I do love specialty coffees, and this Chocolate Milk Latte is so easy to make at home. It’s like having your own personal coffee shop!!
Having a great coffee is a pleasure I always look forward too. Yes it’s great to go out, but it does get expensive. Seriously, making awesome coffees at home is easier than you think.
I do love going out for a coffee now and again. Perfect for when I have time on a shopping day. There is nothing better than spending a few nice moments talking with my husband over a great latte. They do get costly, so I have figured out a way to make them easily so we can enjoy them whenever we like at home.
I don’t have fancy equipment, but hey if you have an espresso machine you are ahead of the game. I use instant espresso powder, a pot to heat the milk and a Aerolatte to froth the milk!! That’s it!!
Now for the fun part, making the drink. The best part is the milk. Instead of using regular milk and adding chocolate syrup for flavouring, I used chocolate milk!! I know, how awesome is that right? The best chocolate milk going is from Farm Boy. I absolutely love the fact the milk is organic and comes in glass bottles. It totally reminds me of when I was a child and we had milk delivered to the house. If you are lucky enough to have one of these great stores near you, head on over there and grab some chocolate milk.
Now the fun part making the drink. It’s so easy you won’t believe it. Measure some chocolate milk into a pot and heat it up (just to under boiling). While that is doing its thing, boil some water in the kettle. Add your espresso powder to your cup. I use 3/4 cup of boiling water per drink. Mix the powder and hot water. Once the chocolate milk is heated, froth and pour into your cup that already has your coffee waiting. Top with the froth, add some chocolate sprinkles and there you have it a wonderfully delicious Chocolate Milk Latte made by you!!
Now you see making wonderful lattes at home is easy so you can enjoy these drinks as often as you like. Impress your friends next time and make them a Chocolate Milk Latte. I know my friends will love it!!
