Lavender Latte

I’m no barista by any means but I love making my own iced coffees and lattes at home in an effort to save some money!

Lavender is one of my favorites to use in so many drinks. I make a lavender simple syrup that can be used for iced coffee, teas, lemonade and… lattes!

Let’s get started!

Lavender Simple Syrup

1 ½teaspoons dried lavender
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup water
½ cup honey

1. Add all ingredients to a small saucepan. Turn heat to low and stir until sugar dissolves.

2. Simmer an additional 5-7 minutes, or until syrup coats the back of a spoon. Do not let it burn! It will thicken a bit more when cooled.

3. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain out the lavender and allow syrup to cool completely before using. Store extra in the fridge.

Latte Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons lavender simple syrup
  • 1/3 cup strong coffee
  • 1/2 cup milk or non-dairy
  • 1/3 cup ice

Directions

1. Add in ice, pour milk into the glass.

2. Add in simple syrup and stir

3. Top with ice.

4. Enjoy!
