Green Protein Boost Juice

Plants are packed with protein too, just like in this green juice. When you juice your fruits and vegetables, you are concentrating the nutrients including the naturally occurring protein content, so some juices (like this one) can have up to 10 g of protein, and that’s before I added Reboot with Joe Protein Powder. I decided to add an additional serving of our protein powder to really give it a great boost. Protein is important for growth and repair of tissues and cells and is also excellent for blood sugar and appetite control – here is more on the benefits of protein ! Enjoy!
