Healthy Brain Protein Shake

This shake will power you through the hardest and longest of days. It is 100% whole, fresh, real food, with a spotlight on healthy fats and potent antioxidants from the blueberries.


1 cup frozen blueberries                                                     2 tbsp. pumpkin seeds

2 tbsp. almond butter                                                        2 tbsp. chia seeds

1 large banana                                                              4 whole walnuts

2 tbsp. hemp seeds (rec. Hemp Hearts)                          3 whole Brazil nuts

½ cup almond milk*                                                          1 tbsp. extra-virgin coconut oil

1 cup water

*Note: Try to find almond milk that does not contain carrageenan.  It’s also possible to make your own.


Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. If the shake is too thick, add more water until you reach a thick but drinkable consistency. Serve chilled.  Makes 3 servings.
