Aug 13, 2023
Are you intrigued by the latest trend taking the coffee world by storm? Oleato, the olive oil-based drink, has become a sensation, and we're here to offer you our unique twist on this delicious creation. As lovers of both exceptional olive oils and wholesome diets, we've delved into the world of Oleato to bring you a healthier, homemade version that will tantalize your taste buds and nourish your body. Welcome to the Oleato Lifestyle Blog, where we share our founder's insights, ingredient choices, and step-by-step guides to creating your very own Oleato masterpiece.
Founder's Vision: Victoria's Coffee Journey
Our founder, Victoria, has a deep-seated belief that greatness lies in authenticity and uniqueness. Rejecting mass-produced options, Victoria chooses to source her coffee from Alabaster Coffee, a small, award-winning store in Williamsport, PA, known for its exceptional coffee experiences. She believes that when something becomes too big, it loses its essence, a philosophy echoed by her own life and business experiences. Victoria's coffee journey has taken her from the heart of Pennsylvania to the remote corners of Chang Mai, where she encountered coffee grown by an ancient tribe – an experience that left a lasting impression on her taste palate.
Choosing the Perfect Ingredients
Central to our Oleato recipe is the careful selection of ingredients. In the spirit of the single-source trend, we embrace this philosophy wholeheartedly. We'd like to introduce you to our Laurel & Flame ultra-premium olive oils, a testament to quality and flavor. These oils are the heart of our Oleato, designed to elevate the taste and infuse the drink with the remarkable benefits of high polyphenol content.
A Healthier Alternative
We're conscious of choosing ingredients that align with a health-conscious lifestyle. While Oatly Milk is chosen for the Starbucks Oleato, our version takes a different path. For vegans, we recommend homemade almond milk, a creamy and delightful choice. Non-vegans, on the other hand, can enjoy the richness of heavy cream sourced from grass-fed cows, contributing to a wholesome dose of healthy fats.
Crafting Your Oleato at Home
Creating your own Oleato at home is a delightful journey. Our simple, yet refined, recipe starts with the perfect black coffee brewed using a French press. After letting it stand, you have two delightful options. For a comforting texture, you can use a milk frother to combine milk and olive oil, pouring this concoction over your black coffee. Alternatively, the blender option brings together the flavors seamlessly, creating a smooth and invigorating Oleato experience. Just pore coffee, olive oil and milk of choice into either stainless steel or glass cup blender and make sure you cover and hold the top with a towel not to let any hot splashes come out. For 8 oz of coffee take ¼ cups of milk and 1 spoon of olive oil, sweeten with stevia or xylitol if you have to.
The Almond Milk Adventure
For those who prefer a plant-based option, we've also got you covered. Discover the art of making homemade almond milk – a process that results in a creamy and satisfying milk alternative. Pour 1 cup of cold filtered water over 1 cup of raw unpasteurized almonds, preferably organic and leave at room temperature for about 10 hours or overnight. When ready to make almond milk, rinse the almonds discarding the water they had been soaking in. Place almonds in a blender, add 2.5 cups of cold filtered water and blend on ‘Liquify’ for 2-3 minutes. Hold a nut milk bag over a bowl big enough to hold the blender content and pour it into the bag. Squeeze the bag with clean hands, so that milk comes out into the bowl and the hard parts of almonds remain in the milk bag – the reward is a fridge-ready almond milk that's good for up to 3 days.
