Mornings don't start until you get your Vanilla Latte coffee fixed. Traditionally lattes can be unhealthy. One large latte has nearly one-third of women's daily recommended fat intake. Furthermore, If you add a shot of vanilla, that's 380 calories in every large serving, including 14.5 grams of fat. So that's we made this healthy vegan vanilla latte. It's made with almond milk, coconut milk, sugar-free maple syrup, ginger, and vanilla beans: no sugary vanilla shots here, just fresh vanilla flavor. So get your morning started right with this vanilla latte.

 

What Does A Vanilla Latte Taste Like?

Vanilla latte has a sweet yet creamy flavor. On its own, without vanilla or sweetener, it would not be very pleasant. However, the additional ingredients add a sweet taste that balances out the bitterness of the coffee perfectly. 

 

Is A Vanilla Latte Hot Or Cold?

Vanilla latte can be served hot or cold; it depends on your preference. Since this is a vanilla latte, it is served hot. However, you let the vanilla latte cool down and operate it over a glass of ice to make an iced vanilla latte. 

 

How Much Caffeine Is In A Vanilla Latte?

There are 1 1/2-2 ounces of coffee on average in every latte. So, for example, this vanilla latte contains 2 cups of espresso and 1 1/2 cups of milk, roughly 1/4 cup or 2 ounces of espresso per latte.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Espresso (espresso is ideal, but you can also use a strongly-brewed coffee)

     

  • 3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

     

  • 3/4 cup Full-Fat Coconut Milk

     

  • 1/3 cup Sugar-Free Maple Syrup (I used lakanto sugar-free maple syrup)

     

  • 1 Vanilla Bean

     

  • 1-inch Ginger (optional)

     

  • 1 teaspoon Chai Powder (optional)

Instructions

In a medium saucepan, add the espresso, almond milk, coconut milk, sugar-free maple syrup, vanilla bean, and ginger if using. 

Place the vanilla latte over medium-high heat for 5 minutes until it is hot and slightly foamy on the top.  

Remove the ginger and vanilla bean from the latte. You can cut the vanilla bean open, scrape the seeds out using the back of a knife and add it to the latte to increase its vanilla flavor. Discard the ginger and vanilla bean seeds after scraping their seeds from the vanilla bean. 

 

To a blender, carefully add the vanilla latte and blend it on high until it is foamy. 

 

Divide the vanilla latte between four mugs and add 1/4 teaspoon of chai powder on top before serving.
