Yes, I made an iced mocha latte recipe that is so amazing you will feel like you are drinking a high-end latte from a fancy coffee shop…but in the comfort of your own home and for a fraction of the price! Make your own cinnamon chip scones or mocha scones and you’ll feel extra fancy!

To be honest, I’m usually a straight-up, black coffee drinker (maybe with a touch of this healthy coffee creamer added). But every now and then I get a hankering for a mocha latte! So I made it my mission to create a dairy-free latte that is healthy, low in sugar, easy to make and insanely delicious…and this Mocha Latte is totally a winner folks.

So here are a few notes about making this mocha latte!

  • Blend the coconut milk. I recommend tossing the entire can of coconut milk (solid and liquid portions) for 15-20 seconds in the standard Vitamix container first. This ensures there will not be any lumps when it’s poured into the Aer Disc Container to make the mocha latte!
  • Brew the coffee. Use your favorite coffee beans and brew them using your favorite method. I make mine in the french press. Feel free to use your favorite coffee or espresso!
