CARAMEL, COOKIES, VANILLA AND ICED LATTE'S






This is my breakfast. It's the other half of the Quest cookies and cream protein bar, one caramel protein pudding and vanilla protein yoghurt with no fat or sugar, plus some raspberries on top.








These are most of the ingredients I like to use for making iced latte's. It's an unsweetened almondmilk. A vanilla flavoured soymilk, some Stevia sweetner drops and some vanilla essence. You'll also need brown sugar, espresso and ice depending on what type of iced latte you want. For a simple one, full-fat milk, brown sugar, ice and espresso will do!



The one I made today was a vanilla flavoured sugarfree almondmilk latte of only 15 calories, but this is how you make an original iced latte:


Put around 1 large spoon of brown sugar in a cup, add around 2 large spoons of boiling hot water and stir until the sugar has turned liquid.

Add one espresso shot.

Add a lot of ice.

Add full-fat milk until glass is full and stir.


& this is how I make a vanilla latte with sugar that tastes like heaven on earth:


Put 1 small spoon of brown sugar in a cup, add around 1 and 1/2 large spoons of boiling hot water and stir until the sugar has turned liquid.

Add one espresso shot.

Add a lot of ice.

Add vanilla flavoured soymilk until full and stir.


& this is how I make the more sad, but basically calorie free version with the unsweetnened almondmilk.


Add one espresso shot to your cup, put in three to four drops of a vanilla essence and one to two drops of Stevia sweetner.

Add a lot of ice.

Pour in 100ml of unsweetened almondmilk and stir,


The first one is how they make it in the coffee shops and I swear it tastes exactly the same. You can adjust the amount of sugarwater, coffee and milk to your own preferance. The middle one with the vanilla soymilk tastes even better than the one you get in the coffee shops and I could drink it all day long. The last one is OK and a good alternative for when you're on a diet.


If you don't have an espresso maker at home you can brew an extra strong coffee by using very little water and it will work just as well. I'm also going to experiment by using brown false sugar by Sukrin called Sukrin gold, because I've baked chocolate chip cookies with that before and I know that it really does work. I bet my low calorie almondmilk version will taste 100 times better with that one and I could also use it for the one with soymilk or regular milk. If you don't have any of this you can also use white sugar, but no matter what you use just remember that it can quickly become way TOO sweet and it's always better to take less to begin with because if it get's too sweet it's a nightmare, that really tastes like muck. Also, getting the coffee too weak is something else that can ruin it, but on the whole this is extremely easy and anyone can do it.
