Blueberry Burst

Smoothies are quick and simple way to incorporate vitamins and nutrients to your body especially if you are super busy and generally lazy about eating during the day like me. The Blueberry Burst recipe below was sourced from Forever UK and I actually like it even though I have never tried it with culinary lavender.

Benefits of  the ingredients used.

Blueberries

These little berries are crammed full of nutrients including folate, vitamin C and B6. Among other benefits, vitamin B6 contributes to normal psychological function; this means blueberries are brilliant for keeping our minds in check. You may need to eat a fair few handfuls though!

Lavender

Did you know that lavender is also an edible herb? Not only will including lavender in your beverages make you feel fancy and floral, but this dried purple treat is also a source of vitamin A, calcium and iron.

Almond milk

Almond milk is low in fat and cholesterol and it’s full of vitamins, as well as iron, calcium and zinc

Bananas

Most people know that bananas are packed full of potassium but did you also know that bananas (that aren’t too ripe) contain a good source of pectin, a fibre that (when enough is consumed) contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. Result!
