Prep Time: 10 minutes


Ingredients

1 cup (8 oz) vanilla, hazelnut or regular brewed coffee or decaf

½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or coconut milk 

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

Dash of cinnamon


Instructions

1. Brew coffee strong. I used my Keurig machine and set it for an 8 ounce size cup. You can also brew in a regular coffee machine.

2. Add almond milk and maple syrup to a separate coffee cup. Mix to combine. Heat in microwave for 45 seconds. Transfer to a blender and process on high for 15-20 seconds. If you don’t have a blender, add almond milk and maple syrup to a small sauce pan. Whisk continuously with a wire whisk until foamy.

3. Pour hot brewed coffee in a large mug. Pour blended milk on top. Add a dash of cinnamon.

4. Drink immediately. Enjoy!

Makes 1-12 oz serving (1½ cups)


Shopping Tips

I used my favorite K-cup for this recipe. It’s Donut Shop Vanilla Cream Puff.

Use your favorite unsweetened, non dairy milk such as almond, coconut or cashew milk. I love Blue Diamond Almond Breeze-unsweetened vanilla almond coconut. I bought mine at Target and Vons/Safeway in the refrigerator milk section.
