Recipe: Lavender Honey Iced Coffee (paleo-friendly)

recipe: Smoothies and Drinks

There’s nothing better than an iced latte in the scorching heat of summer. In the winter, we love warm peppermint mochas and pumpkin spice lattes, but that’s a little too rich for the heat. This time of year, we’re opting for a Lavender Honey Iced Latte. This drink is light, floral and best of all, dairy-free and refined-sugar-free to keep it healthy and indulgent at the same time! Give this easy recipe a go for the perfect summer drink!
