I just discovered this drink at Starbucks and LOVE it! If you like the flavor of cinnamon, you’ll love it too. My skinny version is ½ the calories of Starbucks skinny latte and my recipe is yummy! So convenient to enjoy anytime of day at your home. One (12oz) skinny latte has just 48 calories, 0 grams fat and 1 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients for Coffee:
¾ cup strong brewed coffee, I used Starbucks vanilla for k-cup
2 packages Splenda, Equal, Truvia or your favorite sugar substitute
1 tablespoon water
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup fat-free milk
1. Brew coffee extra strong. I used a K-Cup and brewed it stronger than normal.
2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together Splenda, water, cinnamon and vanilla until well blended, about 1 minute. Stir in milk and continue to heat over medium heat, stirring until steaming, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Transfer to a blender and process for 20 seconds until foamy. If you don’t have a blender, don’t worry about it. Just whisk the mixture continuously with a wire whisk until foamy.
3. Add ¾ cup hot coffee to mug. Pour foamy milk over the top.
4. Drink immediately. Enjoy!
Makes 1 (12 oz) drink
Starbucks Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte is made with espresso, steamed nonfat milk and sugar-free cinnamon dolce flavored syrup with cinnamon dolce topping and no whipped cream.
Instead of using sugar-free cinnamon dolce flavored syrup, I found that just heating cinnamon, vanilla extract, water and a sugar substitute works great.
