- Great way to use up extra fresh lavender
- Coffee: Use strongly brewed coffee. If you want an extra strong drink, you can use espresso instead.
- Milk: Regular 2% milk works best.
- Heavy Cream: This adds just the right amount of creaminess in combination with the milk, without overdoing it.
- Honey: The honey and lavender flavor balance each other out nicely.
- Lavender Syrup: If you have fresh lavender, this is a really easy and quick syrup to make, using lavender, water and sugar. There are many different types of lavender, and any type will work for this syrup. If you don’t want to make the syrup, you can buy a premade version online.
It can be served either way depending on what you want. If you want to drink this as an iced latte, let the coffee chill before mixing the ingredients together, and add a handful of ice before serving. If you want a hot drink, mix everything together while the coffee is hot.
Yes, this is a version of the Honeycomb Lavender Latte that you can buy at Starbucks.
- Vegan: Replace the milk and cream with oat milk, almond milk, or another type of non-dairy milk. Replace the honey with maple syrup.
- Maple Syrup: This works as a great substitute for honey if you want to try a different flavor.
- Don’t let the syrup boil. For the homemade lavender syrup, only bring the syrup to a slight simmer. If you boil the syrup, it may cause the water to evaporate too quickly, making the syrup too thick when it cools down.
- Gently press the lavender while cooking. Use the back of a wooden spoon to gently press on the fresh lavender as you are heating the syrup. This helps the flavor escape and infuse into the syrup as it cooks.
- Extra syrup: Store any extra syrup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to several weeks. For ideas on how to use extra syrup, see the full lavender syrup post.
