If you see lavender drinks at your local coffee shop and want to make them at home, then this recipe is perfect for you. Lavender tastes great in drinks and has calming properties.

The taste is a subtle lavender flavor. It’s not overwhelming. If you use lavender simple syrup made with vanilla extract, the latte will have a subtly sweet vanilla lavender flavor. It tastes and smells amazing!

If you love warm and cozy drinks, try a mocha latte or homemade hot chocolate.

Serving Tips

  • Serve a crowd: If you are hosting a group, you can 6x or 8x this recipe to make a larger batch.
  • Use any type of milk: You can use conventional milk, almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk or any other non-dairy milk of your choice.
  • Froth the milk: For warm drinks, froth the milk. If you don’t have a milk frother, you can heat the milk in a small saucepan and whisk vigorously while it heats to froth the milk.
  • Garnish: We like to garnish with lavender buds, especially for presentation, but this is completely optional.
