Latte' Love

So, now is the time of year for a cozy, yummy latte'.
I don't know about you, but $5 a pop at the coffee shop does not settle well with my pocket book.

With the cool, Fall-ish weather I thought I'd try the Pumpkin Spice Latte'.
I didn't like it.
Don't judge me.

But I do like Cinnamon Dolce Lattes.
So I made my own.

Here's the Jenny version of the recipe.
Sorry Type A's...
I love my ceramic Starbux mug!

Sweet Cinnamon Latte'
aka Cinnamon Dolce Latte

2 shots espresso or 1/2 c. brewed coffee
1 c. milk
1 tbs. sugar
1 splash of vanilla syrup (I used the Torani kind)

First, make either 2 shots of espresso or 1/2 c. strong coffee.
Then, on the stove top heat up some or all of the milk. (I keep some aside cold to help bring down the temperature of the drink. I'm a wimp. Like mine warm- not HOT)
Add in the sugar, vanilla syrup and several dashes of cinnamon.
Heat til pretty darn warm. Not boiling.
In your mug, pour in your espresso/coffee, then your milk mixture. Sprinkle on some more cinnamon if your heart desires.

  1. this is not related at all, but I've been on this website Pinterest for too long now, but I can't stop. I thought of you as someone who would love it. It's literally a dream, especially me who's always bookmarking things I like. Or diy projects to pick up later. Just thought I'd send it your way. If you want an invite to it, send me your email and I'll invite you of course! :) even if just to check it out.


I love comments! Thanks for leaving me one! I read each and everyone one! xoxo Jenny Free
