How To Make A Latte With Chocolate Milk
This recipe requires NO fancy equipment. Check the recipe tips for suggestions.
- heat the chocolate milk to just under boiling
- make espresso
- pour the espresso into a cup
- froth the hot chocolate milk
- pour hot milk into the cup with the coffee
- top with the foam
- garnish with sprinkles
- Do you need an espresso machine? No, but if you have one that is fantastic. For this recipe, I used a good quality *(affiliate) espresso powder. If you don’t have espresso use really strong coffee as an alternative. If you have a *(affiliate) Keurig machine, that works great too. There are lots of great espresso coffee pods to choose from.
- Best milk frother. We have found this *(affiliate) hand-held frother works amazing!! So easy to use. Froths beautifully. Affordable too.
- This recipe uses a pot to heat the milk. Be sure not to bring it to a boil. That will scorch the milk.
- You can adjust the coffee to milk ratio if you like.
- You can make more than one latte at a time. Just adjust the ingredient amounts to compensate for the quantity you need.
- To add the hot milk to the drink, use a spoon to hold back the foam while pouring.
