Blender Mocha Cashew Latte
A cozy blender mocha cashew latte. This mocha is made creamy thanks to cashews and is sweetened with dates. All the ingredients are blended together to make a simple latte in less than 5 minutes. This comforting and nutritious drink is perfect for the colder months.
- 1 1/2 cup brewed coffee
- 2 tablespoons cashews, raw or dry roasted, unsalted
- 1-2 large Medjool dates, pitted
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder (or more to taste)
- Small pinch of salt
Prepare the coffee using your preferred method. I use a French press or an espresso maker and keep it running until I get 1 1/2 cups.
Add all of the ingredients to a high-speed blender, along with the warm coffee. Blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.
Be careful when removing the blender lid as there will be steam.
This recipe works best with a strong blender. With my Vitamix, I don't have any pieces of dates or cashews in my drink. A Blendtec should work too. I don't recommend it with a weaker blender. If you do try it, you can always soak the dates and cashews or strain the drink with a fine mesh sieve. That being said, the results won't be the same.
You can use a liquid sweetener to taste instead of dates if preferred. Maple syrup would work well.
Feel free to add more cocoa powder for a stronger chocolate flavor.
