To prevent the blueberries from sinking in the mug – optional
In a small bowl, beat egg, vanilla, unsweetened almond milk, and melted coconut oil.

In another mixing bowl, stir blueberries with coconut flour. This prevents them from sinking at the bottom of the mug.

Cool 2 minutes before serving to avoid burning yourself.
Enjoy directly in the mug. Top with unsweetened whipped cream if desired
