Nutella Latte

Sub-zero temperatures make hot drinks…and soup…taste especially good.  I like my coffee black, but I also enjoy a creamy latte or cafe mocha.  (Truth be told, I especially like one of these special drinks with a small handful of peanut M&Ms.  For a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, I count out 10 or 12 so I don’t eat the whole bag, but I digress…)

Coffeehouse drinks cost a pretty penny, and a copycat version can truly be pulled off at home.  While espresso more closely mimics the real deal, I use my favorite strong coffee for a pretty close stand in.

And for a little something extra sweet, I am including a photo of a new arrival at the bottom of this post.  I don’t often include family photos, but every once in a while there is one that merits.  This new addition makes me an aunt eight times over, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

Nutella Latte
If you have an espresso maker, you can make your own version using espresso.

Yields 1 serving.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup milk (non-fat, 2%, or soy according to preference)
  • 1 tablespoon Nutella
  • Whipped cream, optional
Instructions
  1. Add the Nutella to the hot coffee and stir to dissolve.
  2. Pour the coffee mixture and the milk into your favorite mug. Top with a squirt of whipped cream, if desired.
Notes
  • One tablespoon of Nutella will make a latte that is not overly sweet. If you prefer a sweeter drink, you may add more or sweeten to taste.
