World’s easiest latte

I love my morning coffee. And, I love summer. But, sadly – the two cannot co-exist. The newly warm-ish weather strongly deters me from sipping on a piping hot mug for 45 minutes. That’s where the world’s easiest latte comes in.

First, pour a cup of milk into a glass jar. (I use 1%.)

Ball jar with milk

Add a dash of cinnamon.

milk + cinnamon

Put the lid on and shake it for around 30 seconds or until the milk doubles in size. Then, take the lid off and put the jar in the microwave for 45 seconds.

milk + cinnamon, shaken

Here’s the last step. Combine equal parts of frothy milk and coffee into your mug.

simple latte

That’s it. Literally the world’s easiest latte. Well, mostly. It’s not exactly a latte. I don’t use espresso, but after grinding dark roast beans and brewing a strong pot of coffee in my automatic drip machine, it really is hard to tell the difference. I adapted my recipe from one featured on Martha Stewart’s show, you can see the original recipe here.
