Is it fall yet? The temperature has dropped ten degree in Toronto in the middle of August and it’s making me super excited for fall. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good day of summer heat now and again but nothing compares to the fresh crisp air of a beautiful autumn day.
The colourful leaves, cool breeze, sweaters, ankle boots, and oh-so-tasty spiced drinks got me feeling all warm and fuzzy. Speaking of tasty spiced drinks, I’ve got just the drink to get you just as excited for Fall as I am! My spiced oat latte is a delicious and healthy addition to any time of day. Goodbye sugar loaded latte, hello healthy pick-me-up.

Too good to be true? Nope, this creamy spiced oat latte is the real deal friends. Talking about it is making me crave one right about now :D! Let’s get into this easy as 1, 2, 3 recipe, shall we?!
Spiced Oat Latte
- High Speed Blender
- Measuring Utensils
- 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
- 3 tbsp hemp hearts
- 5 medium medjool dates pitted
- 1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
- 1 inch cube fresh ginger or 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- pinch fine pink salt
- 2 cups filtered water room temperature
- Place all ingredients into a high speed blender (I
used a Vitamix). Blend on high for 2 minutes.
- Divide into two one-cup servings or pour into a
large mason jar and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- If you would like to add a shot of espresso, add the shot of espresso to your cup and then pour the blended spiced oat latte on top.
- This drink can be served at room temperature, warmed up, or chilled, although I prefer it at room temperature the most.
- I prefer using room temperature filtered water as I find it helps break down all the ingredients faster and better, especially the dates.
- I recommend using fresh ginger but ground ginger will work too.
- Dates and oats do not need pre-soaking for this recipe.
- Adjust spice ratio to preference if you prefer one spice more than the other.
