Smoothie Tuesday! Blueberry lavender rose smoothie

berry rose smoothie 020

This is a great way to feel calm and cool in this hot summer heat! I notice our family tends to get more irritable in the summer heat so this is the perfect cure for that! Lavender and roses are naturally calming flowers when their scent is inhaled or they are ingested. I used rose petals for this but you can also use about a teaspoon of rose water also.
