This yerba mate latte recipe uses whole milk and sugar for a rich texture and full flavor. Variations include vegan yerba mate lattes and honey yerba mate lattes.

What You'll Need

  • 5 ounces simmering water
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon loose-leaf yerba mate
  • Sugar or vanilla sugar (to taste)

How to Make It

  1. Combine the simmering water and the whole milk.
  2. Place the yerba mate into an in-cup infuser. Place the infuser into a mug and slowly pour the liquid over it, allowing the liquid to seep in as you would when using a manual ​drip coffee filter.
  3. Brew for four to six minutes, depending on desired strength.
  4. Add sugar to taste.
  5. Stir with a spoon, or froth with a frother for a more latte-like texture.
