Brrrrr……it’s been really cold here! All I want to do is stay in my house and eat soup, bake and watch movies. And read food blogs, of course. Unfortunately, I have to work, get my Christmas and grocery shopping done and exercise. Exercise? What’s that? So to get me moving the other day, I made this creamy latte with Nutella. Nutella is good in everything, right? So why not coffee? I wonder why Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks hasn’t thought of it yet?
Now for some advice for this latte. Make your own homemade whipped cream. It is easy and so much better than the canned stuff. Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with canned whipped cream and my kids love it on their ice cream. But if you take a small carton of whipping cream, add a few tablespoons of some powdered sugar, a splash of vanilla and beat it all together, you will thank me. The other thing is if you don’t have a frother, you might want to get one. A frother is one of those nifty kitchen tools that make you want to stay away from the $5 coffees from your coffee shop. Imagine how much you can save if you purchase this tool for under $20. This is the one I have and you can purchase it on Amazon by clicking HERE.
Now go make yourself a latte! Mmmmmnnnn!
Cinnamon Nutella Latte
3 TBS Nutella
4 ounces milk (2%, 1%, whole or skim)
a dash of cinnamon
6 ounces of brewed coffee
In a small saucepan, heat the Nutella, milk and cinnamon together on low heat. Stir until the mixture is steaming hot. If you have a frother then go ahead and froth the milk. In a large mug, add the coffee and then the milk mixture. Top with a heaping amount of whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
