Toasted Coconut Latte full of rich coffee and coconut flavor, dairy free but still ultra creamy, naturally sweetened, and ready for your sipping pleasure in 5 minutes.
Oh, Toasted Coconut Latte how we love you.
Made with an easy homemade toasted coconut milk which is a lot like regular coconut milk with its creamy texture, tropical flavor, and dairy-free amazingness but also a bit nutty and toasty and deep. Which is blended with dates for natural sweetness that lend a welcomed caramel flavor. Then we add in rich espresso and are left with a drink that is pure summer magic!
Toasty, nutty, creamy, caramely magic!
How to make a Toasted Coconut Latte:
First, we have to whip up our toasted coconut milk. Yes, homemade milk. Yes, you can do it!
I opt for pre-toasted coconut flakes to save time, but you can also toast any ol’ flakes in the oven for the same effect.
Then take that coconut, cover it with water, and pop it into the fridge overnight. The coconut will soften and become blender ready while you sleep.
In the AM transfer your coconut to the blender and watch as a creamy dreamy milk appears before your eyes. Its luscious texture, toasty smell, and big coconut flavor…. its love at first sip.
Then pop in a shot or two of espresso (strong brewed coffee works too!) and sip away!
Even more latte love!
