Lavender-Smoothie

There are certain flavors that I love in just about anything. Lavender smoothie? Definitely on the list.  Cardamom, citrus, and rosemary are a few others, but my husband knows that if we come across anything with lavender, I’m probably going to want to try it, especially if it’s in something you may not normally see it, like caramel sauce or beer (there’s a brewery near us that makes a lavender wheat that I have yet to try; it’s definitely on my list!)

Lavender-Tin

One of my favorite ice cream flavors is a Wild Berry Lavender from Jeni’s, and this smoothies is modeled off of that. It’s not exactly the same, but it’s very similar. Orange zest and lavender are the primary flavors, but blueberries and bananas are in there too. It’s interesting, unique, and takes a bit of a different turn from your traditional berry banana smoothie, but it’s delicious nonetheless!

Dried-Lavender

One thing to mention if you’ve never cooked with or used lavender for eating: A little goes a long way. Too much and you go from a nice pop of floral flavor to soap. Even if you really, really love the flavor, don’t be tempted to add too much. Trust me.

This blueberry smoothie gets floral notes from lavender, and a bright flavor from a hint of orange.
