This Blue Lavender Smoothie is one of my favorite ways to start the day.
In addition to a unique flavor profile, it packs a double punch of antioxidants and fiber from the blueberries and chia seeds. The kefir provides beneficial probiotics, and you even get a chance to sneak in a few dark, leafy kale greens!
If you use fresh blueberries or want a thinner smoothie, throw in a handful of ice. You can also adjust the amount of sweetener and lavender to your liking.
Ingredients (1 serving):
1/2 cup frozen organic blueberries
1 cup kefir
3 large leaves of kale, stems removed
½-1 tsp. maple syrup
½ tsp. dried lavender
1/4 tsp. vanilla bean paste
1 tbsp. chia seeds
Pinch sea salt
Blend all ingredients in high-speed blender until smooth.
