This guy is filled with a balance of each of the three macronutrients, includes a generous amount of greens and a touch of superfoods. Let’s take a dive!
BANANA:an easily digestible carbohydrate full of potassium, fiber, as well as vitamins C and B.

GREENS POWDER: none in particular; use whichever brand you like here, but some of my favorites are Amazing Grass, Flora, and Green Vibrance. This provides you with extra green vegetables in an easily digestible form.
PROTEIN POWDER: plant-based, easily digestible, supports lean muscle growth, balanced blood sugar levels.
GINGER: The queen of digestion and anti-inflammatory benefits! Add to anything and everything!
