Lavender Chai Latte

Lavender is not only fragrant and pretty—it is edible. Lavender can offer a floral, herbal taste and aroma to many recipes, such as this delicately spiced beverage. Filled with chai tea, coffee, soymilk, dried lavender flowers and just a touch of agave, you can enjoy this relaxing beverage as a much healthier option over many coffee shop latte drinks, which are often laden with sugar and high-fat additions that are high in calories.

  • 1-2 Tbsp. dried lavender flowers
  • 1 chai tea bag
  • 1 Tbsp. agave nectar
