Vegan + Adaptogenic Banana Blueberry Bread

While each and every one of us may have discovered our favorite banana bread recipe this past year, we bet you have never tried one like this! By adding in blueberries, and topping it with frosting, this loaf already goes above and beyond! And then, with the addition of some very impactful "secret" ingredients, this becomes way more than a dessert. 

Sarah included our Qi Energy + Protein powder, which is bursting with adaptogens that help to balance the adrenals, provide jitters-free sustained energy, and add some healthy protein to your day. 

As an added benefit, she slathered the bread with a coconut rich frosting boosted with the immune protecting properties of elderberries, Skullcap, Cordyceps, Reishi, Shiitake and Maiitake-- all found in our Black Elderberry Syrup

That plus bananas, fiber, and antioxidant rich blueberries makes for a delicious way to absorb nutrients! We hope you like it berry much!
