Now that the weather is getting cold, I think I am ready to start making hot coffee drinks. I wanted to start my first hot coffee drink with my favorite drink that I always order from Starbucks, the Skinny Vanilla Latte. I love this drink!!!
This drink is pretty easy to make and to be honest I like it better than Starbucks, It has more of a vanilla flavor and I can make it as sweet as I like. The key to this drink is whipping the milk together. Now I do have a milk frother, but a lot of people don’t, so I did this the old fashion way by adding non-fat milk to a sauce pan along with vanilla extract and sugar and whisk until the milk is warm and frothy. This was the first time I frothed milk on the stove and it turned out pretty good!!! I’m impressed!!
I can’t get over how the weather last week went from turning the air on, to turning the heat on today. I am not ready for winter! I think from this weeks recipes you will see I am starting to make comfort foods. Plus with the Foodbuzz event I have been wanting hearty warm meals over light and chilled meals. I think that is one of the few things I like about Fall and Winter. I am truly a summer person!! It can never be to hot for me, even if I complain about it! 🙂
- ½ cup brewed coffee
- ⅔ cup non-fat milk
- 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
- ¼ - ½ tsp stevia (to taste)
- In a small sauce pan add milk, stevia and vanilla extract. Over low heat, whisk milk constantly at a fast speed for froth, for approx 2 minutes or until milk is warm and froth.
- Pour into coffee.
This is going to be a short post today! It’s my Husbands and my wedding anniversary and I want to create a dessert to go with our dinner before he comes home from work. I am just not sure what to make?
Have a great week and stay warm!! Time for to crank the heat up!
