Lavender Vanilla Vegan Coffee Creamer

Once the weather starts getting a little warm, I abandon all affection for wintery, spicy recipes, and quickly move into craving light, springy food and drink. This includes all things lavender, and lavender coffee drinks are no exception. If you have never had a lavender latte or other lavender flavored drink, I can not urge you enough to give it a try. They are light and fragrant, and this recipe is just sweet enough without being over powering. You can find dried culinary lavender at many grocery stores, allowing you to get your lavender coffee fix quickly, and affordably while you patiently wait on spring!
