It took me an embarrassingly long time to try a homemade latte. Once I did, however, I was kicking myself for putting it off for so many years. Don’t let coffee shops fool you: to make a good latte in the comfort of your own kitchen, you only need a few ingredients and a decent blender.
This earl grey latte is as simple as can be, but the addition of almond milk makes it something special. Of course, you can use any non-dairy milk you’d like, but I think the distinct taste of almond milk integrates so nicely with the bitter and fruity flavors of the tea. Finally, a small amount of coconut butter or oil makes the drink silky and creamy. Enjoy!
Almond Earl Grey Latte
- 8 oz boiling water
- 1 earl grey tea bag
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 teaspoon coconut butter or oil
- 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup or agave
1. Pour boiling water into a large mug with tea bag, leaving about an inch of room for milk. Steep for 5 minutes.
2. While tea is steeping, blend together almond milk, coconut butter or oil, and sweetener for a good 2 minutes. Immediately pour on top of tea, and serve.
