Chamomile Rose Water Coconut Milk Latte

The sweet, fragrant smell of rose water is one of my favourite scents. I will experiment with rose water any chance I get — whether it’s in a facial toner, cream, dessert or tea! Traditionally used in Persian cuisine, rose water is known for its anti-aging properties and ability to calm your mind. With the colder weather settling in, I find myself yearning for warming drinks at all hours of the day. To mix up my go-to matcha latte routine, I wanted to create a calming latte that I could unwind with.  Given its sedative qualities, chamomile is a good fit for a soothing drink to calm the nerves, prevent insomnia and to have a more peaceful sleep. Mixed with rose water, pure vanilla extract and coconut oil, this Chamomile Rose Water Coconut Milk Latte provides pure comfort as we transition from fall to winter weather. I hope you’ll enjoy this recipe!

    May I ask where to get this rose water? Is it the one people use also on the skin? Is that drinkable?

      Good question! In Toronto, I find rose water in fine food grocery shops or Middle Eastern shops. You can also find it on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2gmfrjW — it is the same as used on the skin; rose petals are edible and have been steam distilled to form rose water. You only need a small portion in your recipes 1 tsp – 1 tbsp. Hope that helps!
