Almond, Coconut, Cashew Latte

This latte is blended with almond milk, coconut oil and cashews to be a creamy, warm treat on the coldest mornings.

This creamy almond coconut cashew coffee will be your new chilly morning wake-me-up drink that is dairy free. Healthy almond milk is blended and thickened with coconut oil, cashews and a little honey for a creamy coffee creamer. This is Bulletproof coffee meets healthy latte.

Is there anything better than being able to get a creamy delicious coffee drink right from your own kitchen? Look no further! This is my new cold weather morning drink that healthy and creamy all at the same time. The milk just on its own is so good. It’s so thick and comforting, you could enjoy a hot mugful before bed.

Bulletproof coffee is made with fatty butter and if you don’t know what it is, Google it. Who wants butter in their coffee? This recipe makes a lovely and really delicious creamer that is dairy free, sugar free and so much better for you than any creamer you can buy.

There are other benefits that go along with this coffee drink, a little protein from the cashews and almond milk. Coconut oil is easier to digest and can strengthen your immune system which is important this time of year. As well as helping control blood sugar, this is the best way to enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee right from your kitchen.

You can see from this closeup below how creamy and foamy it is, just like your favorite latte.

Cashews are added to the creamer for a variety of reasons. They are first soaked in hot water, this is to help them soften and blend easily and soaking also breaks down the phytic acid and neutralize the enzymes to make them easier to digest, in addition, they add a little protein and help thicken the milk.

I added a little honey as as I think a slight sweetness enhances the coconut flavor. You can omit or add to taste.

This drink is also a time saver. You don’t have to go through these steps every morning. Make a large batch Sunday night, refrigerate and you can just warm your coffee cup in the microwave the next morning. This would also make a delicious chilled coffee drink for the warmer mornings.

Hi, my name is Janette, originally from England, currently living in Southern California. I'm the author, recipe developer, photographer and resident redhead behind Culinary Ginger. I grew up in a household with 4 siblings where my mother cooked a from scratch meal for us every night. I took an interest at an early age in cooking and learned a lot by helping and watching my mother in the kitchen. Today that tradition is carried on my household in that I also like to cook every night. I like to use only fresh ingredients, no processed or pre-packaged foods are allowed in my kitchen. I like to try new recipes and adapt current ones from all cuisines. In addition to all of this, I am fortunate that I get to travel with my husband for business and this allows me to explore and document my findings here for you to read and hopefully, take something with you.
