Perfect for a hot summer day or a relaxing afternoon, this drink is not only delicious but also easy to make at home. Let’s dive into the recipe so you can recreate this soothing delight in your own kitchen.

Ingredients

Lavender Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dried culinary lavender

Matcha Mixture

  • 2 teaspoons Soar Organics Matcha Powder (We recommend Ceremonial or Everyday grades)
  • 1/4 cup hot water (not boiling, about 175°F or 80°C)

Assembling the Drink

  • 1 cup oat milk (or your preferred plant-based milk)
  • Ice cubes
  • 1-2 tablespoons lavender syrup (adjust to taste)
  • Optional: Lavender buds for garnish

Instructions

Step 1: Making the Lavender Syrup

  1. Combine Ingredients: In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of water and 1 cup of granulated sugar. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Add Lavender: Once the sugar is dissolved, add 2 tablespoons of dried culinary lavender to the saucepan.
  3. Simmer: Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes.
  4. Cool and Strain: Remove the saucepan from heat and let the syrup steep for another 10 minutes. Strain out the lavender buds and let the syrup cool completely. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

Step 2: Preparing the Matcha

  1. Mix Matcha Powder: In a small bowl, sift 2 teaspoons of matcha powder to remove any clumps.
  2. Add Hot Water: Pour 1/4 cup of hot water over the matcha powder. Use a bamboo whisk (chasen) or a regular whisk to whisk the matcha in a zigzag motion until it becomes frothy and well combined.

Step 3: Assembling the Drink

  1. Fill the Glass: Fill a tall glass with ice cubes.
  2. Add Lavender Syrup: Pour 1-2 tablespoons of the lavender syrup over the ice. Adjust the amount based on your desired level of sweetness and floral flavor.
  3. Pour Oat Milk: Add 1 cup of oat milk to the glass.
  4. Add Matcha: Slowly pour the prepared matcha over the oat milk, creating a beautiful layered effect.
  5. Stir and Garnish: Stir gently to combine. For an extra touch, garnish with a few lavender buds on top.

Step 4: Enjoy!

Take a moment to appreciate the calming green hue mixed with the lavender's soft purple, then take a sip and enjoy the blend of earthy matcha, creamy oat milk, and delicate lavender. This Iced Lavender Cream Oat Matcha is a perfect companion for a peaceful break in your day.

Tips and Variations

  • Adjust Sweetness: If you prefer a sweeter drink, add more lavender syrup.
  • Milk Alternatives: Feel free to use almond milk, soy milk, or any other plant-based milk of your choice.
  • Cold Brew Option: For a quicker version, use cold-brew matcha by mixing matcha powder with cold water and shaking vigorously in a jar.
