Coffee is one of the toughest things to forgo while on a candida diet. Fear not, my Yerba Mate Latte is here to the rescue! Now you can indulge without fear with this delicious coffee alternative.
One of the questions I get asked most often from clients on a Candida diet is if they can have their morning coffee? Sadly, it’s best to avoid coffee completely in the first couple of months while cleansing. But don’t worry, I’ve created this super yummy Yerba Mate Latte with YOU in mind!

Yerba Mate Latte Recipe
Hot Yerba Mate Latte
- 1 and 1/2 cups filtered water
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond coconut or hemp milk
- 1 Tablespoon Yerba Mate powder I prefer Yerba Mate Royale
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil or unsalted grass-fed butter
- 1 teaspoon xylitol
- 4 – 6 drops liquid stevia
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch sea salt
Heat 1 and 1/2 cups of filtered water to almost boiling.
Meanwhile, place the non-dairy milk, Yerba Mate, coconut oil or butter, xylitol, stevia, cinnamon, and sea salt into a blender. Add heated water. Place a dishtowel over the lid to protect your hand from the hot water and start blending at a low speed, gradually increasing to a high speed. Blend for about 30 - 45 seconds or until mixture starts to look frothy.
Pour into your favorite coffee mug.
*If you would like a stronger latte, add more yerba mate, 1 teaspoon at a time, during blending. Wisdom of the Ancients Instant Yerba Mate Royale is sweetened with stevia, so there is no need to add more sweetener when using this brand.
