Cinnamon Latte Recipe
It is that time of year when you want a warm hug from within. You reach for the Folgers in your cup and think today is the day I want a twist on the old classic. I deserve a treat. I have to run the children to school after making sure they have washed, put on clean clothes, flossed and brushed for at least two minutes, I have paid the bills, gotten dinner in the crockpot. It is now my time. You know the time of day that you make something special for yourself, and you sit back and enjoy the memories. You know life is about memories.
Today, I am reflecting on her. You know my little girl she has grown from a cotton candy wielding diva, a dancer, soccer player, and student. She is a great sister and the perfect daughter. You realize because your husband told you that she is like you. This at first scares you then you move to being surprised. You are then thankful because it is better to be a leader than a follower and you know the choices she makes will be her own. You smile as the whipped cream from the latte lands on your lip. You realize this drink requires you to invite someone else to join and create new memories. You then invite your daughter to a late afternoon Folgers® Latte because even though you enjoyed your peace and quiet your realize her smile is more rewarding than silence.
You pick your children up at school. You explain that it is daughter date day, and you have made something special. Her version has one spoonful of latte and a cup of whip cream and steamed milk. She, of course, bounces up the stairs with joy and song in her voice. She then joins you at the table with a tiara on her head. She explains this is the best day ever. She proposes a toast to Girls ruling the world and something about being a great mom when she gets older. You smile, but you know that will happen. She has the love in her heart and the fight in her soul to make her dreams come to fruition. She understands life is about moments.
Latte Recipe for you and your loved ones or just for you!
½ mug Folgers® coffee
½ mug half n half or 2% milk, steaming hot (see instructions on how to steam milk)
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp of sugar or sweetener, to taste
Tip to make steamed Milk or half and half
use 2% milk
1) Get a jar put in as much milk as you normally use. You will need to leave room for the milk to foam.
2) Put the lid on the jar
3) Shake the milk for 20 seconds
4) Take off the lid of the jar
5) Microwave the milk for 30 seconds
Now you will need to mix the coffee, steamed half n half or milk then add sugar. I top mine with whipped cream and sprinkle it with ground cinnamon.
Now it is the best part of waking up Folgers® in your cup “fancy style” with cinnamon and spice and everything nice! For more special moments and Folger product information check out the Folgers’ website.
