For a hot dairy free drink that is healthy and easy to make you will love this dairy free maple latte that is refined sugar free. I don’t like spending a lot of money on expensive coffee drinks so I make my own versions at home. I love using steamed milk with strong coffee to make a latte. This recipes heats everything together on the stove top, but you can use a mason jar and the microwave just as well. Here are the instructions on how to froth milk in a mason jar.
I like to use maple syrup or honey to sweeten my homemade lattes. They are great natural sweeteners that give different tastes to a latte. Honey is more mild flavor and works well for making a vanilla latte. While the maple syrup has an obvious taste that it brings. Always add your sweetener to your milk and then heat and froth it. A latte from a coffee shop adds the flavored syrup to the milk before steaming it.
Dairy free milk doesn’t foam as much as dairy. So it is important that you use a milk like coconut, coconut/almond blend or an oat milk. They have a richer flavor since they are more fatty then rice or almond milk. and froth better than almond or rice milk.
