Maitake Vanilla- Almond Frozen Latte
Serves 2 This power- packed latte is a better- for- you alternative to coffee shop frozen drinks. If your blender’s not superpowerful, use 1 cup crushed ice instead of the ice cubes. For extra indulgence, add 2 Tbs. of cacao nibs before blending, or top with vegan or regular whipped cream. Tone it down with decaffeinated espresso, or turn it into breakfast with a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
11/2 cups vanilla almond milk 2 shots espresso, cooled, or 3– 4 tsp. instant espresso powder 20 drops liquid maitake extract, or 1 Tbs. maitake or other mushroom powder 1 Tbs. agave or coconut sugar, or to taste 1 tsp. vanilla extract 2 cups ice cubes Chocolate sauce ( optional)
1. Combine almond milk, espresso, mushroom powder, agave or sugar, and vanilla extract in blender. Pulse to mix. Add ice, and purée on high until mixture is smooth and creamy.
2. Transfer to two serving glasses, top with chocolate sauce if using, and serve immediately.
