New Drink Alert: Starbucks Lavender Cream Oatmilk Matcha

Starbucks lavender cream oatmilk matcha

I’ll admit: I wasn’t running out the door to try this new spring drink added to the Starbucks menu. But, I’m nothing if not thorough and I wanted to try it, even if just so I could share it on the blog. 

So, on a rainy Tuesday, I drove over to my local Starbucks and ordered a grande Lavender Cream Oatmilk Matcha – iced, of course. Even when it’s freezing outside, coffee drinks are iced. Even matcha. 

Let’s dive into what I thought and how it tastes. I know it surprised me, so it might just surprise you, too. 

Starbucks Lavender Cream Oatmilk Matcha

I kept my expectations low, but you know what? I didn’t hate it. The lavender cream is actually very good! I can definitely imagine it on top of an iced vanilla latte, too, for a fun twist. If you’ve ever had a lavender infused coffee drink–and liked it–then this would certainly be your jam. 

Now, if you’re a matcha lover, then you’ll absolutely like this drink. I’m not a huge matcha fan, but even I like Starbucks matcha drinks, made with their custom matcha blend. The combination of the lavender cream cold foam with the matcha had a little bit of a Lucky Charms taste. You know that aftertaste that you get when you’re eating that delicious marshmallow cereal? I got a very similar vibe with this drink! Not a bad deal!

Lavender Cream Oatmilk Matcha: Ingredients

Starbucks uses their custom matcha blend and serve it with oatmilk over ice, then top it with sweet and subtle floral notes of lavender cream cold foam–which is made by mixing a milk blend (heavy cream and milk) mixed with vanilla syrup and lavender syrup, and then whipped to a soft whip consistency. 

The cold foam is thick enough to sit on top of the drink rather than blend in like creamer, so you get a little bit of it with each sip if you’re not using a straw. I’m a huge fan of cold foam and even have a post with a ton of cold foam recipes. Lavender isn’t on it (yet), but you could make it really easily with this recipe: 

  • 4 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp. milk of choice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla syrup
  • 1 tbsp. lavender syrup
  • Froth until soft set
