Vanilla Latte

It has been awhile since I had a latte, so I thought I’d treat myself.

And it was so good! It gave Starbucks a run for their money. 🙂

Vanilla Latte

Adapted from Canadian Living

  • 1/4 cup strongly brewed coffee
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla syrup
  • 1/2 cup almond milk, heated
  • 1/4 cup almond milk, frothed

Vanilla Syrup:

  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

First, you need to make the vanilla syrup. Start by adding the water and sugar into a saucepan over high heat until the mixture boils.

Once it boils, reduce the heat and allow it to simmer until it becomes a syrup like texture, about 5-7 minutes. Then add the vanilla extract.

Pour the mixture into a jar and set aside. This syrup can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Next, pour the 1/4 cup milk for frothing into a saucepan and heat on high.

In a microwave safe bowl, add the 1/2 cup of milk for heating and heat in the microwave. Once hot, add two tablespoons of the vanilla syrup and stir. Feel free to heat again.

Once the milk in the saucepan begins to bubble, reduce the heat and begin to froth with a frother.

In a medium sized cup or jar, pour the already brewed coffee in first. Then pour in the hot milk on top. Lastly, pour the frothed milk on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Allow to cool a bit then enjoy!
