Salted Caramel Protein Latte

Skip the café and make your own salted caramel latte at home, that has a protein punch. With all the sweet, salty and oh-so-creamy deliciousness, it’s hard to believe you’re sipping on 20g of plant-based protein, as well as veggies and greens… but believe me, it’s true.
