    Hi Everyone,

    I am looking for a quick and easy recipe to make a healthy latte.

    Has anyone got one or could possibly recommend ingredient to make one.
    I am intending to use almond milk and cinammon as substitute to sugar.

    Kind Regards,

    ;)

    Healthy latte

    Try this - I made it with a store brand almond milk and it was pretty tasty:

    1 cup almond milk - steamed gently or heated gently and whipped because the fats in almond milk are more delicate than cow milk fat. I have a battery powered frother that works really well
    shot of espresso

    Pour frothy milk onto espresso over back of spoon, sprinkle with the cinnamon. You could also add some vanilla for extra yumminess.

    You could also make this with brewed chai tea and frothy almond milk.

    enjoy,
    elle

    I'm not a coffee drinker, but I love to mix a half scoop of whey protein in my cup of keurig dark hot chocolate. You have to stir alot to get the whey protein to dissolve completely, but it turns a treat into a yummy protein drink. It tastes great. Maybe you could use it in your coffee????

    Nathalie,

    I must warn you, a foamy latte may make you farty and bloated :eek::D;). If you've ever watched the movie Zoolander, you'll find that funny. BUT it's true! Well at least in my case it is :eek:. So hold the foam please :D.

    Coconut milk is very tasty, and of course almond milk too. Make sure you use a good espresso...it makes all the difference! I also like to sprinkle pure cocoa powder on the top :p. Oh, another goodie for the holiday season is pumpkin spice! I've been putting it in everything lately; oatmeal, coffee, protein shakes :p.

    Natasha

    (ps- I make egg eggnog latte's too around this time of year. YES they are not the healthiest :rolleyes:, but damn are they ever GOOD ;))

    Hi Natasha,

    It funny you have posted your warning....I am actually trying to recover from a digestive inflamation...highly heated foaming almond milk and/ or soya milk is not for me! I have never experienced bloated stomach.
    On top of that I have a cold...temperature are low in UK these days ;-(.
    Never mind.

    Thanks for the recipe...I will try coconut milk. Also will make sure I do not highly heat almond milk!

    Take care Natasha,

    To Renee,

    There is no way I am building a reputation of being a "gas pollutant" lol.... No more excessively risky foaming latte for me:eek::eek:

    Kind Regards,

    Nathalie

    Hello everyone,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this thread.

    I am feeling much better now... I really dislike the horrible discomforting feeling of blocked bowel :eek::eek::eek:

    Today I made a latte substitute with chia tea, instant coffee and cow milk (semi- milk i.e nearly no fat milk, could not have soya or almond milk at least not now!). The chia tea really does add flavour...No need for any creamy foam. No disgracious pollution :D:eek:

    To Exercise lover---I have a tab of vanilla whey protein I hardly consume--- Now I know how I am going to have my protein healthy drink snack ;););)
    Thanks so much

    Take care everyone,
