🌹 Easy ways to make a traditional latte a little more romantic

Here are a few things to add to a normal latte to turn it into a romantic drink:

  • A dusting of cocoa powder
  • A sprinkle of chocolate shavings
  • A sprinkle of freeze-dried raspberries
  • Strawberry or raspberry syrup
  • A couple of tablespoons of chocolate syrup
  • Dairy-Free Whipped Cream (add some red food coloring to make bright red whipped cream!)
  • Add edible flower petals (roses, hibiscus, and forget-me-nots are great choices)

🥣 How to make a latte

There are only 2 ingredients needed to make a latte: coffee and milk.

For the coffee part, I like to make French Press Espresso. It’s really simple (just like making a very strong coffee) and tastes just as good as espresso in coffee drinks. I add an espresso shot or two to each drink, depending on how strong I need it that day.

For the hot milk, ideally, you’ll froth it with a milk frother. I have a handheld one that cost me about £10 on amazon, and it is impressive! I’ve made coffees for years in various barista jobs and, it may not be as good as a wand that makes steamed milk on an espresso machine, but it does make silky smooth, fine bubbles which are great for latte art.

The types of milk I recommend are whole milk, or a “barista” alternative milk like barista oat milk (oatly is great, in the grey carton), coconut milk, or almond milk.

How to make a latte at home

  1. Make French Press Espresso.
  2. While the ground coffee beans are steeping, heat the milk over medium heat until it is hot but not boiling.
  3. Use a milk frother and froth the milk until it is shiny.
  4. Pour 1-2 shots of espresso into a mug along with any flavored syrup or simple syrup.
  5. Give it a good stir and then pour in the milk.
