Making Café Latte Without A Milk Frother
There are so many kinds of coffee you can order, but a latte has to be one of the more popular options. However, rather than spending several dollars on a latte, why not make your own?
If you have a coffee machine you can brew espresso and then top it with your heated milk. If not, simply brew some strong coffee using a coffee machine, cafetiere, or even instant coffee granules if that is all you have. You can then add the hot milk, and enjoy a hot latte.
Some people like to add flavoured syrup to their latte, and that is a nice way to add a unique flavour, whether you go for vanilla, caramel, or another flavour. Try mint, gingerbread or mocha syrup in there perhaps, either the regular kind of the sugar-free variety.
A creamy latte makes a tasty breakfast drink along with your vanilla toast or you can enjoy it mid-morning, after lunch or as an after-lunch pick-me-up, perhaps paired with a cookie or slice of cake. This recipe makes 4 servings so halve it if you wish.
