Chef's Notes

Substitutions
Make your plant-based milk go further by substituting ½ cup of water for ½ cup unsweetened plant-based milk. Just know that it will be less creamy.

Any berries are great here! Feel free to use organic strawberries or a combination of berries in place of blueberries.

No almond butter? Add ¼ cup whole raw almonds and blend a little longer.

Make it cold and slushy
Add a handful of ice to the blender if you prefer it cold and slushy.

Add superfood boosters
Add your favorite superfood powders. I added 1 tsp spirulina and 1 tsp mushroom powder for an extra immune boost. It’ll still be delicious!

Storage
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours.
