Why Make This Lavender Latte at Home?

When you choose to make your own Iced Lavender Oat Milk Latte at home, you gain full control over every ingredient. That ensures a clean label drink that suits your taste preferences perfectly.

For example, you can handpick your favorite ground coffee or even grind your own beans.

Of course, you can adjust sweetness. Whether you're off sugar or using date syrup, honey, agave or coconut sugar, you control how much goes in!

Why not experiment with different varieties of lavender to create your unique brew?

Also, you can play with the intensity of the lavender flavor (just dial up or down the amount of lavender you use). Or get creative with flavor combinations like vanilla or cinnamon.

Yep, making lattes at home let's you make a coffee that's:

* tailored to your taste buds, and

* aligns with your likes and preferences!

Exploring the Flavor of Lavender in Food

Have you tried lavender in food before?

Lavender has a truly remarkable taste profile. It blends subtle sweetness with floral and herbal notes which really take drinks like lattes to new heights!

The innate sweetness of lavender complements the bold flavor of coffee without overpowering it. Its aromatic notes can transport you to fields of blooming gardens! And its herbal undertones add depth and complexity to a latte.

As you will see (well, taste!) lavender adds a unique touch - it's a taste worth exploring.

What are the Health Benefits of Lavender?

Incorporating lavender into your latte is just a different taste experience. It also has some healthful benefits.

Lavender's calming properties (thanks to compounds like linalool and linalyl acetate), can promote relaxation and reduce stress / anxiety.

Lavender may also improve sleep quality - opt for a caffeine-free coffee or infuse into an herbal tea if you're taking it before bed!

Is this Recipe Easy?

This recipe could not be easier!

The secret lies in adding the dried lavender buds to the coffee grinds. That simple step infuses just the right hit of lavender to the coffee, without adding lots of additional work and time to the process.

Plus, with JOI oat milk creamer on hand, you never run out of creamy, delicious oat milk. Just add to water and mix with the coffee!
