What can I say? I love my coffee. I do like it black every now and then, especially when it is paired with a dessert. But I really, really love a good creamy sweet cup of coffee. With three kids, it is so tempting to drive through the Starbucks line and order myself a Tall Vanilla Soy Latte….mmmmmm….pure bliss. Pure bliss that costs $4!! But if the baby’s sleeping in the back seat and I have some chauffeuring to do, a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do.
The above is a photo of my at-home, faux latte. I don’t have an espresso machine. I just make some drip coffee (I do grind the beans fresh each morning), then I add 1 Tbsp of either raw sugar or agave nectar and about 1/2 cup of hot soy milk. Sometimes I’ll add in about 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract. Good enough for me! Yep, I know most people don’t add a whole tablespoon of sweetener to their coffee. Gross, you say? Well, I swear, my home-made coffee drink is less sweet than my Starbucks latte. Lately when I’ve ordered a latte, I find it to be too sweet, even for me. So there!
