Matcha Lavender Icing for Cinnamon Rolls

August 10, 2020

Matcha in the mornings. It's a given, right? So it's only natural you'd crave our illustrator BFF Artjaden's twist on a favorite: cinnamon rolls with Mizuba Matcha lavender icing!
Matcha Cinnamon Rolls
Inspired by Artjaden's all-time favorite Mizuba drink from Good Coffee, in Portland, Oregon, the lavender matcha latte, she put together this easy to follow matcha lavender icing recipe and just amped it up a little with her favorite flavors. Enjoy! 

Step 1: Matcha Lavender Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 tablespoon fresh lavender blossoms
1 cup sugar
Combine all ingredients into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Pour the syrup into a small jar using a mesh strainer to remove the blossoms. Let cool. 

Step 2: Make the icing! 
1.5 cup confectioner's sugar
1.5 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons coconut milk
2 tablespoons (or to taste) lavender simple syrup

How-to: Mix all ingredients into a bowl, and stir until smooth! SO easy!
Spread the icing on cinnamon rolls, English muffins, pancakes or waffles. Enjoy your #MatchaMoment!
