Cold Brew Cacao Latte

I recently came across the most amazing Cold Brew Cacao Latte Recipe by The Artfuld Esperado which I just had to share! Oh and did I mention that it's dairy and caffeine free?! I know...we may have just hit the jackpot! 
Ingredients:
– 1/2 cup raw macadamia nuts
– 1/2 cup blanched almonds
– 1/2 cup cacao nibs or crushed unrefined cacao
– 1 cinnamon stick (optional)
– 750 ml filtered water
– 1 large jug or jar
– 1 nut milk bag 

Instructions:
1. Start by giving a quick rinse to your nuts, run them under tap water for a minute or so.
2. Place all ingredients in a large jug or jar and soak them for a minimum of 12 hours.
3. After soaking, place the contents of the jar in your blender and blend on high speed for 3-5 minutes until mix is very smooth.
4. Strain the mix using a nut milk bag or fine mesh making sure to press the pulp to really squeeze all the milk out. You can save the nut “pulp” and use it for cookies, smoothies or yogurt.
5. Place strained brew in the fridge for a couple hour to chill, serve cold over ice or as is – make sure to shake the jar before serving as the milk solids can separate, and sweeten to taste.


Suggested sweeteners:
– Maple syrup: rich and wintery
– Honey: subtle floral sweetness
– Agave syrup: neutral sweetness


Gabriel described this as the hybrid of all nut milks and I think he's right! Check out more of his amazing creations over on www.theartfuldesperado.com
