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

Hi Gena, thanks so much for this fantastic recipe! We switched to dairy free and didn't like the amount of sugar+other ingredients from buying soy milk + not much frothing in commercial almond milk. Found these raw cashews at Costco 2 weeks ago + made cacao coconut energy balls (yummy!) so this was my 2nd trial. Since I googled and found your recipe, loved that it had hemp seeds! Was too impatient to wait for the soaking (does it make a huge difference?) so only soaked for 15 min + put everything in Vitamix and hubby blended and voila, it was done ... easy peasy and yay, no straining of milk. Also halved the recipe and used with our cappucino maker + wow, yummy frothy lattes!! Hubby doesn't like as sweet so we may experiment and 1/2 the maple syrup ... or try raw honey?! Thanks again for making our weekend lattes another great thing to look forward to!!
