Xtreme Pumpkin Soup
This is a spin on a yummy family recipe for pumpkin soup. The addition of Xtreme Maca powder has given this soup a really creamy texture, with a mild nutty flavour. Of course Maca is packed with vitamins and minerals and is fantastic for increasing libido and easing the symptoms of menopause in women, so there are plenty of reasons to give it a try.
