  • 2 cups plant-based milk
  • 4 dates
  • 1 tbsp maca
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt


  • Add all ingredients to a blender, and blend for 1 minute on high until the mixture is super creamy and smooth.
  • For a cold maca latte, serve as is or with a few cubes of ice. For a hot latte, froth with a coffee machine milk frother, or heat gently in a pan until hot but not boiling, and serve immediately sprinkled with cinnamon. Any leftover latte, pour into a glass bottle, seal tightly, and store in the fridge for 3 days.
