Cozy Cardamom Coconut Latte

Cozy Cardamom Coconut Latte


  • 2 cups plain soy milk
  • 1/3 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom + a pinch of whole pods if you have them
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne (or less if too spicy for you)
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 vanilla bean pod + seeds or splash of vanilla extract (optional)
  • Caffeine (choose one):
    3 black tea bags + 1/4 cup water
    1/2 – 2 cups strongly brewed coffee
    2 shots espresso


  1.  This recipe is all about the simmering of the liquid with the spices. Add all the base ingredients to a small sauce pot.
  2. Heat on medium for at least 15 minutes – allow to slowly simmer – but not burn.
  3. When the mixture has simmered to a slow boil for enough time you can add in your caffeine option (or drink as is for caffeine free – kid friendly!)

Note: strain out the cardamom seeds and cloves before serving (they are shown in photos just as presentation.)
Note: The base liquid will be quite rich – so you can choose to use as much or as little as you’d like. I made a black tea latte with about 1 part brewed black tea and 1 part creamy base and it was delicious. You can even pour over ice for a chilled latte.

Yields:  2 cups
