This breakfast shake is so thick and delicious that it reminds me of the malteds I use to get when I was a kid. And between the blueberries, coconut milk, hemp seeds, and almond butter, it’s a real nutritional powerhouse. You might find, as I do, that a couple of glasses will keep you going for most of the day.

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
2 cups coconut water or unsweetened coconut beverage
5 tablespoons almond butter
¼ cup hemp seeds
¼ cup water
3 tablespoons agave or maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
For a creamy mousse, refrigerate overnight, and eat it with a spoon the next day!
