You need an afternoon coffee pick-me-up, but you don't want all the sugar. Try a Lectin Free Gourmet Iced Lavender Latte. It's easy to make.
Try a Lectin Free Gourmet Iced Lavender Latte. This delicious, fragrant coffee drink will both energize you and relieve stress. Made with espresso, coconut and almond milks and a special Lectin Free Gourmet zero-sugar lavender simple syrup, you'll crave one every day.
1 T Golden Monk Fruit Sweetener
1 T Water
1 Sprig Fresh Lavender (flower tops only)
1 Shot Espresso
1/2 C Unsweetened Coconut Milk
1/2 C Unsweetened Almond Milk
Start by making the Lectin Free Gourmet lavender simple syrup. Put monk fruit, water and lavender in a small sauce pan. Heat on high, swirling until it boils. Remove from heat and let steep for 5 minutes. This is enough syrup for one drink, but you can multiply the recipe to serve more or to store for future use. Just pop in microwave for a few seconds before using.
While your simple syrup is steeping, make a basic iced latte. Fill a tall glass with ice. Add the coconut and almond milks and pour in your espresso shot. I use a Nespresso machine. Now sweeten your latte with the lavender simple syrup. Garnish with a fresh lavender flower.
Aromatic lavender can help promote calmness and wellness. It's also said to help reduce stress, anxiety, and possibly even mild pain.
Enjoy the rest of your day !
