Almond Spice Latte

A few months ago, I discovered I was sensitive to dairy, soy and gluten and I have completely taken them out of my diet for now. It’s been 3.5 months now and the one thing I miss most is lattes.

As I have written before, I have a love affair with coffee.

Unfortunately, Geneva has not yet discovered almond milk lattes, so sheer desperation forced me to create a way to make them at home in just a few minutes.

Like the iced coffee here, my Almond Spice Latte uses a lazy version of almond milk made by blending almond butter made only from ground almonds with water. To that I add some sweet spices and a little maple syrup to sweeten. You can also make a plainer version with just the almond butter, water and coffee or even replace the water for almond milk. The blending action helps create the froth that feels quite latte-like.

2 tbsp almond butter

1/4 cup hot water

2 tbsp maple syrup (more or less to taste)

1 cup hot coffee

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp allspice

1/2 tsp vanilla powder

Blend everything together for a few minutes then serve.

In my opinion, these coffee shops serve the best coffee in Geneva:

Le Boréal 

Le Fix 

Birdie Coffee 

Globus – the Italian coffee part in the middle of the food court

I would love to hear from you – where is the best coffee in Geneva for you?
