Iced Cinnamon Dolce Latte {recipe}

I'm just going to put this out there...I'm a coffee-aholic. In fact I go so much that my 1 1/2 year daughter knows when I'm in the drive thru placing an order for my latte. How do I know? She shouts out "coffee!" when the lady hands me the cup and here's the kicker...she's in a rear facing carseat! 

In an effort to save a whole lot of money I make lattes at home, all the time. And I just want to tell you that I don't make gross lattes like some other blog recipes I've tried. This one was so good my coffee-hating-husband took a sip and said "that's drinkable!" and then proceeded to drink 1/2 of it himself. I'd say that's a success. However, you must know that I make my lattes on the sweeter side, you can still taste the coffee but it's not the main flavor. If you like more coffee and less sweetness than do less of the syrup suggested. So here goes...



What you'll need:
Ground Espresso, I use Starbucks brand
Something to brew the espresso in, I use this from IKEA
Milk, I use 2%

Latte Recipe:
2 oz Brewed espresso
1 cup cold milk
2 1/2 Tbsp of Agave Cinnamon Syrup
3 Ice cubes

Whipped Cream Recipe:
1 cup heaving whipping cream
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
Use a high speed mixer until it makes soft peaks

Brew your espresso and pour 2 ounces into a cup, add the syrup to the hot espresso to melt it. Add the milk and let chill in the fridge a few minutes. Add 3 ice cubs to the mix, top with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon on top. And that's it!  It's amazingness :)

If you want to see how I use the IKEA percolator refer to images below.

Here's a pic of the syrup I use...as you can see I've consumed most of it.




 Measure out 2 oz and you're ready to move on.

Hope you enjoy this latte as much as I do!

  1. Man, we've had our espresso maker for about three years and I suck at making lattes from home so I leave it to the boyfriend. We get our espresson beans from Starbucks, too! To be honest, I've been on a kick about getting latte from little coffee shops that know their stuff. :) Pricey, but I guess it makes up for alcohol?#@ This recipe sounds delicoius and I like saying DOLCE. :) CHEERS TO COFFEE LOVERS! xoxoxo

  2. I love coffee too! So much so that my kitchen is filled (tastefully) with coffee themed elements. I've been making all different coffee drinks at home too, it really does save a lot of money. This latte sounds so good! I can't wait to try it.

High-Waisted Sash Skirt {Tutorial}

Ok so I'm officially on a skirt kick as this is my third one in 2 weeks. With spring in the air I just can't help but want to live in spring things! This diy skirt is similar to the other one I did but this one has a sash and is fuller...which I think is way fun! To purchase this exact fabric go to my etsy shop! If you're not up for making it you're in luck! I now sell it on my etsy shop too! You should also check it out on my friend over at Stylish Petite!

Sweet as a Berry Little Girl Dress {tutorial}

With Valentine's day lurking around the corner it's only natural for a blogger like myself to begin thinking of cute ways to incorporate the holiday. When I came across this strawberry fabric I fell in love with it's sweetness and decided that I would make my daughter a Valentine's day inspired dress. You may remember my Valentine's day inspired onesie from last year...Now if only my daughter would get up and walk in it instead of scoot around on her booty getting the beautiful fabric all dirty! Sigh...someday!
