Coffee is a big deal in my house. We love to go to that big name coffee place and grab a specialty coffee but gosh darn it, there isn’t one close by and they are expensive. So, we decided to work on making some of our favorites at home using our Keurig and Green Mountain Coffees NEW Barista Prima Coffeehouse K-Cup portion packs.
We have had a little too much fun doing so. I brought you our homemade version of a Pumpkin Spiced Latte HERE. Today, we are making a Salted Caramel Mocha Latte! It just happens to be my favorite. Coffee, Caramel and Chocolate, how can you go wrong?
Salted Caramel Mocha Latte
1 cup milk, steamed
1 cup very strong coffee (I used Green Mountain Coffees NEW Barista Prima Coffeehouse K-Cup Italian Roast but any of the stronger blends will work)
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 and 1/2 tablespoons caramel coffee syrup (I bought mine at our local dollar store. Feel free to adjust to your taste)
1/8 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
Prepare your Keurig and brew 1 cup of coffee
In a pot, heat up one cup of milk until it is steaming. Froth the milk with a wire whisk or a blender until it is nice and foamy.
~If you use a blender…make sure you put your lid on good. I had a BIG mess. LOL~
In your coffee cup, mix together the prepared coffee, cocoa powder, sugar, and caramel coffee syrup until the sugar and cocoa powder are dissolved and there are no lumps. Pour the milk foam over the top of the coffee/mocha mixture and stir. Top with whipped cream, a generous drizzle of caramel sauce, and your pinch of salt. Another way you can play with this recipe…since I do not liked whipped cream on top of mine I simply added the caramel sauce and salt into my cup and mixed it up. DE-lic-ious!! Think I will go have another.
How easy is that? Yep, simple! And delicious! And costs so much less than visiting a coffee-shop!
