BLUEBERRY CACAO TAHINI SHAKE

This is a play on one of the best smoothies we've ever had, served at Horizon Yoga Hotel in Mal Pais, Costa Rica.  In Costa Rica, it was made with fresh mango, papaya and banana grown on the hotel's property.  In our variation, we use B.C. blueberries. This shake has the creaminess of a milkshake with a slight crunchy texture imparted by the cacao nibs and cinnamon stick.  Plus, it's packed with all sorts of nutritional powerhouse ingredients to fuel your day.
