Coconut Cardamom Spiced Latte Holiday Coffee

Welcome to #12daysofChristmascoffee by Lovers.coffee.

For our 8th day of Christmas coffee, we want something healthy and vegan that is cozy for a holiday treat.

Here’s how to do a Vegan Coconut Cardamom Spiced Breakfast Latte by Kathy Patalsky

Ingredients

  • 2 cups plain soy milk
  • 1/3 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom + a pinch of whole pods if you have them
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne (or less if too spicy for you)
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup

optional: 1 vanilla bean pod + seeds or splash of vanilla extract

Caffeine (choose one):

  • 3 black tea bags + 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 – 2 cups strongly brewed coffee
  • 2 shots espresso

Instructions

  1. This recipe is all about the simmering of the liquid with the spices. Add all the base ingredients to a small sauce pot.
  2. Heat on medium for at least 15 minutes – allow to slowly simmer – but not burn.
  3. When the mixture has simmered to a slow boil for enough time you can add in your caffeine option (or drink as is for caffeine free – kid friendly!)

Note:

  • strain out the cardamom seeds and cloves before serving (they are shown in photos just as presentation.)
  • The base liquid will be quite rich – so you can choose to use as much or as little as you’d like. You can even pour over ice for a chilled latte.

This Vegan Coconut Cardamom Spiced Latte will fill the house with a blissful aroma of coconut holiday spice.
