Since the beginning of time (aka since we started this wonderful company), traditional lattes have been one of our favorite drinks. Is there really anything quite as nice as a Deruta mug filled with a shot of espresso and topped with steamed milk? Well… we’ve really been digging our Tea & Tisane collection lately—so we combined our love of latte with our Golden Tumeric Herbal Tisane to create this lat-tea. Find the recipe below from our Tea Consultant, Alexis Siemons.
La Colombe Golden Milk Latte
This golden hued soothing sip is rich (thank you, coconut oil), warming, spiced and just the perfect amount of sweet. And because it’s caffeine free you can sip it from sunrise to sunset. For a spicier sip add a pinch of ground or freshly diced ginger with the sachet and cinnamon sticks.
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or coconut milk)
- 1 La Colombe Golden Turmeric Sachet
- 1 cinnamon stick
- pinch of sea salt
- pinch of freshly ground black peppercorns
- ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 ¼ teaspoons coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon honey
Heat milk over medium heat until it just comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and add the Golden Turmeric Sachet, cinnamon stock, pepper, salt and vanilla extract. Let steep over low heat for 7 minutes. Remove the sachet and cinnamon stick. Stir in the coconut oil and honey until dissolved. Whisk until frothy, pour into a cup and enjoy while warm (or if you have a milk frother you can froth the beverage in your cup). For the frothiest texture, carefully add steeped almond milk, coconut oil and honey into a blender, blend until very frothy, and then pour the warm frothed latte into your cup.
