It’s summer. We’re still pretty much locked down. I’m back to my natural state of NOT BEING A MORNING PERSON. This is my lazy iced latte. It takes about a minute to make.
#AllergicToEverything Lazy Iced Latte
An easy way to get your morning caffine: a lazy, iced latte with almond milk.
- 1-2 tsp instant coffee
- 1-2 scoops stevia extract powder or 4 drops liquid, or sweetener of choice
- 1 inch hot water
- ice enough to fill your glass
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or any milk
- 1 splash or dash vanilla or cinnamon optional
- 1 splash half and half optional, if you're feeling indulgent
Get out a tall glass. Add the instant coffee and stevia. Pour about an inch of hot water into the glass. Mix with a knife if your glass is tall and skinny 😉
Add enough ice to the mixture to fill the glass. Pour over milk of choice until glass is full. Stir it up.
Add a splash of half and half or vanilla or cinnamon to jazz it up if you like!
Move to the couch.
Adding a splash of half and half gives this quick latte recipe a rich feel. Same thing with flavorings – vanilla, cinnamon, ginger – add whatever you like.
If you are going to do yoga, btw – this is my current fav. Julia Marie will kick your ass but it feels good. I’m doing this 30 day challenge for the second time and it’s still A CHALLENGE. Exercise is definitely part of staying sane these days.
