Maple Cinnamon Latte

Adapted from Tara’s Multicultural Table

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup hot espresso
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅛ tsp cinnamon (set aside extra cinnamon for garnish)
  • ¾ c steamed almond milk

Instructions

  1. Add the maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon to the bottom of a wide mug and stir together.

  3. While holding the mug slightly to the side you will slowly pour the steamed milk in the center to fill the mug and add a thin layer of foam to the top.

Pro Tip – If you are making steamed milk at home and don’t have an espresso machine you will use the following stove top method. Heat your milk on low. While the milk is heating, use a whisk to beat it rapidly until you reach a frothy consistency. It can help to have a candy thermometer on hand to make sure your milk has reached a safe temperature. Most coffee shops steam milk to between 140 and 145 degrees but you will want to make sure you are choosing a safe temperature if you decide to go a bit warmer with yours.
