  • Easy Breezy Brown Sugar Latte

    CLICK HERE to subscribe to our weekly emails on finding and brewing amazing coffee!

    I don’t know about you, but cool, rainy fall weather makes me just want to curl up on the couch with a warm drink! This super simple latte can be your new go-to on those days when you’re not really wanting to drag yourself out of your all-too-comfortable abode.

    The ingredients are almost always on hand in the kitchen and the smooth sweetness from the brown sugar warms your soul right up!

    How to Make It

    To make this, you’ll need 1 cup strong brewed coffee, ½ cup milk of your choosing (I used whole), 1 TBSP brown sugar ( I do prefer my lattes less sweet so feel free to double if you have a sweeter tooth), and whipped cream/ caramel sauce for drizzling (optional).

    brown sugar latte ingredients

    First, brew your coffee. Note that we’ll be using the shaken mason jar method, so you won’t need a milk frother. But if you have one, you’re welcome to use it. 

    add brown sugar to milk

    Combine 1 tbsp of brown sugar with your 1/2 cup of milk in a mason jar.

    microwave mixture

    Next, place the mason jar mixture in the microwave (no lid) and heat for 1 minute. If you have a milk frother, you can also warm the milk and sugar on the stove and then froth!

    mason jar frothing technique

    Once you’re done heating it. Secure the lid tightly and shake until frothy. 

    add milk to coffee

    Pour your freshly frothed milk over your hot coffee.

    You may stop here and enjoy the latte as-is. Or, if you’re a sucker for sweetness, you can continue onto the next step.

    Top with whipped cream and caramel drizzle for a sweet finishing touch!
