I created this recipe for my friends at the Herbal Academy! I was so excited when they agreed to let me create this beverage because I’d been working on it and wanted to perfect it.

So, confession time: I’ve become a bit of a coffee shop deserter. Remember those pre-everything days when a cozy cafe was the ultimate escape – a chance to unwind, savor a latte, and maybe even tackle a to-do list in an inspiring atmosphere? Yeah, those were the good ol’ days. Now, between the rising cost of a fancy latte, the sneaky overly sweet sugar syrups lurking in some drinks, and the ever-present “I-could-totally-nail-this-at-home” voice in my head, I just haven’t been to a coffee shop in ages. But here’s the thing – a part of me misses it!

The social buzz, the comfy chairs, that undeniable cafe ambiance… anyone else feeling this internal struggle? So, I gotta ask: are you still a loyal coffee shop patron, or have you, like me, become a home brewer extraordinaire? And if you do indulge in an out-of-the-house beverage, what’s your gotta-have-it splurge drink? Let’s commiserate (or celebrate – no judgment here!)

Spotting lavender matcha on the menu at the ubiquitous coffee shop? Big yawn. Don’t get me wrong, as the flower fanatic behind frolic and fare, I’m thrilled lavender’s having a moment. But here’s the thing: I crave real flavors. I’m talking vibrant blooms, whispers of herb, and the satisfaction of crafting a drink that’s as stunning as it is sippable. So, while the world embraces lavender lattes on autopilot, I’m here to teach you how to brew a botanical masterpiece at home.

Creating this beverage wasn’t exactly a walk in the flower park. The biggest hurdle? The lavender cold foam. I wanted that gorgeous purple contrasting matcha green and that real lavender taste. This magical trio delivered the delicate lavender flavor I craved, all wrapped up in a stunning purple hue. Lavender-infused milk with a touch of butterfly pea flower and black currant powder. Let’s break down how to make it at home:

Ingredients:

Matcha latte:

  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder
  • 2 oz (1/4 cup) cold water ice cubes
  • 6 oz (3/4 cup) milk of choice
  • 1 tablespoon honey (or to taste)


Lavender cold foam:

Craft your lavender matcha latte:

  • This recipe requires a little planning. And by that I mean having your lavender milk ready when your lavender matcha latte craving kicks in! (Tip: make a larger batch to make it again for the week!)
  • Add milk to a jar and add your lavender, butterfly pea flowers and black currant powder. Close your jar and let it infuse in the fridge overnight so that the milk can take on the lavender flavors and turn purple. When you’re ready to make your latte, strain flowers from the milk and use a hand-held milk frother, whisk (or your matcha whisk), and whisk up and down to create a cold foam. Set aside.

 
Sift your matcha, so it is lump-free into a mug or small bowl. Add cold water and whisk until frothy. Add ice cubes and milk to a tall glass. Pour in your milk, then your frothed matcha. Add honey to taste and stir with a tall spoon. Spoon your lavender cold foam on top of your matcha. Sip and enjoy!
