Feel free to skip to the recipe card if you’re ready to get right into it. We do cover common questions, tips, and tricks in the body of this post to keep reading if you’re wondering something!
- Sugar free lavender simple syrup – We create the sweet and floral base of this coffee drink with out homemade lavender simple syrup. It can be made up to 10 days in advance. This syrup is sugar free, to decrease the amount of carbs and sugar in this coffee drink.
- Honey – We combine the lavender simple with honey to create a sort of honey lavender syrup. We use just a small amount to add a delicious flavor and sweetness, without too many additional carbs or sugars.
- Espresso – You can add a couple shots espresso to this drink if you have an espresso machine. If you don’t have one, you can just brew some strongly brewed coffee. We actually don’t have an espresso machine anymore, so this is what we did. We’ll share more about how to make strong brewed coffee later on.
- Frothed half and half– You could just as easily use frothed milk, but if you haven’t noticed, we love a little pit of decadence in our recipes! Since we don’t have an espresso machine, we warmed our half and half in a small saucepan on the stove. Afterwards, we used a small hand frother to whip the half and half until it was nice and foamy. You could just as easily use any blender.
- Lavender buds – For garnish! What honey lavender lattes would be complete without these dainty little buds? They’re really pretty, but we don’t advise eating them, since they can be quite strong in taste and pungent.
How to Make A Honey Lavender Latte:
Add honey to a coffee mug or glass.
In the bottom of the glass, combine honey with lavender simple syrup to make a lavender honey syrup.
Add in the hot, freshly brewed coffee. Stir to dissolve the honey.
Heat, then froth your half and half or milk. Add to the coffee.
Garnish, and enjoy!
How To Make Strong Brewed Coffee:
To make strong brewed coffee, you simply add more grounds to the water than what you would normally use for coffee. For example, most regular drip coffee uses 2 tablespoons of coffee beans to every 1 cup of water (8 ounces). For strong brewed coffee, we add about 1 extra tablespoon to each cup of water. A few tips:
- Use a medium or darker roast coffee for a deep flavor.
- Fresh beans that you grind yourself are going to taste the best.
- Use a french press for the most control.

Is Honey Low Carb?
No, honey is not technically considered low carb. Since we are only use a small amount, we’re not too worried! We are personally a bit flexible with our low carb diet, so this is fine for us. One tablespoon of honey contains about 64 calories, and 17 grams of sugar and carbs. You can read more about honey nutrition and potential health benefits here.
How To Substitute For Fresh Lavender:
If you are lucky enough to have some fresh lavender on hand, definitely use it! You will probably need to use more than if you were using dried, however. The flavor of lavender intensifies as as it dries.
