Minty Cold Brew Coconut Latte
Confession. I have never been to Philz Coffee. I know…but I hate standing in line and the lines are always so long as you have to wait for coffee to drip. I used to live right across the street from one for four years and every time I passed there was always a very long line. I kept saying nah, not today – next time over and over until I moved out of the city and ended up not going.
Now that it’s summer and very hot all I keep seeing in my Instagram feed is Philz Mint Mojito. I actually don’t know what is in it, but I imagine it’s very refreshing. This is my take on it with a twist. I cold brew my coffee in coconut water. It gives a nice sweetness to it with out adding any kind of sugar to it. I also added some hemp seeds and collagen to up the protein and nutrition factor.
1 Liter Pure Coconut Water (make sure there are no added sugars in it)
1/4 cup ground coffee
5 fresh mint leaves
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
1 scoop collagen (I use Vital Proteins Marine Collagen)
1/4 cup coconut milk (I like to use this as it gives it a nice roasted coconut flavor)
1 Cup Ice
Pour the coconut water into a pitcher and drop in the ground coffee, mix well until you see the coconut water turn brown. Place in the fridge overnight to steep.
Grab a blender and using a strainer to catch the coffee grinds pour in 8oz of your cold brew, add in the mint leaves, hemp seeds, collagen, coconut milk and Ice. Blend until it becomes nice and smooth. Pour into a cold glass with crushed ice and top with extra mint leaves. Enjoy!
You can make about 4 cups of the latte with the cold brew mixture. If you are making all four servings all at once quadruple the quantities from the mint leaves on wards. You can also leave out the hemp seeds and collagen if you do not have those ingredients in your pantry.
