Vegan Chaga Vanilla Cinnamon Latte
Caleb is an amazing smoothie and superfood alchemist. His concoctions are always new and exciting with sustainably sourced, organic and delicious ingredients. He’s a bit of a superfood freak, me, not so much. I’ve experimented with my share of super foods, but my body prefers to keep it simple most of the time. Most of the time, we eat pretty much the same with the exception of foods like cacao and maca and some other supplements which I don’t include in my diet. None the less, there are some pretty delicious super foods that I enjoy in small doses, and this latte isn’t something you’ll hear me turning down any time soon!
Watching Caleb make these types of drinks in the kitchen is so much fun! you can just tell he’s in his element, and when people are over they become fascinated by what he’s doing and end up learning a lot about food in the process.You may be one of the fans on the Young and Raw Facebook page
who requested we post our coffee alternatives, and if so, this my friend is just for you. And while I will say some of these ingredients are not going to be found in most regular super markets, they are easily accessible in most areas if you order them online here.
Our specialty recipes are a lot of fun, if you feel like playing in the kitchen and treating yourself to something out of the ordinary. I’m already prepared for people to comment on how expensive this drink is, but if you think about it you’re actually only spending a lump sum of money once to get all of the ingredients and once you have them they last for a very long time.
Instructions:Pour hot tea into your Vitamix or Blendtec bottle, add in powder ingredients including Chaga (I like to add them in while blending on lowest setting to avoid clumping on the sides) and blend on high for 30 seconds once you’ve placed the lid back on securely or longer until the Chaga blends in smoothly. Return to lowest speed setting, add coconut oil then finally add in Almond or other nut milk and the Pitted Date, blend on highest setting for 30-60 seconds, pour and enjoy!
