Lavender Coconut Smoothie
Even though my Ayervedic friends would chide me for drinking cold beverages in the winter, I’ve been having a mad love affair with smoothies in the morning. They’re quick, easy, and versatile, and SO much fun to play around with. The most fun ingredients I’ve been experimenting with lately are essential oils.
Today’s smoothie called for lavender. Known as the “Swiss Army Knife” of essential oils, lavender has a myriad of benefits from easing tension and depression to soothing digestive issues. When ingested internally, lavender essential oil can boost your immune system while promoting healthy cell-generation. Did I mention it’s delicious? But don’t take my word for it. Try this:
Ingredients: (For 2 Servings)
2 cups coconut water
1 large handful shredded coconut
2 cups frozen blueberries
1 drop doTerra lavender essential oil
*Optional: 1 Scoop high-quality protein powder
Put all ingredients into a blender, and blend to smithereens. Divide between two glasses. Serve and enjoy!
*NOTE: Not all essential oils are created equal. I only use doTerra because their oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade, which is suitable for internal, external, and aromatherapeutic consumption.
*NOTE: All doTerra Essential Oils are extremely potent. I’d recommend 1 drop per 2-serving smoothie. Otherwise, just know that you will have a VERY strong-tasting snack!
