Cocoa Canella Caramel Tea Latte

So. After being 1.6 pounds down this week, I’m feeling pretty stellar. So, I wanted to share something super delicious with you all today. ❤ I love coffee and tea. Coffee is my first love, and will always be my preferred choice. I’m a frequent customer at Starbucks, but I do enjoy other cafes. I do like to mix it up with tea quite often and my Keurigs kcups are a mix of both coffee AND tea. So, it is natural that I have some tea latte recipes to add some variety to my usual coffee-dominated life. Here’s one that I really like.

Ingredients:

Tea: I used my Cocoa Canella Loose Leaf Tea I got from Davids Tea in Canada. You can use any tea you prefer.

Warm Milk (I find vanilla Soy or Almond to be the best. But regular cows milk works too, in a pinch).

Caramel: I made some caramel sauce at home. It’s pretty easy. Take a unopened can of sweetened condensed milk, put it in a crockpot (with the label off!), fill the pot with water to cover the can and let it cook on high for 3 hours. Done. Instant Caramel. I used about two tablespoons…

Cinnamon: To Taste. I just added a pinch or two. It all depends on your pallet. Nutmeg is also tasty on occasion.

Procedure:

1. Steep your tea! Follow the directions for your preferred tea.

2. Heat up Milk

3. Add Tea, Milk, Caramel and Cinnamon (or nutmeg) into a blender and give it a pulse or two to mix. You’ll also get a nice foam~

4. Sip and Enjoy. It’s…so….good.

It isn't Starbucks, but it'll do.
