Vanilla Lattes | A Rose in Bloom

There is something so sacred about morning coffee. It's not just the caffeine either. There is that special warmth the seeps into your bones. The scent of new life each day. However, as much as I love my cup of Jo each morning, I do enjoy changing it up a little. That is where this recipe comes in handy. It's not just a traditional latte, the hint of vanilla and the tiny amount of sweetness leaking through can be perfect for that morning you need an extra boost to transform your morning. Please note that you can certainly use standard brewed coffee and still get a delicious drink. I prefer to brew espresso in my Bialetti, but regular coffee is still sensational. 

  • 2 shots espresso
  • steamed milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Firstly, brew your espresso and heat your milk over a low flame, whisking frequently until hot and frothy. How much to use depends on your tastes, but I used roughly 1 cup. Then add a tablespoon (or what you like) of sugar to your mug.

Then pour the coffee into the mug.

  Then add a spoonful of vanilla and stir well until the sugar is dissolved.

Now it is time to pour the delicious, hot milk into your cup. Don't be stingy!

Next up, serve with a healthy breakfast. My favorite recently has been strawberries and cottage cheese. Heavenly.

tl;dr: Brew some espresso, heat some milk, dump some sugar and vanilla extract into that mug and mix it all together for an extra kickstart to Monday.
