Has anyone ever tried the Moroccan Mint Latte from Urth Caffe? Well, if you’re in an area near one of their locations, please get your booty over to try one.

I swear it tastes just like mint ice cream (minus the chocolate), and I’m talking the non vegan full fat dairy kind. That used to be my favorite ice cream growing up as a kid, and was one of the things I always wished to veganize when initially changing my lifestyle.

This this pudding was inspired by the Moroccan Mint Latte from Urth Caffe +  the ice cream. I cannot say that this recipe tastes like the ice cream, so please don’t expect it to, but it’s flavor is definitely reminiscent of it. Try adding cacao nibs to make it mint chocolate chip, yummy!
