How to Make a Vanilla Latte
Here Are the Ingredients
- Espresso brewed in a jigger (1.5 oz)
- 2 tablespoons vanilla-flavoured syrup
- 1 ¼ cup 2% milk
For those without a milk frother, combine your milk and vanilla in a large container with a tight fitting lid. Pour the milk into a jar and shake it for 2-4 minutes until foam appears on the top. After 30 seconds, microwave the container.
Make sure your coffee or espresso is hot before you start drinking it.
Using a spoon, hold back the foam in your coffee cup while you pour milk from the jar into it.
Adding frothed milk to your latte is easy. Just spoon it over the surface and smooth it lightly.
Draw or sprinkle cocoa powder on top of your latte if you feel creative. You can use a skewer, chopstick, or toothpick to do this.
How Does a Latte Differ from An Espresso?
You can get close to espresso through a few different methods. Alternatively, you could use a regular coffee pot and make a very strong pot of coffee. It won’t be exactly the same but it will do the job. These will get you pretty close to a regular espresso if you own a Moka pot or an Aeropress. Use the same proportions when brewing coffee in a Moka pot or espresso machine, but use more coffee if you want a strong brew.
How Can I Steam Milk at Home?
The steamed milk in the latte is one of the most delicious things about a coffee shop latte. Using an immersion blender to foam up the milk after you have heated it with the vanilla, I have found it to be the easiest way to achieve a similar effect at home.
How Do You Use Vanilla Coffee?
There is also research indicating that vanilla is useful for treating stomach aches and digestive issues, and for relieving joint pain and stress. Adding a few drops of pure extract to your coffee will make it more flavorful. The vanilla bean can also be added to the coffee grounds so the flavor can permeate before you brew.
You can adjust the amount of syrup to your taste. Personally, I like my coffee to be stronger. I like 1-2 tablespoons. In contrast, my sister prefers the whole cup. You can add more later if necessary.
What would you like to drink more of? Pour a little less milk and a little more espresso/coffee into each cup.
