This recipe is one of our absolute favorites! When Dr. Holly was expecting, I would make this for her ALL THE TIME! It has so many good fats in it, and it only takes about 5 minutes to make. I tend to like sweet and salty foods, and it is so hard to find snack foods as well as beverages that meet my cravings. So! I figured I would make my own. I started thinking about how I just love sea salt (and it is so healthy and good for you! Also, Dr. Holly has a video on why it is good for you! 10 of her fav. superfoods video. Here it is! :))
So I decided to mix a couple of ingredients together that sounded like they would taste caramel-like.....and honestly, I didn't have high hopes for this drink because I figured that the ingredients are way to simple. When we tried this drink for the first time, I almost cried....Not really. I'm being a bit dramatic. BUT! It was so true to the real deal that honestly, I dethroned the "real deal."
So here is my recipe for the most amazing and HEALTHY Sea Salt Caramel Latte:
Yields about 1-2 servings depending if your in a sharing mood
1 C Organic Almond Milk (make sure it does NOT contain Carrageenan)
1/8 tsp Pink Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
3 tbsp Grass Fed Butter
1 tbsp Organic Coconut Oil
2 tbsp Organic Grade B Maple Syrup
Directions are so easy.....Literally put all ingredients together in sauce pan until all butter and oil is melted. Whisk ingredients together until desired temperature. I would suggest to do this on medium low heat. You don't want to heat it too long because you will denature the grass fed butter.
