This easy to make vegan Pandan cashew milk latte is a tasty alternative to coffee in the morning or for later in the day to help unwind and relax.
Aside from water, I usually gravitate towards coffee, especially on weekends, when I have more time to enjoy it. On weekdays I typically don’t have time to linger over coffee. Somehow, my consumption of coffee has gradually been going up. I used to have no more than four cups in the morning, but now that’s extended to espresso in the afternoon as well. As an alternative, I have wanted to branch out to another hot beverage on these chilly mornings. It’s time to try something different. Enter, a Pandan cashew milk latte!
How to make the latte
The Pandan leaf powder is similar to the color of matcha, a lovely emerald color. This recipe is adapted from the talented Crowded Kitchen. To make this coffee-free latte, I heated store-bought cashew milk on medium heat, occasionally stirred, until warmed. Then I took it off the heat, set it aside, and whisked in about a teaspoon of Pandan leaf powder, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, plus maple syrup.
How to froth the cashew milk
At this point, you may be wondering how to froth the latte, if you have never done it before. In the past, I used a small hand-held whisk. However, I haven’t looked back since I got a battery operated milk frother to get the bubbles going on the top. If you try this for yourself, be sure not to overfill your mug with your milk of choice to avoid spills. It’s surprising how powerful that little milk frother can be!
