Blueberry Lavender & Honeycomb Breakfast Milkshake

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.. ok sorry, that joke has been done like 1000 times, but what can I say? THIS milkshake DOES bring all the boys to the yard, and who doesn’t like a tasty breakfast with a side of hunk? WE ALL DO.

I think I’ve said this before, but I am not a fan of anything oatmeal, it’s just so blah, and especially now in summer, don’t even dare to put a bowl of that boring warm goop in front of me or you’ll end up wearing it as a face mask (seriously though, oatmeal facials are awesome).

This messy – but mighty tasty – breaky was inspired by an ice cream flavour I had a couple weeks ago over at Earnest Ice Cream here in Vancouver (BEST ice cream ever). Lavender is a tricky flavour to mix and I usually find it a bit over the top, but there’s something in the blueberries that just make it work! Add some tangy super thick yogurt, and top it all up with sweet chewy honeycomb and – trust me – your day is going to shine bright like a diamond.

You can easily make this milkshake into a bowl and add your favourite toppings (nuts, granola, the works!) or you could even freeze it into popsicles! A list of boosters is provided at the end of the post.

Ok, grab your blueberries and come over to the kitchen ’cause breaky is served!

Blueberry Lavender & Honeycomb Breakfast Milkshake

Serves 2

Ingredients:
– 2 cups yogurt (greek works great, but you can also use any dairy-free options)
– 1 cup frozen blueberries
– 1 cup coconut milk
– 1 tablespoon lemon juice
– 1 teaspoon lavender buds
– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
– 1 pack of honeycomb (available at most health food stores)

Instructions:
1. First, place the yogurt in a metal bowl and place it in the freezer for at least 30 min (while you shower!) OR you can leave it overnight and take it out of the freezer 10 minutes prior to using it.
2. In a blender, place all the other ingredients and blend in high speed until the mix is completely smooth. Adjust flavourings if needed (e.g. add more lavender or a touch of honey)
3. In a glass, scoop 1 cup of frozen yogurt, add 1 cup of blueberry lavender mix and swirl. Top with a few nice chunks of honeycomb. And that’s it!

BOOSTERS: You can add any boosters/toppings of your choice to make this milkshake extra special. A few faves that won’t change the taste:

– Hemp seeds
– Bee polen
– Cashews
– Chia seeds
– Puffed quinoa
– Hemp protein powder

Enjoy!
