Author Notes

This latte employs plant-based power from the likes of matcha and maca, which mingle with coconut milk and almond milk or creamer. For this version, I used Califia Farms Almondmilk Creamer to make it just a little richer. —Laura Wright | The First Mess

What You'll Need
  • 12 ounces Califia Farms Unsweetened Almondmilk or Almondmilk Creamer
  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon tahini
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • maple syrup, to taste
  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring the liquid to a strong simmer, whisking a couple times. Once it’s quite warm, carefully pour the liquid into a blender and slowly blend the mixture until thoroughly combined and frothy. Garnish the drink with a little sprinkle of sesame seeds of you like.

I made this drink this morning. Made my own cashew milk (cashews, water, vanilla, dates) then just threw everything in the blender & let it run (didn't heat on stove). It was very creamy, a different taste from maca & tahini, but I did like it. A nice alternative to coffee.
