Latte non Caffe
A warm, creamy concoction that could put Starbucks out of business (...almost).
2 large, ripe bananas, mashed
1½ cup water, warmed to 115F
1 inch cut of an organic vanilla bean
½ tablespoon flaxseed
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch sea salt
1 pinch black pepper
4-5 drops of stevia
Put everything except the water into your blender. Warm the water (I used a kettle), and start by putting one cup into the blender. MIX MIX MIX! Taste the latte, and if it’s too creamy, add a bit more water (I usually end up adding 1 1/2 cups). Whir away in the blender until its nice and frothy.
1) Add a bit of spirulina for a St. Pattie’s themed green latte!
2) Omit stevia; add 1-2 tbsp maple syrup for a maple latte.
3) Omit spices; add 1 tbsp (or to taste) of powdered green tea for a green tea latte.
4) Make up your own; the possibilities are endless!
