The Easiest Fresh Vanilla Lavender Iced Coffee Recipe

Good morning!  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far!  I had several questions about my lavender coffee I had earlier this week, so I decided to share the easiest fresh vanilla lavender iced coffee recipe with you!

Cooking with lavender has become quite the trend these days ( there may or may not be a cupcake coming soon with lavender… ).  I’ve been itching to try a lavender coffee because I’ve seen this trending  in bigger cities and especially on the West Coast.  As much as I would love to have a lavender field behind my house, I don’t, so I ordered my culinary lavender from Amazon.

It smelled beautiful!  I was so excited about it when it arrived.  It also has aromatherapy perks too, like calming.  I tried it on our crazy Wrigley and he didn’t like the smell so much. Blogger, Ashley Pletcher uses fresh vanilla, coffee ice cubes, and fresh lavender to create a Fresh Vanilla Iced Lavender Coffee Recipe.

This fresh vanilla lavender iced coffee is super easy to make.  You’ll want to make your coffee ice cubes ahead of time from leftover coffee ( if leftover coffee is a thing?)  I use the silicon cube trays so they are easier to get out.

While your coffee is brewing ( or steeping) I decided to use a french press for this coffee, add sugar, vanilla bean caviar,  water, and lavender to a pot and bring to a boil for a few minutes.  Let the simple syrup cool and thicken and then you will want to strain out the lavender buds.    Fill your glass with the coffee ice cubes and pour over your favorite coffee.   Blogger, Ashley Pletcher of Afternoon Espresso preps her frozen coffee ice cubes for her Fresh Vanilla Iced Lavender Coffee Recipe-4Blogger, Ashley Pletcher from Afternoon Espresso indulges in a Sunday coffee date with a Fresh Vanilla Iced Lavender Coffee Recipe.

Add some cream.  How beautiful does that look?Ashley Pletcher creates Fresh Vanilla Iced Lavender Coffee Recipe to keep cool in the summer months.

Then add as much as of the simple syrup as you want.  This would replace sugar you might use in your normal cup! You can obviously make this the same way with a hot coffee as well.  Just skip the ice cubes!   Enjoy!

Fresh Vanilla Lavender Ice Coffee Recipe


  • 1 Cup Coffee
    Coffee Ice Cubes ( Make ahead)
  • Leftover coffee
    Vanilla Lavender Simple Syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lavender
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean caviar ( from a whole vanilla bean)


  1. Brew your favorite coffee. While the coffee is brewing, add the sugar, water, lavender, and vanilla to a small pot and bring to a boil for about 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit and the mixture will begin to thicken. I like to use coffee ice cubes made from leftover coffee so my coffee doesn't get watered down. Place in a tall glass, pour over your coffee, add your cream, and as much simple syrup as you like! Enjoy!
