Skinny Vanilla Latte

Hi Everyone,

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!  🙂

    4. Looks great! I know, it has been rainy here the past few days…makes me want to stay home and make one of these yummy vanilla lattes and curl up with a blanket and movie!

    5. I just had a skinny vanilla latte at Starbucks today (paid $3.25 of course) but who knew I could actually make one at home for soooo much cheaper?!

    6. I rarely drink coffee, but I’d make an exception for your skinny latte 🙂

    7. I LOVE my milk frother! I need to bust it out so I can make this!

    8. Happy anniversary!! And you seriously need to open your own version of Starbucks, you will take over every street corner from them!!

    9. Hi Jennifer, I’m loving your site! I tried your vanilla latte and it is delish! I have been dying to make one but tried and failed. So happy to be able to make it at home now.
