Iced Nana Latte and Iced Nana Mocha

It’s no secret that I love coffee and my days are fueled by coffee more than ever lately. Iced Nana Lattes are one of my favorites to enjoy before barre or working out but I’ve been enjoying them more at other times too. With everything going on lately, not as planned, I feel like my tank is running off nothing but coffee and my tummy, and body, hasn’t been loving it so instead of my daily Americanos and espresso I’ve been making more lattes, these Iced Nana Lattes with cold brew (less acidic).

I can’t tell you how many times and ways I’ve enjoyed this Iced Nana Latte switching up milks, add-ins, ect. While I love chocolate vanilla lattes are usually more my thing but I did whip up an Iced Nana Mocha for my husband and I do enjoy one on occasion to mix things up.

I’ve posted Iced Nana Lattes countless times on Instagram Stories and after being asked for the recipe, and posting lots of recipes on there I decided it was time for a post. As I said there are a number of variations and I’ll try to get them all noted but it’s kind of like all the bullet proof coffee craze where everyone has their favorite version. I also vary it depending on what I have on hand and my needs. If I’m doing a longer workout I might add a little coconut oil or maca, if it’s in the afternoon as a pick me up maybe adding in a little collagen, reshi, or ashwagandha. Time of day I’ll vary the adaptogens I might add. Needing more protein I might make it with a protein milk like Ripple, or depending on what I have on hand and my mood I’ll use almond or coconut milk. For just a treat I may go with a Nana Nitro Cold Brew Version, using a thick and rich homemade milk, cold-pressed, or Toasted Coconut Coconut Almond Milk! Yes if you’re keeping up the options are endless! I would say deciding is usually the hardest thing but it really isn’t as I usually know what my body needs and what I want at the time.

You may be thinking what coffee and bananas? Yes a little crazy but not really and not only does it give me energy for those early morning workouts but my tummy also handles it better than just grabbing coffee. Layering it makes it pretty and doesn’t really take extra time but if you’re in a hurry you can just blend it all together too instead of pouring your espresso or cold brew over top.

Instructions
  1. Brew espresso if making.

  3. Fill a glass 2/3 with ice and pour banana milk mixture over the ice.
  4. Pour espresso or cold brew over top. Sprinkle with cacao or cinnamon if desired. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

I have used a variety of non dairy milks liking the thicker coconut milks and almond milks best such as homemade, Juice So Good cold-pressed Cashew Milk, New Barn Barista Milk, MALK, or for added protein Ripple. I have also used and like So Delicious Coconut Milk and Calfia Farms Toasted Coconut Coconut Almond Milk and when available Calfia Horchata.

To make an Iced Nana Mocha add 2 tablespoons of chocolate sauce/syrup. To make a Iced Nana Nitro Cold Brew use 1/2 a frozen banana and pour Nitro Cold Brew (I like Calfia Farms) over top.

For a little extra something add a pinch of cinnamon and or cacao.

Additional add-ins: gelatinized maca, reshi, ashwagandha, collagen (Vital Proteins), coconut or MCT oil.

Iced Nana Lattes are creamy and a delicious way to start the day! #coffee #vegan Click To Tweet
