Notes:

  • For the best texture, use your high-speed blender or handheld whisker to whip together the coffee / cacao / rosewater base. If you don’t have either of those options available, vigorously shake it together in a tightly lidded jar or mix together with a whisk and a bowl.
  • A good ratio is about 1/2 coffee base and 1/2 plant milk. Any less milk than that and the flavor might be too strong.
  • This recipe is slightly sweetened with maple syrup, but feel free to adjust the level of sweetness or leave it out all together.
