As the sun lazily rises a bit later, the drizzling rain returns, and a sharp chill fills the air, we know that fall has truly set in. The only thing that warms my very soul on days like these is cupping a hot mug of coffee in my jammie-jams. Yet, this season calls for anything but the average cup of joe. Here are some of the most creative and mouth-watering lattè creations you can make in the comfort of your own home, fuzzy socks and all.
Kathy from Happy Healthy Life has the answers to all our #basic prayers: a vegan PSL. The revered, autumnal Starbucks treat, sadly, contains dairy and is not suitable for ethical vegans (or dairy cows), leaving us in the dust. Luckily, plenty of bloggers have taken the task up on themselves to recreate the favorite at home. Kathy’s version even includes a delectable pumpkin foam to top your beverage.
When given the option, would you rather have one delicious cup of caffeinated cinnamon dolce goodness, or an entire supply of your own cinnamon dolce syrup for endless lattè-filled mornings? That’s what I thought. Cinnamon and brown sugar do not disappoint in this sweet and spicy recipe – just add your favorite non-dairy milk.
Another recipe just begging to be veganized with dairy-free butter and milk, this beverage captures the very essence of a fall apple harvest. You know you want to give it a try!
Maple + cardamom is the best kept secret in the lattè biz. Syrupy sweet meets a hint of deep spice in an absolutely perfect union. Warm your belly with this drink on the next drizzly fall morning.
For a super-special treat, try this toasty cup of espresso, frothed vegan milk, and a homemade caramel sauce made from dates, vanilla extract, and coconut milk. It’s like dessert at breakfast – brilliant!
