Holistic Approaches For Natural Relaxation
The most prominent pillar of holistic wellness is a functional nutrition approach and the use of plant-based foods as medicine as a way to improve the quality of our lives and improve our health.
This smoothie focuses on combining blueberries, lavender, and CBD oil as our star foods.
Health Benefits of Wild Blueberries
While you can use any frozen blueberries you want, this recipe specifically calls for frozen wild blueberries due to their incredible nutrition and antioxidant benefits.
Compared to traditionally cultivated blueberries, wild blueberries have twice the number of antioxidants per serving.
Antioxidants also help to minimize the number of free radicals found in the body.
You can buy wild blueberries in the frozen section of your local supermarket at any time of year. The wild berries are frozen at their peak ripeness, preserving their nutritional value, leaving you with an amazingly delicious and healthful option all year long.
Health Benefits of Lavender
Lavender has been traditionally and medicinally used as part of a holistic lifestyle for thousands of years.
It has been reported just the thought of the smell of lavender can evoke a sense of stress relief and relaxation.
Together in this smoothie, lavender combined with avocado and banana proves to have some amazing stress-relieving qualities.
Lavender can be used fresh or dried, in oil or tea form and can be used in this smoothie in whatever way you can find it.
Milk & Plant-Based Alternatives
As we know, milk choices really are a personal preference for everyone.
Luckily, this smoothie is flexible and you can use any type of milk you desire.
Whether it be traditional dairy-based or a dairy-free alternative, switching milk for any plant milk will work just fine.
Plant milk substitutions include:
