Lavender Blueberry Chamomile Latte (recipe).

Lavender Blueberry Chamomile Latte.

I never thought the day would come…but I’m slowly turning in to my mother! My mom is a total tea fanatic. Major. I wish I could show you her teacup collection because you would freak out. They are everywhere in her home. Instead of counting sheep, I count her teacups. You get the point. Anyway, I didn't get into the whole tea-drinking thing until now. It started with a hot cup of tea at night to help me fall asleep and now I’ve turned to drinking it during the day, too. I'm hooked.
Trader Joe's Lavender Blueberry Almond Beverage

Chamomile was my gateway tea; it’s soothing and mild, and a perfect companion when I’m cozied up in my pajamas and watching an episode of Nailed It, which my husband just turned me on to. That show is hilarious – more on that later. After chamomile, I tried a chamomile lavender tea blend and got even more obsessed... and that’s what finally led me to create my new nighttime favorite: Lavender Blueberry Chamomile Latte.

And no, you don’t have to drink this only at night, but it's so soothing. It’s also a perfect spa day or self-care day drink – or just any old time of day drink. Because it’s incredibly delicious.

I’ve tried a few variations of this drink that I love, but this Lavender Blueberry Chamomile Latte recipe I’m posting today is the easiest and quickest to make. I make this latte with chamomile tea (Celestial Seasoning Chamomile Honey Vanilla Tea is perfect for this), Trader Joe’s Blueberry Lavender Almond Beverage, and a homemade lavender honey. The results? Herbal and honey heaven. I searched online and there a several lavender honey options to buy, but I got impatient and created my own instead with some culinary lavender and honey I purchased from the farmers market.

I discovered the Trader Joe’s Blueberry Lavender Almond Beverage a few weeks ago and it works so well with this drink. TJ’s also makes a matcha version that I can’t wait to try! Let me know if you have tried it in the comments section below. If you happen to own a milk frother, it will take the latte next level and add a foamy topper to your tea drink.

If you don’t have a milk frother, simply heat up the blueberry almond beverage and stir it in with your tea. Trader Joe’s also happened to be selling fresh Chamomile flowers on the day I was shopping so I used them as a garnish for this drink.

I hope you get a chance to make this, and stay tuned for my lavender and blueberry cocktail recipe!

Lavender Blueberry Chamomile Latte

Lavender Blueberry Chamomile Latte.

(makes 1 drink)


  • 1 1/3 cup hot water
  • 2 chamomile tea bags (I like Celestial Seasoning Honey Chamomile tea) or 2 tablespoons loose Chamomile tea
  • 3/4 oz lavender honey syrup (reduce if you like it less sweet)
  • 1/3 cup Trader Joe’s Blueberry Lavender Almond Beverage

  • Garnish:
  • fresh Chamomile flowers (optional)

  • Lavender Honey Syrup:

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup culinary lavender buds

  • *Bring honey, water, and lavender buds to a very low simmer for about 5 minutes. Turn off heat steep/cool for up to 2 hours (for more intense lavender flavor). Strain out lavender buds and keep in an air-tight container for up 1-2 weeks in the fridge.


    Steep tea in hot water for 3-5 minutes. In the meantime, add almond beverage to frother and froth until warm and foamy. If you don’t have a frother, warm in the microwave for 45 seconds or on stovetop until ready. Remove teabags and stir in lavender honey syrup and warm almond beverage. Enjoy!
