Before I was “medically retired”, I used to enjoy a morning latte from Starbucks or Caribou, on a fairly consistent basis, on my way into work. But, now that I am home, I surely don’t have the energy or the money to run out for my favorite cup of joe, So, I decided to learn how to make the lattes at home and found out that it is oh, so simple!
Try it out and let me know what you think!
What you will need:
Syrup (whatever flavor suits your taste buds)
Magic Bullet or an Immersion Blender
Pour one half cup of skim milk into your magic bullet cup or liquid measuring cup.
Use the immersion blender, on low, blend the milk for 30 seconds (if you like more foam, blend longer). If you are using a magic bullet, 30 seconds is enough.
Then place the milk into the microwave for 30-45 seconds.
While the milk is in the microwave, I brew a large cup of coffee into the mug.
I like to use the Dark Magic coffee as it is a little stronger so the latte doesn’t become weak once you add the milk.
I use a Keurig to brew my coffee, however a standard coffee pot would work as well. It just may be a bit more work. Remember to brew a stronger pot than you normally would.
Once your coffee is done brewing, add 2 TBSP of syrup.
I like the sugar-free vanilla and caramel, however any of the Torani Syrups would work.
By now your microwave has beeped and your milk has been warmed. The last step is to add the milk into your coffee. Then top with the foam.
I like to stir my coffee after everything is in the cup, as then the foam even tastes like the chosen flavor.
Then you sit down and ENJOY!
It is that EASY! Now you can enjoy some morning, afternoon or evening goodness too, at home!
Have a GREAT day!
