If you still haven’t discovered the magic of using lavender in your kitchen, now’s the time to start. This unique herb can take all sorts of dishes to the next level once you learn to use it right and these five sweet flavor combos are a good place to start.

Lavender + Lemon

Combining lavender with lemons is always a good idea. Adding dried lavender leaves to your lemonade is the easiest way to give this combo a try, but you should also consider using it in lemon-based cookies and other desserts.

Lavender + Berries

Lavender can also bring out the best in your berries desserts, ranging from blueberry tarts and muffins to strawberry cupcakes and ice cream.

Lavender + Sugar

You can make lavender-infused sugar by simply mixing up some dried lavender leaves with your sugar to let it infuse the flavor and later use it in all sorts of delicious desserts.

Lavender + Honey

If eating sugar simply isn’t your thing and you prefer natural sweeteners, you’ll be happy to hear that honey and lavender perfectly complement each other.

Lavender + Crème Brûlée

The list of desserts you can make with lavender is pretty much endless, but crème brûlée is somewhere on top due to their French connection.
