Strawberry-Lavender Smoothie

Eating 5 to 7 servings of fruits and vegetables daily is a health goal many people struggle to accomplish. Whether you decide to make this smoothie part of a meal or a snack on the side, it can help you reach that goal. Plant-based nutrition can support diabetes health!

The great thing about smoothies is the option to play around with ingredients. Try adding flaxseeds, protein powder, or other types of berries than what's listed. Switch out dairy milk for almond milk or oat milk. Lavender may sound out of the box, but try it at least once! Any changes to the recipe will change the nutritional content of the smoothie.
