Cinnamon “Latte”

Okay… this drink is my favorite… borderline obsession and I have it for breakfast on days I don’t have time for eggs. I also make it with decaf chai tea for an afternoon pick me up.

This recipe may seem familiar… I posted it about a year ago and SOMEHOW it got deleted from my website. It seems a sweet child MAY have deleted it when they were doing homework on my computer. Oh well.

I’ve chatted about the Cinnamon “Latte” (aka power protein morning special) a few times recently so I thought it needed to be reposted!

I gave up coffee almost two years ago (wow), but I’m not anti caffeine … just anti caffeine after noon. And tea is my caffeinated drink of choice if I’m going to have it. Last year everyone was on the Bulletproof coffee train so I wanted to figure out something similar I could enjoy!

I love that this creamy, frothy beverage is dairy free and packed with protein, collagen and healthy fats. It uses two of my favorite products: Bulletproof Brain Octane & Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. I swear the Brain Octane makes me move faster and more productively and the Collagen does wonders for hair and nails!

The cashew butter and a high-speed blender is the secret for the creamy, frothy goodness.

I drink it in my big 30 oz Yeti, but you could scale recipe back too.

Also… it is delightful with a peice of that Paleo Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Cinnamon “Latte”

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Place two Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Sunset tea bags in your Yeti or large mug. Pour boiling water over and allow to steep for 7-10 minutes.
  2. In the base of your high-powered blender (I have this Vitamix and LOVE it.) add your cashew butter, Bulletproof Brain Octane, Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, maple syrup, vanilla extract and cinnamon.
  3. Once your tea has steeped to your liking (I like it fairly flavorful!) remove tea bags and pour the tea into the blender carafe with other ingredients.
  4. Blend on high until combined and light in color with a frothy top.
  5. Pour back into Yeti or large mug, sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!

For a decaf afternoon treat I make it with these Chai tea bags instead!
