Recipe – DIY Maple Latte

Happy Stay-at-Home-Saturday! (As they all are at the moment.) I hope everyone is safe and in good health. Where I live, a fancy latte is hard to come by these days, and while I most often like to french press a dark roast and drink it black with a sprinkle of cinnamon… every once in a while I just want something, well, fancier. In an effort to quench that thirst, I came up with this quick and easy, DIY, Stay-at-Home Maple “Latte” (no special equipment required).



What you need:

  • 1 + 1/4 cups of prepared coffee (unflavoured)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (the real stuff!!)
  • 1/4 cup milk or milk substitute
  • Whipped cream (optional)

What to do:

  1. Prepare 1+1/4 cup of coffee in your usual method. For me, this means adding a serving of ground coffee to my press, measuring out and adding 1+1/4 cup of boiling water, and waiting 4-7 minutes
  2. Once coffee is ready, pour into mug and add the vanilla extract and maple syrup. TIP: Want it sweeter? Add more maple!
  3. Heat up milk. Thirty seconds in a microwave will do
  4. Add milk to coffee and stir
  5. For extra luxury, add whipped cream 🙂

Enjoy, and stay safe!
