Lavender Lemon Smoothie.
This lemon smoothie is powerful. Did you know that lemon and lavender together can cleanse, energize and reduce your stress?
Great way to begin the day, I’d say! Specifically lemon juice provides vitamin C which improves your skin, supports weight loss, assists digestion, and even prevents kidney stones.
How Healthy is Lavender?
Lavender is known to lower heart rate and reduce blood pressure, essentially helping you feel calm. And the lime?
I like to add it to any citrus recipe because its sweetness tempers the lemon sour flavor. I also add a bit of turmeric to turn it yellow and provide its own healthy additions.
How Healthy is Lemon?
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? Yep!
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.
And this recipe is not just valuable nutritionally, and because it’s pretty. It is also wonderful because of its scent: A strong lemon smell, mixed with fresh lavender!
I hope this smoothie brightens your mood as much as it often brightens mine..
