Easy Vanilla Latte

posted in: nosh | 0

It’s a known fact that I like anything to do with coffee and one of my favorite sweet coffee treats is a vanilla latte. It recently dawned on me that, since we own a Nespresso machine, I didn’t have to go out and buy it when I was hankering for one…I could just make it! The best part? It turned out so simple and easy!

Ingredients:
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • 3 oz espresso (you could substitute the espresso for french press or strong/bold coffee)
  • 6 oz steamed milk (1 oz retained for froth)
  • Sweetener of choice
Directions:
  1. Heat milk in small sauce pan over low heat…While milk is on the stove, prepare espresso and set aside.
  2. Once the milk is warm, remove from stove top and retain about 1 oz milk for frothing.
  3. Add the streamed milk, vanilla extract, and espresso to cup. Stir.
  4. Sweeten to taste.
  5. Froth remaining milk and pour over drink.

Enjoy!

P.S. Here’s a better picture of that awesome mug in my first picture:
