I'm not a huge coffee drinker due to my stomachs lack of love for lactose however once in a while on a Saturday morning I will indulge in a creamy almond milk coffee and guess what I make it right in the comfort of my own home. Yep, creamy latte style coffee in minutes and without the aid of a machine. This is such a simple tutorial I feel almost silly even sharing it but occasionally even the simplest of tasks can be downright impossible to achieve without a few step by step hints along the way. These steps shared feature the way in which my mum likes her coffee; milky and sweet. However you can adapt it to whatever your own preference's are and just follow the steps with your own ingredients.
Creamy Barista Style Coffee
+ milk (semi-skimmed or full fat)
+ coffee (decaf or regular)
+ sugar (Demerara or white)
You will need:
+ microwavable cup
+ Fill cup nearly to the top with milk
+ Place in microwave and heat until the milk just begins to bubble (shown in images above) usually around one to two minutes depending on the wattage of your microwave. I have an 850W and it takes 1 min 30 secs.
+ Remove from microwave and add sugar immediately followed by the coffee.
+ Stir well until completely mixed into the hot milk.
+ Return cup of coffee to the microwave for one final 30 second heat.
+ Remove and enjoy
See? I told you it was ridiculously easy and yes whilst it's not overly frothy it has got the most deliciously creamy smooth taste reminiscent of your local coffee shop.
