A while back I had given up coffee for a bit ( I know — shocking). But as life would have it I started drinking it again and then next thing you know here I am having it in my daily routine. My new favorite obsession is Chameleon Cold Brew. It’s concentrated so you don’t need to drink a lot and it’s perfect for on the go.
While most of the time I do drink my coffee black ( yes I am that person), more often than not, I like it to have it with a little hint of flavor. When it comes to Chameleon Cold Brew I usually pick the “black coffee” or “vanilla” flavored. For those of who you like chocolate you can opt for the mocha flavor.
Since I’ve been loving having the vanilla ready-to-drink cold brew as part of my morning routine, I decided to make the easiest and yummiest lavender vanilla cold brew recipe that you’ll ever have (no joke) with some homemade simple syrup.
If you love lavender as much as I do, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out how easy it is to make the simple syrup. You can add in the honey into the simple syrup or add it afterward to your liking. I chose to add it in after. Here’s what you’ll need for the simple syrup.
Lavender Simple Syrup
1 teaspoon fresh lavender flowers (I used Mountain Rose Herbs English Lavender Flowers)
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup water
Add all ingredients into a saucepan. Turn down the heat until the sugar dissolves. Simmer for about 5 minutes or until syrup coats the back of a spoon. Make sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t boil over or burn. Remove from heat and let it cool. It will harden as it cools. Allow syrup to cool completely before use.
Lavender Vanilla Cold Brew Recipe
-1/2 cup of vanilla Chameleon cold brew
-1/2 cup of flaxseed milk (almond, coconut or whatever milk you like)
-1 tsp lavender syrup
-1 tsp honey (or more if you like it sweet)
