Did you know that blueberries are full of healthy nutrients? The blue fruits contain plenty of vitamin C and E, which are antioxidants and strengthen your immune system. The blueberry gets its bluish-violet colour from the so-called anthocyanins. These plant pigments have strong antioxidant properties and can counteract aging processes as well as be anti-inflammatory. From late June to late September, this superfood is in season. That means you can enjoy seasonal blueberries all summer long. And if you’re ever in the mood for some vegan blueberry ice cream in the winter, we recommend freezing a supply of fresh blueberries in the summer.
The sweet and tart lavender note tastes very delicious in combination with the blueberries. However, you should be careful with the dosage of lavender flowers, because lavender has a very distinct aroma and too much of it can taste slightly bitter. Both the leaves and the flowers of lavender are edible. Instead of fresh lavender flowers, dried flowers can also be used. By the way, lavender is an ancient medicinal plant and has a calming and relaxing effect. So this recipe will not only bring you a cooling and healthy refreshment on hot summer days, but can also be a welcome helper to unwind.
