Do you want to know the key to my heart?
A good latte and a few new cooking magazines. To me, I consider it pure bliss to sit curled up and slowly sip on my latte while dreaming up new recipes. Throw in a piece of dark chocolate and I am in a little bit of heaven. I am pretty easy to please, aren’t I?
That probably is NOT your definition of bliss. But I am willing to bet a large percentage of you reading this right now, will agree that a good cup of coffee is hard to beat. In fact, for most of us, myself included, that cup of jo is not only a desire, but has become most definitely a NEED to function most days.
While I would love to hit up a drive-thru of a fancy coffee shop everyday, my wallet will NOT allow that, nor will my frugal nature. So I reserve visits to coffee shops to just special occasions.
But that does not mean that I reserve special coffee for special occasions!
No way!! I start each and everyday with a Homemade Latte.
I prefer a simple plain latte made with either milk or plain almond milk. And guess what? With good quality coffee at home for a fraction of the price, thanks to Dunkin’ Donuts® Coffee that I am found at my local Publix, I am able to indulge in my latte everyday without leaving my house in less than 1 minute.
Plain isn’t your thing? No problem! Dunkin’ Donuts comes in a variety of flavors. And can be made by the cup with Dunkin Donuts k-cups or by the pot with either Dunkin Donut ground coffee or whole bean varieties.
Simple! Start with 1/2 cup milk. ANY variety. I have made my lattes with almond milk, skim milk, whole milk, coconut milk, and even my homemade Maple Coconut Creamer (PS that was GOOD!) Heat the milk for 30-45 seconds in your microwave in the cup you intend to drink your coffee from. Once the milk of your choice is heated, take a small whisk and vigorously whisk back and forth for 15-30 seconds until the milk is frothy. At this point, either pour your choice of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee straight into your mug, or brew from your k-cup right into the mug. Then take a seat and enjoy a small pleasure in life.
- ½ cup milk (ANY variety)
- 6 ounces strongly brewed Dunkin' Donuts coffee, any variety
- Heat the milk for 30-45 seconds in your microwave in the cup you intend to drink your coffee from. Once the milk of your choice is heated, take a small whisk and vigoursly whisk back and forth for 15-30 seconds until the milk is frothy.
- Pour the coffee directly over the frothed milk or brew over it.
