This is a powerful green substance that tastes freaking amazing!
You have digestive and anti-inflammatory benefits from the pineapple and ginger. Fibre from pretty much all of it. Good fats from the avocado and hemp hearts - you need for your nervous system! Don't ditch the fat! A boost of vitamin C from the pineapple - immune boosting! Ginger adds more immune-boosting power! Kale, that beautiful green is so powerful! Anti-inflammatory, loaded with vitamin K, supports eye health and more! Lastly that cilantro...that tastes like soap...well not for me! I love it! The leaves are shown to have antimicrobial properties, antioxidants and bad cholesterol lowering capabilities.
