A warm, creamy concoction that could put Starbucks out of business (...almost).

Recipe Directions

Put everything except the water into your blender. Warm the water (I used a kettle), and start by putting one cup into the blender. MIX MIX MIX! Taste the latte, and if it’s too creamy, add a bit more water (I usually end up adding 1 1/2 cups). Whir away in the blender until its nice and frothy.
Variations 1) Add a bit of spirulina for a St. Pattie’s themed green latte! 2) Omit stevia; add 1-2 tbsp maple syrup for a maple latte. 3) Omit spices; add 1 tbsp (or to taste) of powdered green tea for a green tea latte. 4) Make up your own; the possibilities are endless!

I just broke my raw food virginity with this recipe. Whipped out the blender & mixed this stuff all up. It's fabulous! And so simple. The blend of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves is so yummy! Thanks for poppin' my... :)

I'll be honest, I really didn't check the temperature. I brought it just below boiling point and then let it sit for awhile while I got together the other ingredients. If it was over 115, then so be it, I'm not too worried about a little hot water. Mon46 is right, I included the temperature to be respectful of those who are very detail-oriented in their raw lifestyle.

laurajean, I think kathryn was being respectful in putting the recipe within "raw food guidelines." Obviously, people post recipes, and you can change them in whatever way you want. Personally, I still boil water for tea. I really don't like anything tepid, and feel comforted by that nice hot water.

I want to point out, though, kathrynintheraw, that my previous comment is not directed at you so much as I'm just voicing out loud more a question of where do we draw the line to fanaticism in the raw and living foods philosophy? Sometimes I think we just make it difficult for each other when we become so strict about every tiny detail of what is okay and what is not okay in this lifestyle. I think that just reinforces guilt and feelings for some people that this is not a long-term realistic lifestyle. My point is that this is and should be considered a lifestyle, not a religion.

Did you really check the temperature of your water to ensure it was 115 degrees? Are you afraid of killing your bananas or your dried herbs? I believe in raw and living foods for health, for life. And I understand temperature plays a role in protecting enzymes. But it just becomes exhausting to me to see obsessive worries about things like keeping the water that you add a couple of bananas and dried spices to under 115 degrees. It's just overkill for me.

This does look lovely and light! So refreshing to see something like this w/o almond milk or loaded down with a ton of nuts. A low-fat uncook book would be a breath of fresh air. Sign me up! I'll be your first customer. I do love eating raw and want to stay raw. If I had a few more creative tasty low fat recipes for weekends when the tempations always hit me, I'd be doing well

I have a pretty cheap (i.e. crappy blender) and just by having the flax in all along, it got ground up =)

what a fabulous idea! and with bananas, not nut mylk. how divine!
question: if you have a regular blender do you need to grind the flaxseed up before? (is the idea to have it ground?)
