Blender Mocha Cashew Latte
A simple latte made in the blender. This mocha is made creamy thanks to cashews and is sweetened with dates! It makes for a perfect cozy, yet nutritious drink during the colder months.
- 1 1/2 cup brewed coffee
- 2 tablespoons cashews, raw or dry roasted, unsalted
- 1-2 large and soft Medjool dates, pitted
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, unsweetened
- Small pinch of salt
This recipe works best with a high-speed 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.
I find this recipe sweet enough with 1 date. However, if you want a sweeter drink, try it with 2. You can also use a liquid sweetener to taste if preferred.
