Suffering a post-workout energy lull or a mid-day/too-much-sun motivation dip? Zapped. Got it. Maybe a Protein Blast from Makis? Try this blend of bananas, strawberries, almond milk, yogurt, protein and peanut butter. It also has frozen bowls and juices, like the Stress Buster with celery, carrots, pineapple and lettuce (but who’s stressed, right?).
