There are so many coffee beverages to try that I think this life is really not enough for that but still, I try. The first time I had an Almond butter date Latte, it was in a cafe at a hill station in India.
Honestly, I am not much of a latte fan. But when I saw almond butter and cinnamon in the ingredient list, I was just captured. The flavor of Medjool dates with coffee is just enough to get you high.
Basically, the oat milk with almond butter makes this drink creamy. The cinnamon, cayenne, vanilla, and orange just go so well together that it’s a heaven’s brew, trust me.
If I have to define this latte drink then, I would say it is sweet and spicy. It does not contain any sweetener, Medjool dates are what make this drink sweet and they taste like nectar.
Also, the date latte is gluten-free and dairy-free so your body is going to love it. Plus it makes a good drink for you if you are a vegan.

- You can use black tea instead of black coffee if you are not a coffee person.
- You can prepare Almond butter at home as well if you are unable to find it.
- Do use a high-power blender as blending dates is a bit difficult.
- You can adjust the flavor of this beverage by increasing or decreasing the amount of dates, cinnamon, and pepper.
All in all, this sweet beverage will put a smile on your face. Additionally, you cannot deny the benefits of Medjool dates.
You can enjoy a date latte during snowfall and monsoon. I personally enjoy it more during winters with snow falling out everywhere.
Almond date latte goes well with chocolate chip cookies which have the bitterness of dark chocolates.
Moreover, you can try this beverage with any savoury pastry of your choice. I will strongly suggest you go with something that has dark chocolate in it.
