6 Cool Dairy-Free Latte and Mocha Indulgences

Creamy dairy-free coffee beverages and desserts may seem like an oxymoron, but these days, your options for dairy-free latte and mocha treats abound. For a taste, enjoy these easy recipes and premade delights. All are gluten-free, soy-free, and vegan coffee drinks, too!

Just Open and Sip: Cococcinos

We got our first taste of these delights at Expo West, and my household has been loving them for a midday caffeine boost ever since. The Mocha flavor is a sweeter, intensely flavored cocoa and coffee delight, while the Latte is focused on the creamy side, yet tastes surprisingly clean without a notable coconut flavor.

Cool and Creamy: Dairy-Free Latte Shake Recipe

Those sweet Cococcinos make an amazing base for a spoon-able vegan shake. A frozen banana thickens and adds both sweetness and nutrition. I choose some other decadent ingredients for flavor, protein, and healthy fats.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Place the banana, Cococcino, nut (or seed) butter, protein or supplement powder in a blender, and puree until smooth. If it is a little too thick for your blender, add additional drizzles of Cococcino until it just gets moving.
  2. Taste test and add stevia or your sweetener of choice, to taste, if desired. I find that a touch of stevia just makes the flavors pop.
  3. Pour or spoon into a glass (it should be nice and thick!). Top with a drizzle or dollop of the thick part of the coconut milk (cream) and chocolate shavings, if you so desire.

Dessert De-Light: Just Java Ice Cream Bars

You may have spotted these on Go Dairy Free just recently, when I updated our full review of So Delicious Minis Ice Cream Bars. These little 80 calorie caffeinated gems are SO rich that just one completely satisfies, and the pure flavor was a big hit with my coffee-loving household.
