Yerba Mate Choco Latte
I found a raw yerba mate at a raw restaurant in Austin, Texas. I hadn't ever had it, but now that it's getting cooler, was in the mood for something like it. I love it and this morning decided to try something different, I came up with this and love it!
1 c. brewed yerba mate (1 c. warm water, 1 T. loose yerba mate, I use a French press)
1 c. sesame milk (any would work, but sesame is my favorite-recipe below)
1 heaping teaspoon raw cacaopowder
sweetner of choice to taste
sprinkle of cinnamon
a few grains of salt
3 c. water
1/3 c. sesame seeds
10 dates (more or less to suit your tastebuds)
few grains of salt
Blend all ingredients until well mixed and warmed by the action of the blender. Taste to adjust seasonings.
Sesame milk instructions:
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Strain through cheesecloth or use a nut milk bag. I love this milk, it doesn't separate and has a nice milk like body, more so than other milks I've made Plus sesame seeds have calcium.
