Cozy drinks season is back and I have a new vegan latte to share with you. This salted caramel latte is sweetened with dates and uses both cashews and coconut milk for a creamy and frothy drink.

What you need: Coffee, coconut milk (or oat milk), Medjool dates, cashews, vanilla and salt.

How to Make a Vegan Salted Caramel Latte

First, start by preparing your coffee. You can use your preferred method. I personally make it using a French press or I make a long shot espresso using an espresso machine.

Next, add dates, cashews, coconut milk, vanilla, salt and the prepared coffee in a blender. Blend it all until you get a creamy, frothy drink.

Notes on Substitutions
  • You can use plain oat milk instead of coconut milk if preferred.
  • If you have a weaker blender, you might have cashew and date pieces left in your latte. In this case, you can replace the dates with maple syrup and the cashews with 1-2 tablespoons of cashew butter. You won’t get the same caramel-like flavor, but it still results in a good creamy latte.
  • Feel free to add more or less dates to adjust the sweetness. The dates do add a caramel-like flavor. I strongly encourage using Medjool dates for the best results, however, regular dates will work too. Simply add more to taste.

Notes

You can prepare your coffee using your method of choice. I prepare it either with a French press or I make a long shot espresso using an espresso machine until I get 1 1/2 cup.
You can use plain oat milk instead of coconut milk if preferred.
This recipe works best with a strong blender, such as a Vitamix or Blendtec. If you have a weaker blender, you might have cashew and date pieces left in your latte. Instead, you can replace the dates with maple syrup to taste and the cashews with 1-2 tablespoons of cashew butter. This will affect the flavor, but it does result in a good, creamy vegan latte.
Be careful when removing the lid of your blender as there will be some steam.
Feel free to add more or less dates to adjust the sweetness. The dates do add a caramel-like flavor. I strongly encourage using Medjool dates for the best results, however, regular dates will work too. Simply add more to taste.
