RECIPE: Haskap Berry and Banana Breakfast Shake

If crawling out of bed in the morning and going to work is absolutely necessary (why, oh why?), then at least treat yourself to a breakfast shake that will make both your taste buds and tummy happy. This is it. If you don’t have tahini (sesame paste), almond or cashew butters are good substitutions.
