Brown Sugar Latte Recipe

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.

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!

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.
