Author Notes

Non-dairy folks, rejoice. This is a rich, creamy latte, which features a sweet and easy-to-make homemade cashew hemp milk. It's a perfect afternoon treat, and it even has that gorgeous, characteristic latte color. If you like your lattes a little sweet, try adding an extra tablespoon of maple syrup to the recipe. —Gena Hamshaw
