Have you tried using essential oils in your cooking and food preparation? Edible essential oils are now becoming available and Young Living Essential Oils has a range of them to offer. Today we bring you three recipes that include the use of their Lavender Vitality™ essential oil; they’re simple and tasty!

Honey-Lavender Lemonade

Ingredients:

  • 6 lemons, juiced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 drops Lavender Vitality™ essential oil
  • Iced water, about 10 cups
  • Lavender sprigs, optional

All you really have to do is to mix the first 4 ingredients in a large glass pitcher and dilute with iced water to taste. Then stir well and serve. Lavender sprigs are optional, but they do add a nice aesthetic to the pitcher. This is perfect drink to quench the mid-day thirst from a hot day.

Homemade Blueberry-lavender Ice Cream

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut cream
  • 4 teaspoons Blue Agave
  • 4 drops Lavender Vitality™ essential oil
  • Up to ⅓ cup coconut water

Method:

  1. Line a small casserole dish or large container with wax paper or parchment paper.
  2. Add frozen blueberries, coconut cream, Lavender Vitality™, and agave to a high-powered blender or food processor.
  3. Pulse ingredients together, adding coconut water 1 tablespoon at a time to help the ingredients blend together smoothly. (Note: Be careful not to add too much liquid or your ice cream will become too soft and mushy).
  4. Pour blended ingredients into the prepared dish (in step 1), cover, and freeze for 4 hours.

Once done, scoop into bowls and garnish with your favourite ingredient. Enjoy when you’re looking for a refreshing, guilt-free treat on a hot summer day.

Lavender Hot Chocolate

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups unsweetened almond, dairy, or other milk of your choice
  • 8 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 teaspoons honey, or more to taste
  • 4 drops Lavender Vitality™ essential oil

Method:

  1. Heat 4 cups of milk in a saucepan on medium-high heat.
  2. Add 8 tablespoons unsweetened raw cocoa, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 4 teaspoons honey; whisk until smooth.
  3. When warm, remove from heat and stir in 4 drops Lavender Vitality essential oil.
  4. Drink it warm of let it cool, it’s up to you! But we prefer it on a cool night to warm our bodies up.

And that’s it! It’s no 3-in-1 but it’s definitely healthier and more fulfilling in one cup. Young Living Essential Oils have more than just lavender essential oils for cooking, check them out today!
