What better way to start off the day than with a delicious homemade Maple Vanilla Latte. My barista techniques are very amateur (to say the least). However, this recipe rocks! It’s EASY, no need to make any special syrup, because you have your syrup (maple syrup). 🙂 Yes, it’s very easy to make your own coffee shop drink at home! It’s a fraction of the calories and price of the store-bought kind and oh so delicious. Apparently, I’m not the only one who loves Maple Vanilla Lattes. Look who bombed the photo shoot:
Maple Vanilla Latte
This homemade latte is packed with hints of maple, vanilla and cinnamon. The secret to this delicious coffee is sweet maple syrup!
- 1 ½ cups milk
- ½ cup strong brewed coffee
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon maple extract
- Pinch ground cinnamon
Using a milk frother, heat and froth 1 cup of milk.
Pour coffee into mug.
Top the coffee with the milk.
Stir in maple syrup, vanilla extract, maple extract and cinnamon to taste.
Top with foamed milk.
If you do not have a frother, no need to fear. I got your back.
Pour your milk into a mason jar and heat in the microwave until warm. Do not boil! Remove from the microwave and put on the lid tightly. Just shake the jar until the milk gets foamy. Open the jar very slowly and carefully, because of the pressure. Pour into your coffee.
Another option is to use an immersion blender to froth the milk.
