Although coffee is always better than anything else, this Rooibos Latte functions beautifully when you want a warm and cozy drink but you shouldn't be drinking caffeine. My kids ask for it all the time. It is so frothy and comforting.
It is a few step process but the end result is a worthwhile treat.
For this recipe you will need:
1.5 cups of strong rooibos tea. (about 6 tsp. of loose leaf tea for 12 ounces of boiling water)
1.5 cups cream (milk, half and half, almond milk, or coconut milk will also do)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon honey
Optional: 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
Warm milk on medium heat until hot, but do not allow it to reach a boil. Remove from heat.
Add in the rest of the ingredients, except the tea, and whisk to combine.
Next add milk mixture and tea to a blender and blend until nice and frothy.
The Spiced Rooibos blend from Mama Jen's Teas and Bees would also work wonderfully in this recipe!
