Destress with these Creamy Lavender Matcha and Hot Chocolate Recipes
Need a bit of a pick-me-up this week? Well, we’ve got lavender playing double duty in two creamy beverages to help you out!

If you’re looking for something to keep you alert yet clam, yet energized, look no further– try this creamy Lavender Matcha Latte! Or, double up your lavender dosage and reward yourself after a busy day with a sweet treat– our Lavender Hot Chocolate! Both contain simple ingredient lists too, because why add more stress to a day you’ve already been dragging those feet. 

These two recipes below also contain powerful ingredients like lavender, matcha, cacao, and coconut oil. Here are some of their top benefits: 

Lavender:

  • calming effects
  • anti-fungal properties

Matcha:

  • high in antioxidants which are good for the prevention of disease
  • a good alternative to coffee if you find coffee makes you too jittery but you still want that energy boost
  • contains chlorophyll which is known for its detoxification properties

Coconut Oil:

  • can support healthy cholesterol levels and decrease inflammation in the body
  • improves energy levels 
  • supports digestion and hormonal health
  • antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal 
  • supports healthy brain function 
  • supports oral health 

Cacao:

  • contains fiber which can help with blood sugar levels
  • contains minerals like potassium and magnesium
  • also contains antioxidants which support overall health 

Lavender Matcha Latte:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup coconut milk or plant-based milk of choice (or the amount of your mug)
  • 1 tsp matcha
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tbsp lavender 

Process:

1. Heat the milk in a saucepan on medium until hot but not boil. Remove from heat.

2. Place lavender in an infuser and let steep for 5+ minutes until you can smell the lavender 

3. Add the other ingredients and blend in a blender or use a hand milk frother 

4. Serve
