You’ll Go Nuts For This Warm & Toasted Macadamia Nut Latte

I had originally wrote “go squirrely for-“ but decided I’m an adult and need to retain an image of maturity, not someone who thinks they’re the funniest person on Earth 😛

Macadamia nuts have always been my favourite. I remember I used to love going to my grandmas house because A) her house was STACKED with candy. And no one told me to stop eating (probably why I blew up like a balloon but whatever) And B) because she had this giant container of macadamia nuts (and also cause I love her and stuff).

I would sit on the kitchen floor and mow down for days every time I went over. Little did I know then at just how expensive these things were. I guess Grandma was too nice to tell me to stop eating the most expensive thing in her pantry. Fast forward a few years though and they’re still my favourite.

hope you love this recipe as much as me because as nice as it is to buy a syrup and call it good – it’s always way nicer for your body to eat real food, not some stuff out of a bottle. PS. my photos are a bit funny because I started to take some but then forgot what I was doing and just started drinking the latte out of habit haha 😛

Toasted Macadamia Nut Latte 

 

Ingredients:

1/8 Cup Macadamia Nuts

1 Cup Macadamia Nut Milk (or other nut milk but for this recipe I used macadamia)

2 Shots Of Espresso

1 TSP Coconut Oil

Sweetener (I used this cinnamon syrup)

Directions:

Soak nuts for about 2 hours leaving a couple out to be decorative. Next blend macadamia nuts into your milk. The nuts are pretty creamy already but you will get a texture in your milk. You can use a cheese strainer to get rid of access chunks or be like me and keep them then there for a crunch. You don’t have to blend the nuts with your milk if you are already using macadamia nut milk but I like to.

Steam milk in a frother or heat on a stove. If using a stove then turn to low heat and constantly stir to avoid burning. Next on a small pan toast a few crushed macadamia nuts over coconut oil. Your kitchen is going to smell amazing. This is also just to make the nuts toasted so you don’t need to do this step if you don’t want to.

Brew two espresso shots (I use this espresso machine) or make reallyyy strong coffee and measure out two shot glasses full. You can always add more coffee later.

Next pour the milk over the coffee. Grab your macadamia nuts that you were just toasting and sprinkle on top! Finally add sweetener of your choice! I used about two spoonful’s of my cinnamon syrup 🙂

And voila! A Toasty Macadamia Nut Latte 🙂

    Ooh this looks so good! It looks more like some fancy gourmet nut soup that a Michelin starred restaurant would serve up – I reckon you could serve it to guests at a dinner party and really blow their minds 🙂 xxx
