In the summer I find I don't crave hot cocoa, that's so much more of a winter treat. However, sometimes I want a little something other than mint tea before bed and this lavender milk makes the perfect bedtime treat.
I recently went lavender picking which made me want to create lavender recipes!
You can typically use either blanched almonds or cashews for this recipe but I find the easiest way is to the use the RealFoodSource nut pastes. You simply need a nut milk bag or fine cheesecloth to strain the lavender and nut residue for a super smooth milk or you can also drink it unstrained if using the pastes.
Recipe: Lavender milk
- 1 tsp culinary lavender
- 2 tbs cashew or almond paste (or 4 tbs soaked cashew kernels)
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1 tsp coconut syrup or sugar (optional)
Blend until smooth (longer for kernels than the paste) and strain through a nut milk bag (or fine cheese cloth). Serve warm for a bedtime drink.
