It’s official. We’re married!

We got married this past Saturday and I can honestly say that it was the best day of my life. Everything went perfectly (or at least almost perfectly) and I can’t stop smiling. We spent last night on the plane and we officially landed in Barcelona. Our adventure begins!

As we’re waiting for our bus at the airport, I’m just stopping by to share this cozy drink I created this summer for you guys.

If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you may know by now how much I love my cozy drinks. Coffee, matcha, lattes, anything. This latte is a simple blender drink that takes less than 5 minutes to prepare.

A Few Notes on the Recipe:

First, as with all my cashew latte recipes, you do need a good blender to get the creamy finish. If your blender is on the weaker side, you may have some small date and cashew pieces floating in your drink. You don’t want that. Your options: You can try soaking your cashews overnight and letting your dates soak in boiling water for 5 minutes. You can also strain the latte using a fine mesh sieve before drinking.

Second, if you’re not a fan of dates, you can easily use maple syrup or honey instead, to taste.

Finally, feel free to adjust the flavours to taste. Add more or less cocoa or sweetener as needed. This recipe is written how I like it, but can easily be adjusted!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup brewed coffee

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • Small pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.

Notes

This recipe works best with a high-speed blender. With my Vitamix, I don’t have any pieces of dates or cashews in my drink. A blendtec should work too. I don’t recommend it with a weaker blender. If you do try it, you can always soak the dates and cashews or strain the drink with a fine mesh sieve.
I find this recipe sweet enough with 1 date. However, if you want a sweeter drink, try it with 2. You can also use a liquid sweetener to taste if preferred.
