flakes
Just put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until you get a smooth consistency. Top you smoothie with a sliced banana and some coconut flakes and enjoy!
To make your own nut butter it takes about 10-20 minutes depending on the type of nut you're using, I like to use cashews and macadamia nuts as they break down a bit easier and create a really creamy and delicious nut butter!
Total Time: 10 minutes

1/2 cup of macadamia nuts
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
