We can’t recommend our maca coffee substitute, The Morning Motivator, enough. It might be difficult to imagine starting your day without a cup of coffee, whether you take it black or topped up with your favorite milk and sweetener. But there’s no need to resign yourself to the morning jitters and an afternoon crash. This year, take a step toward a more health-conscious lifestyle by switching out your daily dose of caffeine for organic maca root.
Our Maca Coffee
Whether you choose our sweetened or unsweetened blend, The Morning Motivator is an energizing, nutritious alternative to traditional coffee drinks. Maca root is rich with vitamins, beneficial amino acids, and powerful antioxidants. The Morning Motivator is made up of only a few organic ingredients, the chief of which is our Fair Trade, non-GMO maca root.
Our maca comes exclusively from Peru, sustainably grown on locally-owned farms in the Andes region where the plant originates from. Since the early 2000s, the maca industry has been flooded with products grown in labs or adulterated with fillers and additives. But when you buy from The Maca Team, you can be sure you’re getting 100% Peruvian-grown maca root.
The Morning Motivator combines this high-quality maca with select all natural ingredients like raw cacao and mezquite for a flavorful blend that’s good for you, too. Studies have shown that regularly consuming maca root can provide you with sustained energy and mental focus. With The Morning Motivator, you can get your serving of maca in at the start of your day, ensuring that you’re headed out the door on the right foot.
Maca Coffee Recipes
Enjoying The Morning Motivator can be as simple as mixing a couple teaspoons of maca coffee in with water, or your favorite milk. Our sweetened blend contains raw coconut sugar and lucuma powder for a low glycemic flair, but you can add your sweetener of choice in as well.
There’s a reason so many people flock to pricey cafes, though. Sometimes you’re craving something a little frilly in the morning. And there’s nothing wrong with that! Fun coffee drinks with a seasonal touch can be an exciting way to start the day. That’s why we like to share our favorite Maca Recipes here at TheMacaTeam.com - who says healthy eating has to be boring?
