Iced Yerba Mate Cashew Latte

Created in partnership with the National Institute for Argentine Yerba Mate.

Okay, there’s just something about plants grown in South America. They’re sort of #winning when it comes to producing delicious, healthy foods.

Coffee beans? Cacao trees? Quinoa? 

And now, yerba mate. If you haven’t heard of it, yerba mate is a tea made from the leaves of the rainforest mate tree. In Argentina, basically everyone drinks it, socially, by passing around a cup called a “gourd” and sipping through a “bombilla,” which is essentially a fancy straw.

Not only does mate have some pick-me-up effects a la java, it’s chock full of vitamins and minerals. Turn it into a sweet, nutty latte and you may never drink a “typical” one again.




  • Steep the yerba mate bag in the warm water. Remove tea bag.
  • Add steeped Argentinian Yerba Mate beverage to a blender.
  • To the same blender, add the soaked cashews, cold water, cinnamon, and honey.
  • Blend until completely smooth.
  • To a clean glass, add blended latte, ice, and enjoy!


Argentinian Yerba Mate is super high in powerful antioxidants (it has even more than green tea!) and is linked to reduced inflammation, and when paired with freshly made cashew milk, it makes the perfect chilled, slightly-sweet bev for morning sipping.
