This may look like a moo milk latte, but it isn't. It's an almond latte with foam and everything. And it rocks. I don't know if you could get the foam with a regular blender, but all you guys with a Vita-Mix or Blendtec—listen up! Here's how you do it:
Make your coffee or even tea for a tea latte.
Next add to your blender:
3/4 cup blanched almonds
2 tbsp Hemp Seeds
water up to about the 3.5 cup line
Blend. Blend. Blend ;-)
Strain into pitcher through Nut Milk Bag or cheesecloth.
Squeeze the nut milk bag or cheesecloth over the pitcher then set the almond meal aside.
(use the wet almond meal for cookies—pages 150 & 156 in my cookbook)
Add the nut milk back to the blender with about 4 pitted dates.
(Optional: soak the dates first if they are too dry)
See that nice foam now, on the top? Oh, yea.
Pour your coffee or tea into a mug and add your nut milk on top. I like about a 1:1 ratio of coffee to nut milk/foam.
