It’s quite satisfying knowing how to make your own coffee drinks at home. Working from home is the new normal, so it’s a skill you need to learn. Don’t worry, it’s easy! And think about how much money you will save buying fine coffee drinks! It’s time to learn how to make a vanilla latte. And then you can branch out and make even more coffee drinks.
How to make vanilla syrup for coffee:
Start by making a simple, thick syrup. Add 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water to a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stir until the sugar dissolves. Let the sugar syrup cool completely. Then add 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract to the cooled sugar syrup to create vanilla syrup. This can be used to make a vanilla latte, and you can add it to your iced coffee or cold brew coffee too! This vanilla syrup recipe will allow you to make about 10 drinks. Just store it in the fridge and it will keep for up to a month.
Ingredients needed to make a vanilla latte:
- 2 shots of hot espresso
- 2 tablespoons of vanilla syrup (instructions for making vanilla syrup are in the recipe)
- 2/3 cup whole milk
How to make a vanilla latte:
Add the espresso and vanilla syrup to a cup. I like to use large glass cups for making coffee and coffee drinks. I ordered a set of large glass mugs on Amazon a few years ago, and we use them all the time!
Can you brew espresso in a Keurig?
Yes! You don’t have to have a espresso machine to prepare an espresso. If you have a coffee maker that uses K cups or pods (like a Keurig), you can use espresso pods instead of coffee pods. We have the Keurig Coffee, Latte & Cappuccino Maker home, and we love it. It has a built-in milk frother!
Froth the milk for a latte:
Heat the milk. A classic vanilla latte uses whole milk. If you’re watching your calories, use skim milk. Because I am showing you the proper method of making a vanilla latte, the next step is to “froth” the milk. It is a process that will add air bubbles to the milk to create froth. Use a milk frother froth hot milk. I know it sounds fancy, but it’s very easy to do. If you don’t have a milk frother, you can use an immersion blender or put the steamed milk in a shaker and shake vigorously. Pour the steamed and frothed milk into the cup along with the espresso and vanilla syrup. Use a spoon to hold back the foam (foam).
Add the milk to the espresso. Pour the mousse on top.
Enjoy your hot vanilla latte!
