Vegan Latte Recipes: Vanilla Rose Latte


Vegan Latte Recipes: Vanilla Rose Latte
My first ever latte experience was in college. There was a small, indie coffee shop a short walk from the main drag of my university that served all manner of interesting drinks, 24/7. One day, I stopped in and my interest was piqued by the rose latte that was advertised; after one sip, I was a latte convert. This is my own rendition on that nostalgic beverage, complete with an easy homemade hemp milk that can be made in just 30 seconds (no straining required!). If you can’t find rose water, the coffee will still be delicious, but I do recommend giving it a shot–a little goes a long way!

    I bet some maca powder would be a good addition to this, instead of espresso perhaps? Can’t wait to try it!

    • You know, I’ve never purchased maca powder before (the price tag always scares me away!). I’ve definitely had it in prepared drinks, but I don’t even really know what it tastes like on it’s own. If you add it, let me know how it is!
