  • blender
  • mug


  • 1 1/4 cups soy milk or oat or pea


  • Choose soy milk. Soy milk works the best for vegan milk foam. Next best options, full-bodied oat or pea milk.
  • Choose fridge-stable versions of soy milk instead of shelf stable.
  • Warm up your milk in either the microwave or in a small soup pot on the stove.
  • Milk temperature: Not too hot! Super hot milk is a bit trickier to foam up.
  • After warm, pour the milk into a blender and blend for a minute or two. Add the sweetener and any spices (like cinnamon or vanilla) to this step. Turn off the blender and let the milk sit for a minute before using. Foam will rise to the top. (This last part is optional, but can help you see if your foam has formed!)
  • Prepare your espresso or matcha or coffee or tea shot, in your empty mug while the blender works.
  • Pour the foamy milk into the mug, top with some coconut sugar if desired and serve hot.
  • Bonus fluffing step: heat the finished latte in a microwave for 10-20 seconds for extra fluff!
