For me, the weekends are made for relaxing and for little indulgences. Waffles for breakfast, fresh squeezed juice, and for foamy lattes.
I love lattes and since I’m not always able to go out for one, sometimes I’ll make a version at home. I will make these for Scott and I to slowly sip on while enjoying the more relaxed pace of a weekend morning.
They are super simple and easy to customize however you want! This is my basic latte:
Andrea’s Homemade Latte
- 3oz Vanilla Almond Milk or Grassfed Milk
- 8-10oz Fresh Brewed Coffee
- 1/2-1TBSP Grassfed Butter
- 1tsp Coconut Sugar
- 2tsp Vanilla Extract
- Pinch of Ground Cinnamon
In a blender add in the butter, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Lightly heat up the almond milk or milk, just enough to take the chill off. Pour into a mug and add the coffee. DO NOT fill up the mug the whole way, leave a bit of space at the top.
Pour the coffee milk mixture into the blender. Blend on medium for about a minute. Pour mixture back into the mug and enjoy!
This will be frothy and foamy which is why you need to leave room when you first pour out the coffee. That space is needed to make room for all the foam! These are also just rough measurements, feel free to play around and create a combo that suits your taste.
I use butter because that is what I prefer but you can use coconut oil instead. Two teaspoons of oil should be plenty.
Yes you can use regular sugar instead of coconut sugar, but reduce to 1/2tsp.
Feel free to customize it! Want peppermint mocha? Add in 1/2TBSP Unsweetened Cocoa and 1/2tsp of peppermint extract to the above mix. Boom! Peppermint Mocha Latte at home!
We all need treats in life and when we can make them at home to enjoy while hanging out in our PJs, all the better!
