Description

The vanilla latte recipe is warm and cozy, pairing espresso with milk and homemade vanilla syrup! There’s a reason this drink is a coffeeshop staple. Its creamy, sweet flavor and comforting aroma are the perfect pick me up any time of the day!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 espresso shots (2 ounces)
  • 4 ounces (½ cup) fresh whole milk or oat milk* (double for two servings when steaming)
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla syrup

Instructions

  1. If not made already, make the vanilla syrup.
  2. Make the espresso: Make the espresso using an espresso machine, manual espresso maker, French press, or Moka Pot. Go to How to Make Espresso for instructions.
  3. Steam or froth the milk and vanilla syrup (double batch): Add the vanilla syrup to the milk. Steam the milk with an espresso machine, or heat and then froth the milk using your method of choice (milk frother, French press, whisk or covered jar). It’s easiest to steam or froth 1 cup of milk for 2 drinks, so use 1 tablespoon vanilla syrup. Go to How to Steam Milk or How to Froth Milk for details on each.
  4. Serve: Pour the milk into the center of the espresso, ending with light foam (using half the steamed or frothed milk for 1 drink).

Notes

*Whole milk works best; milk that is a few weeks old may not froth. You can also use oat milk for a vegan latte.
