Damn! That photo of the Mocha Monkey smoothie looks absolutely delicious! Thanks for feeding my eyes Stephanie.

That’s also a great level of zinc. Is that from the bananas?

You’re most welcome for the eye candy, Emmanuel, and that’s a great question.

The high zinc content of this smoothie is due to the banana, flax and protein powder.
