As some of you may know I had to give up drinking coffee a while back. I still have it occasionally here and there if I’m out somewhere and usually it’s an espresso, but I stopped buying and drinking coffee at home a while back. I do sometimes miss having it in the mornings, especially now that the weather is cooling down but luckily I also really love my tea!
Recently I was at our local supermarket and they had a whole bunch of different teas on sale so I grabbed some and now I have a cupboard full of teas to enjoy! My favourite lately has been roobios tea… which as it turns out is a great caffeine free alternative to coffee.
My latest obsession has been to make roobios tea lattes and now that pumpkin season is here I’ve been adding pumpkin spice to the mix and it tastes GREAT!
So if you’re even in the mood for something different or you’re trying to reduce your coffee intake then give this latte a shot!
Roobios Tea Latte
- 1 cup/240ml brewed roobios tea.
- 1 cup/240ml full fat coconut milk.
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice.
- 1 tsp vanilla extract.
- 1 tsp coconut sugar or sweetener of choice (add more if you want).
- Cinnamon to dust.
Get your roobios tea ready per the instructions on your chosen tea.
While the tea is brewing place your coconut milk in a saucepan and heat until warm but not boiling. Add in your pumpkin pie spice and coconut sugar or sweetener of choice. Mix to combine.
Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
Place brewed tea and the coconut milk mixture into a blender with a lid that has a removable vent I used my Vitamix.
Remove the vent from the lid and cover the top with a kitchen towel with one hand while you blend the mixture for about 30 seconds. You should end up with a nice foam on top.
Pour into your chosen cup and sprinkle with some cinnamon on top. Enjoy!
N.B. You could also try using almond milk in place of the coconut milk.
