    looks awesome! =) can u tell me how long to freeze those bananas??

    Its a nutrient-dense powdered form of the maca root. Pricey but full of antioxidants and nutrients, it can be found at natural grocery stores or online. You can omit it with just as good results. This recipe is yummy with cinnamon as well!

    It's a powder found in many natural grocery stores and health stores that is full of nutrients. It's totally optional in this recipe; or use cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder instead.

    Hi! I purchased it at the health food store near me (stores like Whole Foods, Jimbo's etc, should have it) or you can buy brands like Navitas Naturals or Healthworks online from sites like Amazon.com
