A Homemade Latte Break

I have limited counter space, which is why when my old espresso maker started falling apart, I decided replacing it wasn't going to be worth it.  I love lattes, and they're too easy to make at home without the big machines!

I took an old jelly jar and filled it with milk, about 1 cup, replaced the lid and shook it for about a minute.  I then microwaved the milk (lid-free).  If you don't have a jar, I use a whisk in a mixing bowl or a big cup, then add my flavoring and microwave (or, if using leftover coffee from the pot, microwave all together).

I used my stove top espresso maker that I bought from a local Facebook swap for $2.  However, using a French press for strong, flavorful coffee would work too.  If you don't have either of these, make coffee in your coffee maker or single serve drip, but just make it a bit stronger.

I added 1 tbs of hazelnut syrup.

Delicious!  Time for a coffee break. :)  That vintage apron in the background is a thrift store find. Pin It
