Almond milk lattes are a popular go-to at the coffee shop, but if you'd like to learn how to make your own, you've found the perfect recipe!
What We Love about this Almond Milk Latte
Our chef created recipe is made from rooibos tea and is infused with rhodiola rosea root powder for reducing stress, combating fatigue, increasing mental performance and improving brain function.
Chef Ari chose rooibos tea for this unique latte recipe. Rooibos (pronounced ROY-boss) tea is a red herbal tea that comes from the fermented leaves of the Aspalathus linearis shrub, a plant native to South Africa. Here is what he had to say about the flavor pairings:
“Rhodiola root powder is very bitter and works great with any plant based milk, mellowing out the bitterness and bringing out the natural nutty flavors.
I sweetened with honey for its floral notes, but can be substituted with agave."
