I know as soon as fall hits everyone is pumpkin spice this and pumpkin spice that. Not me though. I like pumpkin spice but when those leaves start turning that golden shade all I want is cardamom. GIVE ME ALL THE CARDAMOM. Seriously though, I have an ongoing list of cardamom flavoured items to add to this blog. I need to hold myself back or this will just become the cardamom blog.
I have only ever tried the green cardamom but there is black cardamom as well. Used extensively in Indian cuisine (ummm hello masala chai) this spice is a member of the ginger family so has some of the same healing benefits. It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for digestive issues along with other aromatic spices like fennel and coriander.
I don’t know if I can actually call this recipe a latte as there is not actual espresso and I didn’t steam the milk, but I’m going to call it a latte anyways. Maybe more of an elixir? No matter what it is called it is warming, delicious and satisfies my cardamom craving. I hope it satisfies yours as well.
Let me know if you tried the recipe. Rate it and tag your photos #sweetlizzy on Instagram! Enjoy!

This warming latte is spiced with cardamom (nom!) and a hint of rose. Feel free to use an espresso machine to froth up this cozy drink. If you’re like me just throw it in the ol’ pot on the stove and voila!
