Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for so good marketing. I kept seeing these posts with superfood powdered lattes and eventually I gave in and decided to try it out. So obviously, we already know that their marketing is on point, but what I wanted to know was– is it any good? Read on for my Blume review!

What is Blume?
So what is Blume? Well, they’re a company in Vancouver that makes “alternative coffee beverages.” They specialize in vegan, gluten free, dairy free, superfood powdered drink mixes made with organic ingredients, including adaptogens and functional mushrooms. It’s designed to be a healthy alternative to coffee or other caffeinated beverages. All you do is add a liquid of your choice and bam! Instant, delicious latte.
How do you make a Blume Latte?
It’s so simple! All you do is:
- Add a small amount of hot water to a teaspoon of the powder in a cup.
- Mix it! I like to use a frother stick to get this part done.
- Add either hot or cold mylk (pick your favorite milk— cow milk, almond milk, oat milk, soy milk, etc.)
- Mix a little bit more, until the consistency is to your liking.
- You can also add in sweeteners like honey, sugar, or maple syrup.
How does a Blume Latte taste?
So far, everything has been good! You can read my blume review for each individual product I tried below, but here are my overall thoughts.
- Overall, I think the taste is great! You can control how strong or mild you want the flavor to be by adding more or less of the powdered blend.
- It’s super convenient. You just heat some water, dump in powder, blend. Add milk, blend again. Can be hot or cold, depending on your mood. So easy and so quick! I love that you don’t have to wait too long to make it.
- Tastes like: a less sweet hot cocoa (probably because I don’t add much sweetener to mine). But tastes, just like hot cocoa, only healthier!
- Benefits: It has reishi, an adaptogen that can help soothe stress.
- Other: Refined Sugar Free, Organic
- How I drink it: I love drinking this with any kind of milk, but I think regular dairy or coconut milk are my favorite because of the added creaminess!
- Tastes like: a more mild matcha flavor (you can still definitely tell it’s matcha though) with a hint of coconut.
- Benefits: This is a great coffee alternative!
- Other: Vegan, Sugar Free, Organic
- How I drink it: I really like the way this tastes with oat milk. The creaminess of the oat milk goes well with the matcha flavor. If I make it with almond milk, I usually add a bit of sweetener. Great hot or cold!
- Tastes like: lavender
- Benefits: Per their website, it’s a soothing blend that helps your immune system, calms you down, and assists with sleep thanks to the lavender and blue spirulina (which is also full of antioxidants). Now I don’t know if it’s the powder, the placebo effect, or adulthood, but I sleep like a baby with this blend.
- Other: Vegan, Caffeine Free, Organic
- How I drink it: Great hot or colD, but I prefer to drink it as a warm beverage before I go to bed. I make it with almond milk and add a hint of honey.
- Tastes like: spices — strong notes of cinnamon with a hint of beet.
- Benefits: Per the Blume website, it’s good for detoxification and reducing your blood pressure (again, I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist, so I cannot comment on the validity of these claims). Plus, it has lots of healthy stuff like antioxidants, nitrates, vitamins, and minerals. I can’t comment on it’s actual effect on the body, but my thought process was: Oh beets are healthy. I like beets. It’s a best seller. Let’s try it!
- Other: Vegan, Caffeine Free, Sugar Free, Organic
- How I drink it: Great hot or cold, but I prefer to drink it cold. I make it with almond milk and add a hint of honey.
What Flavors does Blume Offer?

- Oat Milk Chai Blend
- Blue Lavender Blend
- Reishi Hot Cacao Blend
- Beetroot Blend
- Turmeric Blend

What milk goes best with Blume?
A Blume latte can be mixed with any type of milk including dairy milk, almond milk, or oat milk. However, some types of milk may affect the taste or texture of the drink. I’ve included some of my favorites with my Blume review of each flavor, but overall, here are some recommendations:
- Almond milk: adds a nutty flavor and creamy texture to a Blume latte.
- Oat milk: adds a subtle sweetness and frothy texture to a Blume latte.
- Dairy milk: adds a traditional latte taste to a Blume latte.
Do Blume drinks have caffeine? If so, how much caffeine is in a Blume latte?
Blume lattes are caffeine-free, so it won’t give you the jitters or crash associated with coffee or other caffeinated beverages. Instead, it contains adaptogens and functional mushrooms that help support your body’s natural energy and focus.
Who owns Blume?
Blume is a Canadian wellness brand founded by sisters Taran and Bunny Ghatrora. Their mission is to make wellness accessible and enjoyable for everyone, regardless of their lifestyle or budget. How awesome is that? Definitely something I can get behind.
Blume Review Concluding Thoughts:
So far I’ve really liked the ones I tried and I can’t wait to try more! One comment I do have is sometimes if you add too much or don’t use hot water, it can be somewhat grainy. But really, I think that’s user error as I’m not letting the powder fully dissolve before I drink it. Overall, the blends are quick, convenient, and delicious.
Also, the possibilities are endless. I’ve only tried them as lattes, but they also send out a little booklet of recipes so you can use the blends in food! Stay tuned for more experiments with my Blume blends. Plus, Blume just released their seasonal Pumpkin Spice blend (hello fall!) and I’ve definitely got my eye on their Rose London Fog blend. Check it out!
I hope this Blume review was helpful! If you have any more questions, check out their site! They have an excellent FAQ page as well.
