Herbal Coffee Latte with Vanilla Ice Cubes

Now that the gorgeous sunshine is warming up my days, I can finally start sipping my favorite iced treat again – Herbal Coffee Lattes with Vanilla Rooibos Ice Cubes! Deliciously caffeine-free, this creamy coffee alternative satisfies any craving for fancy lattes. With notes of roasted earth, caramel, and chocolate, this blend of roasted dandelion root, roasted chicory root, roasted carob, and maca powder is just too good. The Vanilla Rooibos ice cubes perfume the latte with floral vanilla bean flavor as they melt. They also add a good kick of antioxidants, vitamins, and trace minerals in addition to the nutrient rich herbal coffee blend. Perfect way to greet the morning sun!

 

Herbal Coffee Latte with Vanilla Rooibos Ice Cubes

 

Ingredients

- 8oz Herbal Coffee, brewed and chilled
- 12oz Vanilla Rooibos, brewed strong and frozen in an ice cube tray
- A splash of organic milk, cream, coconut milk, or alternative of your choice
- Raw local honey to taste

Directions

To make the cubes, measure 1oz of water for each compartment in your ice cube tray and use that amount of water plus 1 extra ounce to brew the Vanilla Rooibos tea. Fill your cube compartments with the strong tea and freeze until solid.

Next, brew 8oz of Herbal Coffee, sweeten to your liking with honey, and allow to cool. Fill a 16oz glass with several Vanilla Rooibos ice cubes and pour the cool Herbal Coffee over them. Add cream or nut milk of your choice, stir well, and sip away. This recipe is also wonderful with Firefly Chai tea!

If you want a boost of caffeine, add 1 teaspoon of green or black tea to the Herbal Coffee as you brew, or toss in 2 to 3 guarana seeds as you steep the tea.

Enjoy!
