I usually gravitate towards coffee, especially on weekends when I have more time to enjoy it. On weekdays though, I typically don't have time to linger over coffee. However, my consumption of coffee has gradually been going up, and I wanted to find a delicious alternative, which led me to making this soothing latte.
What is pandan?
Pandan is a tropical plant native to Southeast Asia and South Asia. Its leaves are long, upright, and spiky. It is sweet with a grassy aroma. It is typically used in both sweet and savory dishes in Southeast Asian and South Asian cooking. You can learn more about pandan here.
Here's what you need to make this drink:
- Cashew milk or other plant-based milk
- Pandan leaf powder or matcha
- Maple syrup
- Vanilla extract
- Rose petals, optional
🥄 How to make the Pandan Cashew Milk Latte
To make this coffee-free latte, you will heat cashew milk on low to medium heat in a small saucepan with high sides.
Using a small mesh strainer, sift the Pandan powder and cinnamon into the plant milk. Whisk and add the maple syrup and vanilla extract until everything is gently heated through.
Take the saucepan off the heat, and aerate the beverage with a milk frother for 30 seconds if desired. Pour into your favorite cup and garnish with rose petals, if you wish.
💭 Top tips
Be sure not to overfill your mug with your milk of choice to avoid spills. It's surprising how powerful that little milk frother can be!
Keep an eye on your saucepan because the mixture can suddenly foam up when overheated and overflow.
