This energizing and uplifting recipe from The Art of Raw Food by Jens Casupei and Vibeke Kaupert is a great breakfast stand-in that’s sure to help you get your morning—and year—off to a bright start.

Blue Passion Smoothie
1¾ cup (4 dls) pineapple
1¼ cup (3 dls) nut milk
2 tablespoons agave nectar
½ teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup (2 dls) blueberries
1 passion fruit

Blend the pineapple, nut milk, agave nectar, and vanilla. Pour the mixture into a champagne glass (or two) until it is half full.

Add the blueberries to the remaining mixture and blend, then add to the mixture in the half-filled glass.

Cut the passion fruit in half and remove the flesh with a spoon. Add the passion fruit and serve.
