I love lattes. I am not a vegan, though, so I usually make them with milk and sugar.
When I saw this, my first thought was, “Can they pull this off? Let’s see.” And honestly, I didn’t think they could do it. I didn’t think 07I was going to like it. I considered making it with milk instead of water, but decided to give it a chance as a vegan option. After all, I just got home from a lecture on The Plant Based Diet.
The first sip bowled me over. Thick. Creamy. And super, super sweet. Almost TOO sweet for me, so if you love sugar this will be just right. If you don’t like lots of sugar, I really think you can just add extra water and get away with it. I did use ten ounces of 190F water, and they call for 8-10 ounces. I could drink the whole thing straight down and smack my lips right now. I am using restraint and sharing.
The mango flavor is just right. The coconut sugar is delightful. This is worth a try for latte lovers, and vegans – rejoice!
