Are you one of those who always sweared by the basics when it came to coffee, cappucino, latte, espresso etc?
I was, for a very long time, i left the complicated stuff to my local barista, pumpkin spiced latte, i would say with the biggest grin on my face!
I slowly learned though, that with a little effort & some creativity i could put together the conventional kind, don't get me wrong, conventional is the best, one can never never contest the effectiveness of an espresso shot on a hangover morning, the happiness latte can bring on a Monday morning.
But there are times, when I have a couple of friends over or i feel like a little indulgence, for that moments my current favourite is the White Chocolate Latte! The combination of sweet white chocolate & slightly bitter espresso does the trick.
I'll share one of my most favourite recipes. It's ridiculously easy & delicious, whip yourself one today!
In a medium size saucepan heat milk, half and half, white chocolate chips and instant coffee until chips are melted, stirring occasionally.
Stir in vanilla and almond extract.
Pour into coffee mugs and top with a dusting of cocoa if desired.
