14. Lavender Thyme and White Chocolate Scones
The lavender and especially the white chocolate push these over the edge into a sweeter breakfast or afternoon coffee snack for me. But the subtle addition of thyme brings in just a little bit of unexpected savory. This time of year I tend to end up with extra thyme and rosemary in the refrigerator here and there. So that was part of the inspiration for adding it to this particular scone recipe.
15. Chewy White Chocolate Lavender Cookies

21. Lavender Milkshake
Lavender, with its own share of antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, is king of the aromatherapy world – even the smallest whiff sends a relaxation signal to the mind. This milkshake combines lavender and blueberries, as the two are a match made in heaven. Drink it as a refreshing mid-afternoon snack after some time in the sun or even as dessert after dinner.
22. Lavender Sorbet
A delicate and sweet and fancy dessert.

28. Earl Grey Lavender Chocolate Truffles
The truffles are perfectly smooth, mildly floral and citrusy from the lavender and Earl grey. You could infuse the cream with any of your favorite teas/herbs, but I love Earl grey and lavender.
