Lavender Moon Milk

Lavender Moon Milk My recipe today is Lavender Moon Milk. This is a twist on an earl grey tea latte. Earl grey tea is steeped with honey and vanilla extract and blended with steamed almond milk. If you prefer coconut, soy or regular cow's milk that will work too. What makes this drink special is the real edible lavender buds that are brewed into the tea latte.

Ingredients

  • 3 oz of almond milk
  • 3 oz of boiling water
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp edible lavender buds
  • 2 tsp of honey.
  • 1 decaf Earl Grey tea bag

Instructions

  1. Fill the cup halfway with boiling water and add the tea bag. Let it steep while you steam the milk. I used the steamer function on our espresso maker to steam the milk.
  2. Add the honey and vanilla to the water, stir gently and then add the steamed milk. Use a mesh tea strainer filled with dried, edible lavender buds to infuse the tea with lavender.
  3. Let the strainer steep the lavender buds for a few minutes and it's ready to drink.

Recipe Notes

Lavender is known for its relaxation properties and ability to promote sleep. I grow my own in my garden but you can usually find it for sale at your local health food store.
