Blue Spirulina Vanilla Iced Latte Recipe

This impressive layered iced latte is deceptively easy to make! It's the perfect refreshing drink to help you cool down on a hot summer's day and is sure to impress whoever you make it for! It also uses both our Blue Spirulina and Shroom Coffee for a double hit of health benefits. We'll drink to that!

 

Why would I add Blue Spirulina to my iced latte?

Spirulina is a blue-green algae which grows naturally in lakes and fresh water. It is thought to be one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world, thanks to its high concentration of Vitamins, Minerals, Fibre, Protein and Omega-3.

Our Blue Spirulina Powder is a natural, chemical-free extract of spirulina. It is incredibly sustainable and ocean friendly. Adding blue spirulina to recipes such as this one brings a multitude of nutrients and health benefits, as well as a naturally vivid blue pigment!

A little goes a long way and you need just a pinch to create this stunning Blue Spirulina Vanilla Iced Latte. As spirulina contains protein, this also helps you to get a light and fluffy froth! You can learn all about our Blue Spirulina and its health benefits in our article below:

How can I make a frothy iced coffee?

For this recipe you will need an electric milk frother or machine, rather than a handheld one - which works best with warm milk. Simply choose the cold setting and let the machine do the hard work for you!

If you don't have an electric milk frother, don't worry! You can still enjoy the delicious flavours and nutritious health benefits of this recipe, just without the three-tiered effect!

 

What is the best coffee to use in a vanilla latte?

We've used our original Shroom Coffee for this recipe. It maintains it's great taste once cooled and has a smooth flavour which works perfectly with the light, frothy milk and vanilla!

Shroom Coffee is a blend of Organic Arabica coffee with dual-extracted Lion's Mane, Chaga and Cordyceps mushrooms. They're added for their health benefits (not their flavour!) and are great for immune support, cognitive function, digestive health and also reducing inflammation.
