Cinnamon Dolce Latte

Honestly this drink is pretty close to a Starbucks copycat. Except for the fact that you’re making it yourself, wuuuuttt. Crazy, I know. This coffee is made specifically with cinnamon and literally means “cinnamon sweet milky coffee.” It’s super cute and pretty simple too! I love this one in the fall as soon as the leaves start to turn. The cinnamon makes me want to wear sweaters year-round!

Ingredients:

-¼ cup of water
-¼ cup of brown sugar
-⅛ tsp cinnamon

-cup of coffee
-1 cup of milk

-1 tbsp sugar
-⅛ tsp cinnamon

Instructions:

-boil cinnamon, sugar and water to create a cinnamon syrup
-in a separate pan warm the milk and then froth
-make a cup of coffee or espresso (your choice)
-put cinnamon syrup in a mug, pour in your coffee then add the milk froth
-sprinkle with cinnamon sugar

Extras and Tips: Cinnamon Style!

The Cinnamon Dolce Latte can be made both hot or cold whether you heat the milk and froth it or pour it over ice! Perfect for anytime of the year. In the above recipe, the cinnamon syrup mixture is made from scratch, but you can totally swap that out for a cinnamon syrup premade! Most grocery stores carry a lot of coffee products, and you can easily find this syrup or even order it online. Although if you don’t mind the extra steps, I highly recommend making your own. Straight from the kitchen tastes the best in my opinion and there’s something satisfying about sipping your own homemade drink!

Dulce vs Dolce

There isn’t much of a difference when it comes to these two words and often times, they’re very interchangeable. Both mean sweet and used in many recipes. Dulce, spelled with a U, comes from the Spanish language whereas dolce, with an O, originates from Italy. In general, most drink are used with the “dolce” version since dulce usually refers to sweet candy treats and not so much liquids. Regardless of the differences both can be used in many contexts and most of the time no one will correct the technicalities of it! 

The bottom line is the fact that this drink is warm and filling and perfect for early mornings or later nights. I love the milk frothed and it fills me up especially when I’m craving something a little sweet and healthy too! Hope you enjoy!!
