Looking for a simple and unique tasty drink that is, BONUS – nourishing?! You’ve got it! I wanted to share my Mid-morning Vegan Latte Recipe that doubles as a snack when you’re craving something sweet in the afternoon- or anytime, really! :)
You may have heard me talk about lattes from your local coffeehouse before. The average latte is made with coffee, dairy milk, vanilla “flavors” (an artificial mix of who knows what), tons of sugarand (if that wasn’t already enough!), whipped cream (moooore dairy). These are all Beauty Detox no-no’s! Of course, sometimes you want to have a treat with some sugar, but if you want to feel and look your most beautiful and healthy, “regular” lattes are not drinks you should ingest often.
Ok, so then what? You- and me- need something! I totally understand. Why? Because I feel the exact same way. I like a little nip of something yummy and sweet, and sometimes I want something different from dark chocolate (or along with it!).
So here’s what I got for you. It’s a really easy substitute for a satisfying dessert drink, and has the added benefits of beauty fat, including omega-3 fatty acids, which promotes great circulation, balanced moods, reduced inflammation and being great for smooth skin!
As an optional ingredient, you can even had a pinch of cinnamon, which is great for helping your body metabolize sugar and boosting metabolism.
NOTE: When making this recipe, It’s important not to try to steep the tea in the hemp milk because it doesn’t work well- you have to steep it in the hot water first. Be sure to follow the steps below!
