Thank you to Mohawk Valley Trading Company for providing raw honey to make this post possible. All opinions are my own.
Honey shines here. Spring has been very slow on the uptake in Chicago and so I have found other ways to warm the cockles of my heart until the weather decides to cooperate. I’ve taken walks in the rain, created in home ambiance with candles, snuggled with books and felt a little Hygge with my operation cozy. When my kids are having “rest” time, it’s usually mommy “gather herself” time. As a homeschooling mom, this time is essential to me functioning as a human and so I guard it with my life.
This sacred hour includes a warm beverage and a square or two of chocolate depending on the amount of self control I have left at this point. Post a recent rain walk, I struggled to warm up. I was cold to the bone. I felt like something MORE than just tea and I wanted something lavish. I raided my pantry and raw honey was top of my list since Mohawk Valley Trading Company had sent me some honey that I was pumped to try. I was not disappointed. In fact, I used the honey in my tiny yogurt snack bowl too. Anyone else love little bowls?
A honey nut latte is the sort of drink I would normally order once in a while at a coffee shop but since the almond milk in the fridge practically danced at me when I was contemplating what to do with honey. Honey+nut = honey nut latte.
- ⅓ cup of espresso
- ¾ cup of almond milk
- 1 teaspoon of honey or more if you like it sweeter
- Brew the espresso and add to a mug
- Add the honey to the espresso in the mug and stir to combine
- Steam the milk in a milk frother or sauce pan. Do not over heat.
- Froth by hand using a hand held frother or whisk if you do not have a frother.
- Pour the steamed milk into the mug.
Home style honey nut lattes are so ridiculously easy. Barista style coffee in the comfort of your own home and saving you money spent at a coffee shop.
