WARNING: There are no process pictures for this review …

This product review was sponsored by BiPro USA. All opinions are my own. Soooo…it’s spring right? Like legit spring?

As such I could be accused of…lollygagging…with this product review. I like to review protein powder both straight up (as a protein shake) and then play around with it. I already did a little of that …
