A Watermelon Lavender Smoothie may sound a bit strange, but this odd combination is light, floral and delicious.
The key to cooking with Lavender is to start with small amounts. If you add too much, your lovely dish will taste like potpourri. I’ve been working to incorporate lavender into more recipes and this smoothie was a perfect choice. The watermelon is fresh and sweet, and the vanilla yogurt blends well with the floral taste of the lavender.
A wonderful benefit of experimenting with herbs, is the transformation they bring to your food. Something you may have eaten 100 times, suddenly takes on a completely new taste. Try adding a pinch of lavender to your salads, breads or desserts.
- In a blender, combine watermelon, yogurt, dairy-free milk and lavender. Blend until smooth.
- Serve immediately.
