This Lavender Latte has a sweet floral note from lavender simple syrup. Made with coffee or espresso, it is simple and easy to make.
Does Lavender Taste Good In Coffee?
This Lavender Latte took me by surprise. I needed to use up some lavender simple syrup that I had made for another recipe.
I honestly didn't think I would like lavender in my coffee; boy was I wrong! It's got a delightful floral flavor that isn't overpowering.
It's definitely a drink I'll add into my rotation. I think you may be pleasantly surprised as well.
In a small saucepan, bring water, sugar, and edible lavender flowers to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook partially covered for 10-15 minutes.
Place a fine mesh strainer over a mason jar or other container, and strain lavender flowers from simple syrup.
Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Pour hot coffee into a mug. Pour lavender simple syrup into the mug and stir.
Froth soy milk. If you don't have a milk frother you can blend it in a high speed blender, or shake it in a mason jar with a secure lid with a towel over it.
Pour soy milk over coffee. Spoon foam on top.
- Do NOT use a Nutribullet to blend hot soy milk. It doesn't do well with hot liquids. If you want to use it, blend cold soy milk.
- I used soy milk because it froths nicely. You can use any plant based milk you like.
- You can use espresso instead of strong coffee. I used cold brew coffee because that's what I normally drink. It's less acidic than regular coffee.

**Important! If you are gluten free you may want to avoid coffee altogether. I personally have never had a problem drinking it, and I have a gluten intolerance. It is probably because I drink whole bean organic coffee, and grind it myself. I learned that it can be problematic for people who don't tolerate gluten. So I did some research and one article mentioned to try organic whole bean coffee because it isn't highly processed causing cross-reactivity issues. So please do the research yourself, and test it out. I try to only post recipes that are 100% gluten free since I have a gluten intolerance. I am really careful about avoiding gluten in my daily life.
