A bright lavender lemon smoothie fresh and easy to make. It is creamy and citrus-y, has turmeric, and can lower your anxiety, boost your immunity as well as help you feel full, aiding in weight-loss.
This lavender lemon smoothie is powerful in flavor and nutrition. Lemon and lavender together can cleanse, energize and reduce your stress. Add in turmeric to add immunity boosting to the list of this smoothie's credentials.
In addition, lemons also provide vitamin C which improves your skin, supports weight loss, assists digestion, and even prevents kidney stones.
Why You'll Love This Smoothie
The taste is bright and delicious. This smoothie isn't all about health. It tastes bright and citrusy as well. To up the citrus flavor, increase the amount of lemon juice you add. I use lemon juice from a bottle these days, a quality organic brand because I just drink too much lemon juice to be squeezing them.
Lavender is incredibly healthy. Lavender is known to lower heart rate and reduce blood pressure, essentially helping you feel calm.
Citrus adds vitamin C. It's common knowledge that lemon is high in vitamin C and that is an immunity-booster for sure! But did you know also how essential vitamin C is for the function of the brain? An NIH study explains how much vitamin C supports the brain, especially repairing it, including during healing after a concussion. Specifically, vitamin C is essential in the body's production of Glutathione, an antioxidant essential to helping repair the brain.
How to Make
This lemon smoothie is so easy to make.
Just make tea, blend up ingredients and drink. The mango turns the yogurt fairly yellow, but to intensify the yellow, add a ½ teaspoon of turmeric. And, optionally, I added the zest of both lemons and whole culinary lavender buds to the top.
Make without yogurt. Yes, I don't include yogurt because I use zucchini to thicken instead. If you need to sweeten it, add some green grapes, they won't change the color. You can also add lime juice. Lime tends to give you the illusion that something is sweeter than it is.
Leafy greens to add. Add leafy greens if you wish, but the color will change to green or darken, but if you use a high-speed blender and toss in baby spinach or even baby kale to increase potassium. The flavor won't change at all.
This lemon smoothie is:
- Supports Weight-loss
- Reduces Anxiety
- Easy to Make
Is this Lemon Smoothie Vegan & Dairy-Free?
As are all my smoothies, this lemon smoothie recipe is vegetarian, vegan, plant-based, dairy-free, and gluten-free.

This looks amazing and what is this homemade cashew yogurt of which you speak?!
Thanks for sharing all your wonderful recipes!
Thank you for your kind feedback! Here is my recipe for homemade cashew yogurt! Dee
Is it okay to replace plant yogurt with dairy yogurt? I mainly keep a vegan diet for everything else except when it comes to yogurt.
Thanks for stopping by! I'm not sure how dairy handles the acidity of lemon and lime together, but you could try a little at first and see how it goes. Best of luck, Dee xx.
