I recently spent a glorious month with my beautiful mother in beautiful Maryland. While there, she filled me with nutritious foods and healthy beverages. I came home feeling great! I embraced all that she fed me as she cooks super clean and is homeopathic. However, the one thing that I couldn’t live without was my daily cup of java. When I realized that my mom does not own a coffee machine because she drinks herbal tea instead, she quickly assured me that she could make a healthy, tasty latte without needing an expensive coffee machine. I was intrigued and she was right. I woke each morning looking forward to her scrumptious cinnamon nutmeg latte! With just five ingredients, no coffee maker and under two minutes, I was so impressed that I decided to share her recipe in my recent 3TV Your Life Arizona morning show segment. She joined me to share her coffee creation. Take a look and cheers to coffee and to mamas! Super simple!
My Mom’s Healthy Cinnamon Nutmeg Latte Recipe
What You Need:
Your desired amount of Starbucks Iced Coffee Blonde Roast in coffee cup
Your desired amount of unsweetened soy milk (can also use almond milk, oat milk…whatever you want)
1 to 2 teaspoons of xylitol sweetener – per your taste – can also use stevia or white cane sugar
sprinkle of cinnamon
sprinkle of nutmeg
What You Do:
- Heat the coffee.
- In separate cup or bowl, whisk heated (or not – your choice) soy milk and xylitol until foamy. This is one example of a hand held milk frother hand whisker that works. There are lots of other brands to also choose from both online and at stores like Target.
- Top coffee with whisked soy milk and sweetener combo.
- Sprinkle desired amount of cinnamon and nutmeg on top. Yum!
