Skinny Almond Latte – 47 calories

Skinny Almond Latte – 47 calories

I get questions daily asking what kind of coffee creamer I use, but I don’t use one… I just make myself a fancy latte in under 2 minutes! All you need to make these lattes is a small whisk and a minute or two of you time.

Try them out yourself, want a vanilla latte? Just take out the almond extract and double the vanilla extract.

Makes 2 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 1 cup Almond milk, or milk of your choice
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. almond extract
  • 2 tsp. Sugar or Sugar in the raw- optional

Get started:

-Heat the milk in a small sauce pan on medium low heat. Once warmed whisk briskly and constantly to create foam.

-Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, almond extract and coffee and serve. Add in sugar, please use only real sugar no substitutes.*

Nutrition information:

Each serving has:

  • Calories: 47
  • Fat: 1
  • Fiber: .5
  • Protein: .5
  • Carbs: 7

* Sugar substitutes have been proven to cause fat storage and weight gain, plus all kinds of terrible other side effects… Is that really worth saving 16 calories? I promise you, the whisking alone will burn off that 1 teaspoon of sugar (again ONLY 16 CALORIES!) Or… just leave out the sugar.

Try different flavors, change the extract and you have a totally different latte:

Almond Latte- use almond extract
Almond Roca Latte- almond extract & 5 dark chocolate chips
White Chocolate Latte- vanilla extract & 5 white chocolate chips
Original Latte- skip the extract
Vanilla Latte- use vanilla extract

Or try my COLD Blended Mocha Cappuccino, it tastes just like a fancy coffee house drink for under 125 calories!

HAPPY COOKING!
