Change up your coffee routine with this Maple Cinnamon Latte. It’s easy to make at home and the perfect drink to pair with breakfast on a cool morning.
Thanks to LACTAID® for sponsoring this post!
Today I have a fun little drink recipe to share with you guys. I know those are kinda few and far between here on the bean and that’s because honestly, I mostly drink water and that’s it. But I do, with the exception of the first several weeks of this pregnancy, enjoy my morning coffee. Although I usually drink it black with just a splash of milk, sometimes it’s fun to change things up.
You may not know it, but Thursday is actually National Coffee Day. To celebrate, I’m teaming up with my friends at LACTAID® to share this Maple Cinnamon Latte with you guys. It combines two of the ways I change up my coffee routine when I’m in the mood – lattes and a sprinkle of cinnamon…but also adds a fall twist thanks to the maple syrup!
As you guys might recall, I’ve been working with LACTAID® this year on their No More #DairyEnvy Campaign. It’s near and dear to my heart since I struggled with lactose intolerance in high school and college. Their milk is real dairy, just without the lactose so people with dairy sensitivities can enjoy them too!
When they asked me to create a drink to celebrate National Coffee Day at home, a latte immediately came to mind. I used LACTAID® milk instead of regular milk so that my dairy-sensitive friends could enjoy one right along with me and I’d encourage you to do the same!Start your morning off right with this Maple Cinnamon Latte.Click To Tweet
Here’s how you make it:
Note- you do need a milk frother to make this…but they’re fairly inexpensive. I like this one (affiliate link) but there are some even cheaper! Buy one and keep it with your coffee supplies for when you feel like getting a little fancy!
Hope you guys enjoy this tasty fall treat as much as I did!
