Try This—Honey Lavender Latte

This is the perfect recipe for all of us coffee snobs out there that pair coffee with foods like it’s a fine wine. I made this honey lavender syrup that I was using for tea, and it’s super delicious, but being more of a coffee gal, I decided to whip up a latte and test this honey lavender syrup out. Holy moly! For some reason, the combination of milk, honey, and lavender really bring out the natural flavors of a strong cup of coffee. I, legit, felt like I was at a wine—I mean—coffee tasting! I was blown away when I tried this recipe. I really was skeptical about using honey as a sweetener for a latte, but this has totally changed my mind. Who knew that honey, lavender, and coffee could just scream fall and winter comfort. You must try this!

Honey Lavender Latte


  • 1c really strong coffee (espresso, if you’re gangsta)
  • 1/4c milk of your choice
  • 2tbsp honey lavender syrup


  • In a saucepan, froth your milk of choice with a whisk over medium heat (if you’re short on time, you can heat your milk in the microwave)
  • add about 2 tbsp of honey lavender syrup to the bottom of your coffee mug
  • pour in your coffee
  • top with frothed milk

The possibilities are endless with this honey lavender syrup. Don’t just stop at tea and lattes! You can add it to seltzer water for a refreshingly sweet drink that’s not loaded with sugar. Also, (and you can thank me later for this) you can use it to sweeten up your favorite homemade lemonade recipe. I might even try adding this to rice or some other savory dish like stir fry  in the near future! Oh man! I just thought of that last one!

Try This—Oatmeal Latte

So this happened. An Oatmeal Latte! I seriously can’t believe that I never thought to do this before. I love coffee and I love oatmeal. This recipe should’ve been a no-brainer. As it is, I only heard about it from a high school friend of mine who was back in New York on a short visit after living in Colorado for a long time. There’s a coffee shop in Breckenridge that has this on the menu. Gah! Yet another reason to visit Colorado! Anyway, this is delicious, you guys. Like D-E-licious…TRY THIS!!!

Oatmeal Latte Recipe


  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 (or 4!) shots of espresso
  • granola for topping


Place the oats and 1 1/2 cups of milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the salt and cinnamon. Stir to combine. In the meantime, froth or steam the remaining 1 cup of milk. Add about 3/4 cup of the steamed, frothed milk to the oats. Cook, stirring often, until the oats are super creamy and milky. Remove from heat. Stir in the remaining milk. Stir in the brown sugar and vanilla extract.

***The measurements are slightly different, but honestly the measurements are only a suggestion. It all depends on what consistency and sweetness you prefer. I have replaced the whole milk with soy milk a couple of the times that I made this. I’ve left out the cinnamon once or twice. Whatever. Point is— Play with your food, y’all!!! This one is almost impossible to mess up.
