5 Latte Recipes For Fall

I m a devout lover of all things coffee. Though I m not too addicted I would surely give up my morning breakfast before I would give up my morning coffee. I m in love love with my daily morning latte. As soon as I wake up every day, after doing my usual morning stuff I take my zombie-like, half awake walk directly into my kitchen, brew my coffee, froth my milk and prepare myself a warm cup of happiness and then I go and start my day. Now it is true I cannot start my day without a coffee but I only drink one cup coffee a day not more than that. I drink cafe latte specifically. Every now and then I crave for something different or a little different I would say. I mean who doesn’t want to add new flavors to life. The day I discovered these coffee drinks was just one of those days. These fall-inspired latte recipes are creamy and satisfying, a perfect way to get your caffeine jolt for the day.

Mint Latte

Wake me up with a mint green tea latte anytime any day. I have been drinking this mint tea latte every time I want a noncaffeinated drink. The nice depth of flavors and the froth made from the frother creates the perfect texture. I used whole milk and brown sugar as sweeteners but feel free to add some honey if you want to sweeten up your latte.

  1. Half a cup hot water
  2. Tea bag
  3. 1 tbsp Brown sugar
  4. One cup froth milk.

How to:

  • Boil half a cup of water for about 30 sec.
  • Add mint flavored green tea bag to it. And let it rest for few minutes.
  • Add a tablespoon of sugar to the cup and mix.
  • Now froth a cup of milk in a frother or mixer and add it to the green tea mix.
  • Your frothy mint tea latte is ready.

  2. 1&1/2 tsp turmeric
  3. A cup of milk

Earl Grey Tea Latte

What else can be a better way to start your fall without some hot beverages and I advise you cozying up with a rose and earl grey tea latte.

So far I m off to a good start because I m thrilled with how this tea latte turned out. For me, I m addicted to earl grey tea and for this latte recipe, earl grey was a perfect choice. The result is a luscious, warm and insanely aromatic cup of tea.

Dirty Chai Latte

I first heard about the DIRTY CHAI LATTE this fall over Pinterest, while going through some vegan latte recipe to try this October. I was so intrigued by the recipe since chai lattes are already one of my favorites drinks and I had a sneaking suspicion that it could only become better with the addition of a shot of espresso. I learned how to make them and they tasted insanely delicious and so I decided to add it to my fall latte recipe list. Not lying but this dirty chai latte has now come to replace my usual chai latte and coffee as a drink of choice.

Ingredients:

  1. One cup milk
  2. A dash of Cinnamon
  3. One tablespoon Honey
  4. 2shots espresso
  5. 2drops of vanilla essence
  6. Chai tea mixture

How to:

  • Boil half a cup of water.
  • Add black tea bags to it or you can use open leaves and boil it in water. Let the mixture rest for few minutes.
  • Now add a dash of cinnamon to the mix.
  • Next, add 2 drops of vanilla essence and one tablespoon of honey.
  • Now add 1-2 shots of espresso to the above mix. You can add shots as per your taste.
  • I don’t like strong coffee so I used one shot.
  • Now froth a cup of milk and add it to the above mix to get your desired dirty chai latte.
