Iced Coconut Vanilla Latte

– vegan, raw, gluten-free, nut-free –

Not too long ago I published a post on cold-pressed coffee, and it has pretty much become a staple in my house.  It has really opened the doors to my desires to play around and create new drinks.  I will admit that if I allowed myself to… I could become highly addicted to those fancy dancy coffee drinks.


I have had a few in the past years and boy, is it a slippery slope!  It’s something that I have always wanted to avoid.  I try to use organic and fair-trade coffee.  Drinking cold-pressed coffee, for me, is a treat that I will allow myself and it has up to 75% less acid, which makes me feel even better about my choice in having it.

Now comes the fun part though!  Watch out over-priced Starbucks coffee shops; there is a new up and coming barista in town!  I may not be able to make pretty pictures in my mugs just yet, but give me time, allow me some room to experiment and I just might be able to create some latte art yet.  Never to old to learn new tricks.

It doesn’t take fancy art to make it taste good, so that’s a relief.  Today’s drink was a last-minute creation as Mom and I were heading out the door.   The poor woman, every time she comes to visit I get so excited to catch her up on all the new treats that I am creating. I hope you enjoy this special treat. Blessings, amie sue



  1. Combine all of the ingredients, including the ice, place the lid on tightly and give it a good shake.  Ta-da!  That’s it.  Not complicated at all.
  2. You can always double the measurements for a full glass… regardless of what you do, be prepared to ooh and aaaah over the cool swirls that the coconut milk creates as you pour it in.

    Delicious! I cold brew green tea for the same reason–and iced coffee is my fave summery treat! I will be making this allllllll summer long!

    and if you don’t drink coffee, I suppose it would be just as good with something like Pero or Roma!

    Your brain is a raw food amusement park. This looks soooo good! It is a blessing to be able to pull up healthy alternatives to favorites. Thank you for sharing your creations.

      I love that… “Your brain is a raw food amusement park.” I read that to my husband and he totally agreed and said that he loved that description. hehe Thank you for the wonderful comment. Merry Christmas. Blessings, amie sue

    This sounds delicious. I may be missing the point here and please correct me if I’ve missed the concept but isn’t all coffee roasted before we brew it (or cold press it in your case)? In which case it wouldn’t be ‘raw’?

      Hello Jenni,

      I am sorry that it took me a bit to respond to you. I have been on a “walk about” for the past 6 weeks (see blog posting). I am not fully integrating back into things but I wanted to start tackling some of the questions that have been collecting. :) All that to say, I appreciate your patience with me. :)

      Yes, coffee beans are roasted, therefore not raw. I will adjust the title. Thanks for pointing out my mistake. Blessings, amie sue

    Hi I was thinking, maybe could add a little date carmel, almond milk and ice and if you could come up with a vanilla syrup of some kink we could have a healthier version of iced carmel macciado

      Sounds delish Cali :) If you head over to the Community Discussion board there is a place for recipe development creations. Read the criteria, and then share this there. That way I can have all the requests in one spot. Time for bed. Sweet dreams. Have a happy weekend. amie sue

    Is there a particular brand of coffee that you like to use when you make this, and, do you like using Crio Bru with this recipe?

  7. Judy Groveman says:

    Thank you – sorry for the slow response back I didn’t click to be notified when you responded…I don’t drink coffee unless diluted down to 1/4 shot with a ton of water once in a while – even that puts me into mental addiction mode where ‘I’ve gotta have it’ and I don’t like being a slave to that state. But I make a cacao mocha smoothie that I love and I adore the Chococolate Mocha Cheesecake and probably anything mocha. It’s good to know that with the Bulletproof I won’t be getting moldy and treated beans.

    Thanks again, and SO looking forward to the additions to the website that are coming soon!! I know what I need – it’s a couple of freezers (not any time soon, unfortunately). I do believe that then I could start pulling it all together.

      No worries Judy :) I totally understand about your limits with coffee. It’s great that you know your temptations and how to avoid the pit falls of them.

      I too love anything mocha or coffee flavored. I grew up in a family of strong coffee drinkers. To this day my grandmother who is 85 years old, still runs a coffee pot from the moment she wakes till the time she turns in for the day. I never developed that taste, but coffee flavored stuff is another story. :)

      I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. They go by so quickly! Blessings, amie sue
