Nutella Latte

This is a dangerous coffee, the sweet, salty, chocolaty coffee is a dessert in itself. It is a dessert coffee you don't have to go to the coffeehouse to get. If you can heat and froth your milk, and if you can make an espresso, you are good to go. No need to run out of your house to get your afternoon mocha fix.

Makes 1.

Ingredients:

  • 2 shots of espresso
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) milk (fat-free, whole milk or soy)
  • 1-2 teaspoon Vanilla syrup (homemade* or store bought)
  • 3 teaspoon Nutella (hazelnut spread)
  • sprinkle of sea salt flakes

* Vanilla syrup:

  • 1 cup (240 ml) water
  • 1 cup (200 g) sugar
  • ½ vanilla pod or 1 teaspoon vanilla paste

Directions:

* Vanilla syrup:

Heat the water with sugar and vanilla until the sugar is dissolved. Let the syrup cool down. This syrup will keep for 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator, stored in a clean container, rinsed with boiling water. 

Latte:

Make the espresso and stir in the syrup and Nutella. Heat and froth the milk and pour it in the cup on top of the espresso. Sprinkle with sea salt.

Enjoy.
