Almond Milk Iced Latte

Oh, how I love my coffee beverages! That’s no secret to anyone who has been reading here for a while. And while I adore getting out of the house to grab coffee with a friend, baby life isn’t always conducive to swinging by a coffee shop for an afternoon treat. Thus, I’ve been trying to re-create my favorites at home, which is both more convenient and also a lot cheaper. Win-Win.

Recently I discovered a way to make an almond milk iced latte that tastes just like the one they make at Peet’s. I use the small cup setting on my Nespresso Inissia for the espresso shot, and I use the Aeroccino on the cold setting for the milk so I can get a tiny bit of foam.

Here’s how I do it…

ALMOND MILK ICED LATTE

– 1 shot espresso (if using Nespresso, use the small cup setting)
– 1 cup cold foamy almond milk (just fill the Aeroccino to the “max” line)
– Handful of ice

Make the espresso shot and start the milk on the cold setting using the Aeroccino. Add a couple of dollops of foam to the bottom of a glass, then add ice to the cup on top of the foam. Pour the espresso and milk over the ice together at the same time. Serve without stirring.

    Yum! We just got our nespresso last week, and we are in love! I will have to try a latte with almond milk. I’m sipping a latte with coconut milk as we speak!
