Hemp Milk Latte

Hemp Milk LattesI’m a BIG coffee person. Or, latte person, to be more specific. So, when I started eliminating dairy in my diet, my morning latte was one area where I was unwilling to sacrifice on taste and quality.

Soy is great, but I started to get tired of it after a while, so I tried almond milk, then coconut milk. Both are delicious in other things, like smoothies, etc., but they tasted really watery to me in a latte. I just couldn’t. Nope. Not gonna work.

Someone suggested hemp milk, and I resisted for a while—it just sounded to hippie-ish or something, which was a dumb and total non-reason not to try it And when I finally did, that was it. There was no going back. It was thick, creamy, had a very neutral taste, and–most importantly—made great foam.  Hemp milk was everything this latte addict could have ever dreamed of.

If you haven’t tried it yet, you must. My favorite brand is Pacific, and I usually go for the unsweetened vanilla.

I use an espresso machine to whip it all up, but you can also heat the hemp milk on a stove top, and stir it with an equal amount of double-strength coffee.

And it is FANTASTIC in an iced latte. Again, just use an equal amount of double-strength coffee (chilled), and pour it all over ice.Iced latte

Perhaps with a little drizzle of maple syrup?

Also, those blueberries are drizzled with this cashew cream recipe and sprinkled with sliced almonds.

Enjoy!
