Blueberry Lavender Shake
Lavender is a perfect gift from nature to help you unwind. While adding lavender essential oil to a bath or your sheets can be very relaxing before bed, you can also enjoy lavender on a hot summer day in this cold, fresh shake.
Lavender, a medicinal plant with calming properties, is a very popular aromatherapy scent. With antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, it sends a relaxation signal to our brain. This shake combines lavender, blueberries, lemon, and ginger—a combination of ingredients that will make your taste buds sing, while also full of phytochemicals, vitamin c, and anti-inflammatory properties.
This shake recipe is flexible based on what you have on hand. Blueberries could be replaced with strawberries. Chia seeds (as written in the recipe) provide a perfect creamy texture and healthy fats, but could be replaced with hemp seeds or flaxseeds. Fresh ginger could be replaced with ½ teaspoon of ground ginger. If you prefer a lighter shake, you could use half water and half non-dairy milk.
