Latte recipe alert: Vanilla lavender

We've been trying out some new latte recipes and we just love this one. Made with vanilla beans and lavender buds this recipe offers a relaxing yet tasty start or end to any part of the day.


  • 1/2 cup of hot coffeeย 
  • 1/2 cup of milk (almond or soy milk also work great in this recipe)
  • 1 tsp culinary grade lavender buds
  • 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 1 tsp honey (optional)

How to make it:

  1. Heat the milk, lavender, seeds of the vanilla bean and honey (if using) either in the microwave or on the stove, just until it comes to a simmer. Let it sit for five minutes, then strain.ย 
  2. Pour the hot coffee into a mug, then top with the hot milk. The milk is great frothy, but this is optional.
  3. Garnish with a few lavender buds and enjoy!
