“Hello, I just wanted to let you know that your culinary lavender is lovely!! I use it to make a shake called, Lavender-Vanilla Honey Shake. It’s really good stuff!! So you know I’ll be reordering your lavender quite often!! I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. I got the idea from a raw food restaurant over here in Brooklyn, NY called Rockin’ Raw. Then figured out the measurements for the recipe.”
Lavender-Vanilla Honey Shake
2 T Raw Almond Butter
2 T Raw Honey
3 Vanilla Beans (add vanilla flavor if more vanilla is desired)
1 tray of small ice cubes
1/2 cup water (more or less to desired thickness)
1 tsp Lavender
Blend until smooth. Serve in tall glass and garnish with Lavender
Variation: Almond milk can be made with soaked almonds and
water in a blender. Then strain it through a nut milk bag. Omit the
1/2 cup of water in recipe above if using almond milk.
My Husband Loves it!!
I’m packing up web orders, and shipping them out, to arrive in time for V-Day. Then I’ll write a few Valentine notes to send off to family, and friends, especially my Grand-children 🙂
This is one of my favorite love poems by, Elizabeth Barrett Browning:
Love me sweet,
With all thou art
Feeling, thinking, seeing;
Love me in the lightest part,
Love me in full being.
