Looking for a weight loss, meal replacement smoothie? Here it is.

Studies suggest that ginger, one of the key ingredients, may boost your metabolism by 20% hours after you eat. Perfect for improved digestion.

And the avocado serves as an appetite suppressant. The apples and dates sweeten and satiate, while the mint gives it a fresh summer zing. And then there’s the maca…libido increasing, and endurance-boosting…I told y’all this was loaded 😉
