Yes, you. Eco-conscious bride, you. You value our Earth and have kindness for the people that make what you buy. You use your purchasing power to make the world a better place. In appreciation for all that you do and all that you are, we have partnered with Vegan Vedas to bring you this awesome Vegan Rose Cardamom Latte!
The rose cardamom latte recipe below is inspired by the art of self-care that takes place before ceremony. For our brides-to-be, we want to offer this cup of love as a reminder to take care of the heart as you transition into this union with your beloved. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of the intimate relationship shared between love & food is the fragrance of a fully- bloomed rose.
The rose plant herself dates back over 35 million years. Her sweet essence and beauty influences poetry, art, botanical medicine, and of course- ceremony. May this cup of love be a reminder that marriage is not two halves uniting as one but two wholes celebrating one another’s beauty.
