Jing is the Chinese word for ‘essence’, specifically the Kidney essence. In the ancient Taoist tradition, fatigue, weakness and hormonal imbalance, were all considered a result of Jing depletion. Our nourishing JING blend is designed to restore and ignite the Jing energy and promote vitality within the body, mind and spirit from the ground up.
This nourishing recipe makes 1 nice, tall, decadent, rich, subtly sweet, deliciously indulgent, creamy, dreamy, secretly healthy, dark chocolate macadamia smoothie that literally tastes like straight up dessert!
