Lavender Latte
Need a morning pick me up? Why not try a Lavender latte?

Lavender Latte Recipe
*makes two lattes

Your favourite coffee beans (preferably not pre-ground) – enough to make 4 shots of espresso
1 – 1 1/2 cups of low-fat milk
1 teaspoon of dried lavender flowers

Depending on your coffee maker, you’ll want to make 4 shots of espresso (2 per mug). Add the milk and dried lavender flowers to a small saucepan and gently warm it over very low heat. You don’t want to boil the milk, just get it to a warm temperature. Once warmed, remove the milk from the heat and let the lavender flowers steep in it for about 5-10 minutes. Obviously, the longer you steep the lavender, the stronger the flavour will be. Use a strainer to strain out the dried lavender leaves and toss them. After you’ve made your espresso (or while it’s dripping, depending on your machine), steam the strained milk. The nozzle of your steaming wand should just barely dip into the milk. You don’t want to just plunge it in there; it will scorch the milk.

Divide the espresso between two mugs. Pour in the milk and scoop any extra foam on top. Serve with sugar, to taste.
