Lavender Peach Smoothie

  • Servings: 1
  • Ready In: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon lavender, fresh or dried
  • 1 cup peaches, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon flax seed
  • 1 cup of milk (dairy, almond, or coconut)
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • 1 cup ice

Health Benefits

  • Banana: high in potassium and magnesium to promote relaxation and balance in the body, bananas are also a good source of dietary fiber for optimal digestive health.

  • Lavender: helps to alleviate depression and anxiety. This multipurpose herb can help promote better sleep and relaxation, and may even relieve headaches, insomnia, and tension.

  • Peaches: are juicy and sweet tasting, but pretty low in calories. What are they high in? Vitamins A, C, and K, potassium for electrolyte balance, and fiber for constipation control.

  • Honey: is a healthy and all natural sweetener, and an ideal replacement for refined sugars. Honey supplies glucose to the liver for a quick energy boost when muscle glycogen stores are low. Raw local honey can provide allergy relief.

  • Vanilla extract: has powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also been shown to reduce anxiety via aromatherapy, and when ingested causes the immune system to release cytokines, which help reduce inflammation and improve mental health.

  • Flaxseed: is a fabulous source of omega-3 fatty acids for heart, brain, and metabolism support. And the fiber in flaxseed can help keep you full for longer.

  • Maca: balances hormones, increases libido, and boosts energy and performance. Take a teaspoon of maca a day for improved mood and less anxiety.
