Looking for a delicious lavender blueberry smoothie? There’s nothing more satisfying (and calming!) than this lavender blueberry smoothie. You’ll really enjoy this easy-to-make wild blueberry smoothie.
Let’s hear it for soothing floral herbs like lavender in our smoothies! This wild blueberry and lavender delight is bound to help you de-stress and power up for your morning.
This combo of antioxidant-rich wild blueberries and lavender makes a delicious post-workout smoothie. You also get a dose of calming effects to help manage anxiety or just to help keep you feeling chilled out.
Thanks to the folks at Wild Blueberries of North America for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own!
My inner foodie gets so excited thinking about all the new food trends to embrace next year. I’m going to clue you in on a few of my favorites, which I’m including in this wild blueberry lavender smoothie:
You can expect to see both fresh and dried herbs in everything from smoothies to lattes to pancake syrup. Lavender, rose, and hibiscus will be highlighted flowers this year.
My personal favorite is lavender because it’s so calming! A mixture of dried edible flowers can make a beautiful topping for this wild blueberry smoothie.
While powdered peanut butter has long been growing in popularity, we’re going to see even more powdered ingredients gaining rank, from matcha to powdered eggs.
If you want to add extra protein to a recipe, powdered eggs and powdered egg whites are good options because they’re less processed than many other protein powders.
The protein helps keep your blood sugar levels stable and helps to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
I don’t usually suggest protein powders, but egg powder is a one-ingredient, food-based product I can actually get behind. Want to try egg powder yourself? Here are good picks:
- Judee’s Whole Egg Powder
- Augason Farms Dried Whole Egg Product
- Now Sports Nutrition Egg White Protein
- It’s Just Egg White Powder
As you probably know, I’m a big fan of wild ingredients such as wild blueberries because these foods can contain more nutrients than some of their conventional counterparts.
Wild blueberries, for example, offer twice the antioxidants of cultivated blueberries—and eating an antioxidant-rich diet may help decrease the risk of cancer and heart disease. Now, let’s chat about how to make this wild blueberry lavender smoothie!
I decided to combine these three food trends into one delicious lavender blueberry smoothie, so I blended together frozen wild blueberries with dried lavender and powdered eggs.
Now let’s get to smoothie making! Literally all you need to do is combine all the ingredients into a blender and blend!
I sipped this smoothie first thing in the morning, and it presented such a calming start to my day! I hope you’ll love this smoothie as much as I do! It takes just a few minutes to blend up!
It definitely is! The wild blueberry smoothie recipe is made with a few protein-offering ingredients, including milk, plain Greek yogurt, and powdered eggs.
That blueberry Greek yogurt combo is delish! Because of this, it offers an excellent amount of protein, 28 grams, which would also make it a great choice to sip post workout to help build and repair muscles.
It’s not, but it’s easy to make the smoothie vegan. You’d need to swap out the Greek yogurt for plain soy yogurt and the milk for soy, almond, or oat milk.
Then you can either omit the egg powder, or you can trade it for hemp or pea protein, which are both vegan.
You can blend egg powder into pretty much any smoothie recipe, such as a Layered Strawberry Orange Smoothie or a Healthy Avocado Smoothie with Grape Juice, for a protein boost. You can also mix it into an Avocado Chocolate Mousse.
