DIY Maple Latte

This is by far is my FAVORITE latte! Move over fancy coffee shop, I don't need to spend $3.50 for my daily coffee fix. I can do it at home, without the refined sugar and nasty additives. It is pure deliciousness!

The ingredients & tools: 
  • A cup of your favorite coffee 
  • A small mason jar (or any jar with a lid) 
  • 1/4 Cup Organic Milk or Half & Half 
  • 2 tsp Maple Syrup 
  • 1 tsp *coconut oil (optional) *If you are just starting to consume coconut oil start with 1/2 tsp, it can cause a little stomach ache if you start out too strong.  Then you can increase your amount up to 1 tbs if you wish.

Pour 1/4 cup of milk or half & half into a jar, add the maple syrup and coconut oil (coconut oil will be solid). Pop your jar (uncovered) into the microwave for 25 - 30 seconds. If you are anti microwave warm your mixture up on the stove, just enough for your milk to steam then pour it into a jar. Take the milk mixture out of the microwave, put the lid on it and give it a good shake for at least 20 seconds.
Pour the frothy mixture into your hot coffee.
There you have it. A delicious DIY latte.
