This dreamy cacao rose latte is a naturally sweetened homemade drink that is both paleo and vegan! Made with espresso or cold brew coffee, plant based milk, magnesium rich cacao powder, maple syrup, and just a hint of rose water.
For the coffee + cacao base
For the latte
- 6 ounces nut milk
Additional add in’s:
- MCT oil
- Collagen powder
Pour coffee base over ice and top with about 6 ounces of your favorite plant based milk.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
- For the best texture, use your high speed blender or handheld whisker (like this one) to whip together the coffee / cacao / rosewater base. If you don’t have either of those options available vigorously shake it together in a tightly lidded jar, or mix together with a whisk and a bowl.
- A good ratio is about 1/2 coffee base and 1/2 plant milk. Any less milk than that and the flavor might be too strong.
- This recipe is slightly sweetened with maple syrup, but feel free to adjust the level of sweetness or leave it out all together.
- Many natural food stores or mediterranean grocery store carry culinary rosewater. If you can’t find it in stores, you can buy my favorite brand here for about $7. One bottle will last you years so it’s a worthy investment!
