Juice Plus+ Vanilla Complete Protein powder
The base of my smoothie is always the plant based protein powder from Juice Plus+. It is made with non-GMO ingredients, it is gluten free, and it’s a great source of protein and fiber. Because this is a whole food shake mix, and not packed with lab-created vitamins and minerals, it is more readily utilized by my body. I definitely noticed the difference in how much better this tastes and how much better I feel, once I switched to Juice Plus+.
If you’d like to know more about my journey with Juice Plus+, and the health benefits that I have personally experienced, or how to become a Juice Plus+ rep, you can check out my review of Juice Plus+ here.

- powerful antioxidant
- preventing heart disease
