Blueberry, Banana & Lavender Smoothie

Bluberry banana and lavender smoothie

A delicious a healthy smoothie that contains good sources of carbohydrates for energy (banana, date), protein (cashews), antioxidants to help prevent again and disease (blueberries), a healthy source of omega 3 (flaxseeds) and overall a good range of vitamins and minerals to fuel your body. Lavender really adds a sophisticated and unique touch to this smoothie, but is entirely optional – it will still be a tasty smoothie regardless!
