    Actually sounds pretty good but for some reason I have a hard time eating raw egg. Just the thought of having raw egg for some reason makes me queezy. Should I just buy the highest quality eggs out there to alleviate my fears of any remote chance of getting salmonella poisoning?

      you could whisk/blend egg whites with hot water first, then blend with remaining ingredients. egg really gives it the latte texture, and nice flavor

        I use almond milk A LOT, it's store bought though (Blue Diamond is probably my favorite). Some brands don't taste so good with coffee like Silk, so if you tried that brand you might want to try another. As for the migraines, I do believe vanillin (which is extracted from the vanilla bean) can cause migraines in sensitive people.

I realize she needs better willpower, but for the time being, does anyone have a good recipe for a vanilla latte with one of the alternative milks (coconut milk, almond, hemp, etc)?

        I have tried with store bought almond milk and it was not good. Have tried with coconut milk and it had a very watery taste to it..and of course the coconut overpowered it.

        I am going to try to make my own almond milk and see how that tastes after it gets steamed and has a shot of espresso in it. Not holding out hope though.

        I'm just curious if anyone has successfully found a good milk replacement in lattes. I've googled a few recipes and they didn't taste well. I'm not expecting it to taste exactly like a latte but close would be nice.
        Thanks for any tips guys!

          If Mom likes coconut then don't try and create a vanilla latte, instead say "Mom try this Coconut Vanilla Latte" I used this recently on someone. Instead of trying to sell them on a Paleo recipe I just said its a Coconut Mocha and made it with Paleo ingredients including some nice rich coconut milk. She loved it.

            I say let her drink her daily vanilla latte if that is what is stopping her. If she starts feeling better when she changes her other eating habits (dropping gluten/grains could be huge!) then she might want to drop the habit.

            I think right now it is just an excuse.

            I would try canned coconut milk instead of the refrigerated coconut milk substitute. Much creamier. The coconut will overpower the taste unless you go hog-wild on the vanilla. Still, my strong advice would be go Paleo and drink the latte made how she likes them.

              Have you tried mimicreme? (and don't whine about the ingredient list if you've been using store bought almond & coconut milk)

                If you think that your coconut milk is too watery, just let it sit in the fridge for a day or so, and DON'T shake the package before opening. The milk will separate from the water by doing this, and you'll end up with a hard cream/ice-cream textured coconut milk on top of the water. Unfortunately, most brands of store-bought coconut milk will have a lot of water added to it, so... yeah.
