Homemade Latte

Coffee is definately my favorite drink.  Lately, I have been really craving lattes and so have started making one every night.  Well, mostly every night, but I enjoy each and every sip.  With living in my small town I don't have the luxery of going to Starbucks or Friedricks like I did when I was living in Des Moines.  Nor would I have the funds to buy one every night either now that I'm staying at home.  So making my own has been great and so easy to do!

3 easy ingrediants: 

Syrup flavor of your choice; I prefer hazelnut
1 Cup milk
*optional: frother

Now you can make your coffee a little stronger for your latte, but I just use the coffee that I didn't drink from the morning (that way I'm not wasting it, again every little bit saves).

Latte How-to: 

1st: Steam milk on stove top or microwave for about 1 minute.
*If you have the frother, froth the milk.
2nd: Add milk to mug
*Hold back the froth for the end if you used a frother.
3rd: Add 2 Tablespoons of syrup
4th: Add coffee until mug is filled.
5th: Stir and ENJOY!!

The only extra ingrediant that I have to purchase is my syrup.  I already have coffee & milk so for only about $3.98 at Walmart, I can have multiple latte evenings.  That's equivalent to one tall latte at Starbucks!  Remember prices vary depending on location and store, so make sure to do your own price research based on your location.

The frother I added as optional because while it does make more like a coffeeshop latte if you don't have one it's not a necessary purchase.  For the last few weeks I didn't have one and my lattes have been great.  Recently, my mother-in-love gave me one for Valentine's Day and I'm super pumped to put it in use.  

What's your favorite drink after a long day, or just because?
