Relaxing Lavender & Berry Smoothie
I absolutely love using lavender in my cooking. #lavenderlove
One of my favourite herbs, lavender has been traditionally used to help ease panic and anxiety for thousands of years, just the smell of lavender can evoke a sense of stress relief and relaxation.
This recipe combines avocado and banana which both are high in potassium which can help to reduce and regulate blood pressure. If you haven't tried lavender in your cooking yet, you must! I will post my favourites on our website over the next few weeks. You can look forward to Lavender shortbread, lavender scones with real cream, lavender, feta and spinach quiches. In the meantime, try out this recipe and let me know what you think;)
1 cup of frozen mixed berries ½ banana ½ avocado ¼ cup spinach 1 tablespoon fresh, chopped lavender or 1/2 tablespoon of dried, chopped lavender 1 cup of coconut milk 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract ½ cup of ice
Blend all ingredients and enjoy
