Pumpkin Spice Yerba Mate Latte Recipe
Serves: 1 large cup
  • 1 Tablespoon Yerba Matte leaves, plus ½ cup hot water
  • 1 teaspoon sweetener + more to taste, I used date syrup*
  • 1 cup unsweetened milk of choice, I used almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ginger, or ½ Tablespoon freshly grated
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon cloves
  1. Steep the tea in the ½ cup water along with the sweetener in a small cup or bowl. Let steep for 5 minutes.
  2. While the tea is steeping, heat 1 cup almond milk. Once heated, pour into a glass blender.
  3. Pour the steeped tea through a strainer. Add it to the glass blender along with the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Blend.
  4. Pour the tea blend into a cup. Sprinkle cinnamon on top
• I used 1 teaspoon of sweetener because it allows the earthy flavor of the latte to shine through. However feel free to add sweetener to taste!

• If you like a cap of frothed milk, heat ¾ cup milk and add to the glass blender and put the remaining ¼ cup milk into a frother. Top your latte with the frothed milk.

• Spices are flexible. For example, if you like it spicier add more cloves.
