I put this recipe together as part of Loving Earth's Maca Powder Appreciation Week. This is my favourite way to take Maca, other than in a spiced hot chocolate of course. Some people find the taste of Maca a little earthy, but when you combine it with coconut milk and dates, it turns into a sweet caramel malty taste sensation. Try it out - I think you'll agree!
