Sweeten Your Breakfast with Herbal Syrup: Vanilla Syrup with Lavender

Enjoy the health benefits of vanilla bean and lavender with this sweet herbal syrup recipe infused with lavender leaves and vanilla bean extract.

| December/January 1998


• 1 1/2 cups sugar
• 4 cups water
• 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 1/4 cup coarsely chopped lavender leaves and flowers

1. Boil the sugar, water and vanilla bean gently for 5 minutes.

2. Remove the vanilla bean and stir in the vanilla extract and lavender. Cool and strain. If you don’t like the little vanilla flecks left in the syrup, line the strainer with cheesecloth to filter them out.

• Use rose petals or other edible flowers in place of the lavender.

• In a blender, process 2 tablespoons syrup, 2/3 cup cold strong coffee and 1/3 cup milk with about a cup of ice until frothy for a refreshing coffee drink.
