Servings 2


  • 3 cups prepared coffee, hot
  • 1/4 cup cashews, raw or dry roasted, unsalted
  • 3 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger, ground
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, ground
  • Small pinch of clove, ground


  • Prepare your coffee using your preferred method (see notes).
  • Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender. Add the hot coffee. Blend until smooth, about 15-30 seconds. Taste and adjust as needed. Serve immediately.


Adjust the latte to taste. Add more or less dates, more spices, etc. I tried this recipe with 1/2 a teaspoon of ginger and it was good, but it definitely had a ginger kick.
You can add a small amount of steamed oat milk on top for extra creaminess. Just keep in mind that it will dilute the flavors.
I prepare the coffee using a French press or by making an Americano with our espresso machine. Use your preferred method. 
To make it nut-free, try using 2 tablespoons of sunflower seed butter instead of the cashews.
If your blender is on the weak side, try soaking the dates and cashews overnight. Or substitute them with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and 2 tablespoon of nut or seed butter to taste.
