Orange Maple Maca Glaze

This orange maple maca glaze is perfect for muffins, cakes, monkey bread, cinnamon rolls, or even pancakes! It contains no added sugars or butter! Have your *enter holiday dessert here* and eat it, too! 

The flavors (each fighting for dominance) in this icing work year-round. Orange ensures it is suitable for spring, maple makes it Fall-friendly, and maca is… just delicious. It sounds wackadoo, but my energy rivals a four-year-old’s. So, on par with Superman. Or Wonder Woman. Yeah, she’s better. Want to argue? Okay, open your piehole. But I might slip something dripping in this conversation-concluding glaze.

Orange Maple Maca Glaze

Recipe Yield: 1/2 cup (double to cover larger desserts)

WHAT YOU’RE GONNA NEED:
WHAT YOU’RE GONNA DO:
  1. With a small/thin fork, whisk together the protein, maca, and powdered sugar substitute.
  2. Add the maple extract and orange juice. Vigorously stir until your desired consistency is reached.
  3. For a pourable consistency, add a dash of extra orange juice. For a thicker “frosting” that I nicknamed “protein paste,” use less liquid. Ground flax is a great thickener, but unless you’re serving this glaze to fellow health nuts, I’d stick to more protein.

*The type of maca powder does not matter. Gelatinized, added adaptogens, etc.

**I used a 50%-less-calories-50%-less-sugar-orange juice, naturally cut with monk fruit. This is better for your teeth and blood sugar.
