Serving Recommendations:mm-lifestyle-3.jpg

You can simply mix the powder into your favorite drink, warm or cold.   Some people even mix it into their coffee!  1 T of powder works well with 8 ounces (1 cup) of liquid.   You can increase or decrease the amount to suit your tastes.  

It's important to note that 1 T (9G)  of The Morning Motivator contains 1 t (3g) of Maca powder.   Maca is a food and you can't take too much, so you may still take your standard daily serving of Maca separately if you like.  

The Morning Motivator is designed to energize you, so keep that in mind when you take it.    We recommend taking it at the start of your day to get your energy moving or in the middle of your day to sustain your energy.   If you take it later in the day, however, you may find it difficult to sleep.

Our Favorite Recipe: Bulletproof Morning Motivator


  • 8 ounces rice or almond milk - warm to your preferred temperature
  • 1 T Morning Motivator (more or less to taste)
  • 1-2 t - Coconut oil (melted)

Preparation:  Place all ingredients in a blender and mix thoroughly.   Enjoy immediately.  

If you have any favorite ways to use The Morning Motivator please send them in and we'll share them with the rest of The Maca Team.


Please note that we are not doctors and that the answers below are not a substitute for medical advice.  If you have any doubts about using The Morning Motivator please consult your preferred health care practitioner.

  1. Is The Morning Motivator Raw or Pre-Cooked?  -The ingredients in The Morning Motivator are Raw except for the Maca, which is Gelatinized or pre-cooked.   We've chosen to use Gelatinized Maca because it is suitable for all people, whereas Raw Maca can cause minor digestive issues for some people.   Because Gelatinized Maca is more concentrated most of the nutrient levels remain consistent with Raw Maca.
  2. Do  I also take my regular Maca, or is The Morning Motivator a replacement for that? - It really depends.   1 T of the blend contains 1 t of Maca.   If you are only taking 1 t of Maca daily, you could use The Morning Motivator as a replacement.  If you take more Maca usually, then we'd recommend taking that as well - either with your Morning Motivator or separately.  
  3. How many times a day can I take The Morning Motivator? - As a food, you can't really take "too much" and  you can take it a few times during the day (like having a few cups of coffee).  That said, we'd suggest that you don't take it later in the day and not within 4 hours of bedtime. 
  4. Will my heart rate increase when taking The Morning Motivator? - It shouldn't but for some people the mixture of Cacao and Maca does have that effect.   If you notice an uncomfortable increase after taking the blend, please reduce the amount which you are taking by at least 1/2.
  5. Can I take The Morning Motivator if I have high blood pressure? - Because it contains Maca, it is possible that the blend will help circulation and actually reduce blood pressure.   Please monitor your blood pressure when using The Morning Motivator and consult with your health care provider for any questions you may have.
  6. Can I take The Morning Motivator if I have diabetes?  - Type 2 diabetics can take the blend, but should remember that the coconut sugar in the blend has an average glycemic index of 35.   Although that is lower than table sugar (GI 58), it still shares many of the properties of sugar.
  7. Can I take The Morning Motivator if I am pregnant or breast feeding? - Maca in general is used throughout pregnancy and breast feeding in Peru.   We've also had many clients that have used it.   That said, every body is different and it may not agree with some women during this phase of life.  If that is the case for you, please discontinue using the blend.
  8. Can children take The Morning Motivator? - Yes, but in smaller amounts.  About 1/2 T per 50 lbs of weight is a good starting place.
  9. Are there any side effects? - None that we've seen so far.  Remember that this blend only contains whole foods that are eaten regularly by people all over the world.  
  10. Can I take The Morning Motivator with my medications, herbs, supplements? - This is a great question.  The general answer is that the blend is a food and should not interfere with any herbs, supplements or medications.   However, if you have any doubts, we recommend that you take only a small amount to start with and monitor your reaction.

If you have any other questions please let us know and we'll get them answered for you as quickly as we can - and also add them here for others to see too.

    The Morning Motivator

    I've been using Morning Motivator since it was first released in the sweetened version. Trying to cut down on sugars, I ordered the unsweetened version, hoping the great taste wouldn't be lost, I was very pleasantly surprised and have been ordering it ever since. I start every day with it and wouldn't be without it!

    I love this stuff

    It's not coffee and really doesn't taste like it but it is GOOD. It is full of cacao so if you like chocolate then you'll like this. I ended up choosing the unsweetened because I won't consistently drink anything really sweet. It still tastes good without me adding anything except coconut milk. I haven't yet tried it without the milk because it is so good with it. I was surprised that it doesn't have a grainy taste like other coffee substitutes. It doesn't jazz me up like coffee but it is very pleasant and keeps me going in the afternoons. I will order again.

    Morning Motivator

    I love the flavour of this product, it doesn't need a sweetener it's great how it is. I'm not a coffee drinker and I get a warm fuzzy feeling when I drink it. I'll definitely purchase again along with my maca powder.

    Morning Motivator

    My wife has progressed to a tablespoon a day over the past 3 weeks. She has not had coffee since she started taking this. She isn't as energized as coffee but this is the longest she has gone without coffee, so that's a huge plus. Price is about the same as coffee so it is working for her. Her biggest issue is the powder clumps together when she shakes it to blend it. We just haven't started using a blender like the organization has recommended. Customer service has been fantastic and we will continue on. Thank you for a great product.

    I recently tried the Morning Motivator and am so happy to have discovered it! I had been using another "maca" morning drink but it was loaded with sugar - found myself getting physically wiped out hours later, even weepy and moody when I drank it daily. I am so ecstatic to find that your blend is absolutely mentally physically and emotionally stabilizing - not to mention AMAZING TASTING! LOVE IT! I sweeten mine with just a little truvia, it's perfect. I receive an incredible brain and energy boost - never feel jittery or anxiety ridden, like real coffee can do to stress out and fatigue the adrenal and central nervous system. I will forever purchase this drink, and gift it to all my friends! Thanks for being such an amazing MACA company!!

    THIS IS IT!!!

    Finally my husband dropped the morning cup of strong coffee that way affecting his blood pressure. He mixes the unsweetened morning motivator in hot water, that's it. The taste is growing on him, compared to coffee but describes how he feels as AMAZING! No more caffeine spikes and crashes. He asked me to keep ordering it!....I enjoy it as well. I dissolve it in hot water add warm unsweetened almond milk and a little honey or cinnamon. Thank you for helping us find a great alternative that works for us!

    Fills the gap!

    I'm hooked on coffee and will always be so. But there's that time in the morning after the second cup when I need a little more "comfort" but don't need anymore jolt. I thought I would try the Morning Motivator and am so glad I did. 5 grams in a large mug of steaming hot water and then savor that sweet smell and taste before facing the work day- this is a great product and I will be re-ordering for sure.

    I've been ordering the sweetened Motivator for a while and decided to try the new unsweetened. Took a few days to adjust to the decreased sweetness, but now find myself enjoying it more and more every day. Sometimes add a little stevia. Love the chocolate!
