Cranberry Is The New Pumpkin .. Cranberry Tea Latte

Cranberry Is The New Pumpkin 

Cranberry Tea Latte Recipe
Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan, Paleo, Vegetarian


I have been a huge Starbucks fan for a long time, especially the Pumpkin Latte's.  Unfortunately, once I had to remove dairy from diet, there went my Starbucks Pumpkin Latte's.  I have missed them and do make them dairy free at home from time to time.  Recently, I was at Barnes and Noble and saw this Harney and Sons Cranberry Autumn Tea and had to buy it!  


It has a nice mild cranberry taste to it and tastes delicious by itself.  I got to thinking what would it taste like with some added cranberry flavor, and decided to start playing around with some recipes.  I came up with this fantastic Cranberry Tea Latte.  The taste is absolutely amazing and guess what, it's super healthy!  Not only is it dairy free, but it's sugar free and only made with natural healthy ingredients.  Here you go, hope you like it!  


Recipe:  Cranberry Tea Latte
Recipe by:  Gluten Free Jersey Girl

Serving size 1-2

Ingredients:

1 or 2 Harney and Sons Cranberry Autumn Tea Bags, or any other cranberry flavored tea.
1/4 cup Organic Pure Cranberry Juice 
2 Tablespoons Date Lady Date Syrup or your favorite honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup almond milk
Dash of Cinnamon
Handful of cranberries (optional)
1/2 cup frothed almond milk 
Note:  If you do not have a frother, heat the almond milk and then cover in a ball jar.  Shake it up for a bit or mix in a high speed blender to get a little frothy.  

Instructions

First, Brew your tea.  


I like to add a handful of cranberries to my tea maker and let sit.

Next, make the cranberry syrup.

Blend together 
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup pure cranberry juice
dash of cinnamon
2 Tablespoons of date syrup or honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Please note, I suggest blending together first, or it may get lumpy when heating.

Once mixed together, heat on low heat until it thickens to a syrupy texture.
Let sit for a few minutes.

Froth your almond milk
Take 1 Tablespoon of your syrup and add to a tea cup.
Add in your brewed tea


Top with your frothed almond milk
Then drizzle some of the syrup on top 


Store any extra syrup in the refrigerator.  Syrup will harden, simply warm before using again.
