Elevated Lavender Latte Recipe
- 2 shots of espresso or ½ cup of strong brewed coffee
- 2 drops of Chroma Coffee Drops
- 1 cup of milk (your choice of dairy or plant-based milk)
- 1-2 tablespoons of lavender simple syrup (to taste)
- Lavender buds for garnish
- Optional: whipped cream for topping
Brew the coffee. Start by brewing a robust, rich cup of coffee or pulling two shots of espresso.
Add Chroma Coffee Drops. While the coffee is hot, add 2 drops of Chroma Coffee Drops. This helps to decrease the acidity, enhancing the overall flavor profile of the coffee. Stir to combine.
Prepare the lavender simple syrup. If you don't have it on hand, make your lavender simple syrup by combining equal parts sugar and water, and a few tablespoons of culinary lavender. Boil, simmer until the sugar is dissolved, then strain and cool.
Steam the milk. Next, steam your milk until it's hot and has a creamy froth. If you don't have a milk steamer, you can warm it in a saucepan and froth it with a whisk or a handheld frother.
Combine. Pour the lavender simple syrup into the coffee, then slowly add the steamed, frothy milk.
Garnish and enjoy. For an extra luxurious touch, top your latte with some whipped cream. Sprinkle a few lavender buds on top for a visually appealing, aromatic finish. Now, it's time to sit back and savor your sophisticated, homemade Lavender Latte.
Introducing Chroma Coffee Drops to your coffee routine truly transforms your Lavender Latte. With just two drops, your latte becomes smoother and more enjoyable, allowing the unique flavors of lavender and coffee to shine through.
So, take a moment to relax, breathe in the calming aroma, and enjoy each soothing sip of your Elevated Lavender Latte.
