Deborah’s Kitchen- A Healthy Vanilla Latte (Beach Body Latte)

The following recipe is for a 16oz Vanilla Latte:

4 oz of brewed coffee (I use decaf in the afternoon)

4 oz of 1% fat milk

3/4 tablespoon of Agave syrup

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

In a glass mug, mix the Agave syrup into the warm coffee (if the coffee is warm, the syrup with distribute evenly, making it possible to use less sweetener). Fill a 16 oz glass with approximately 8 ounces of ice, and pour the sweetened coffee into the glass. Add the milk and vanilla extract then stir.

Sugar: 17.5 grams or 4.3 teaspoons

Sugar: 36 grams or 9 teaspoons

    Could you substitute the Agave syrup for stevia?

    I’ve used agave in cold liquid and it’s always mixed evenly. And I cringe at the idea of pouring warm coffee over ice. I’d rather have cold brewed coffee so I don’t have to worry about watering it down with ice. Otherwise it sounds like a good solution to the coffee shop options.

    Any “healthy” sweetener will work in my Beach Body Vanilla Latte. Sometimes I use Xylitol. But remember that any sweetener that ends in “ol” is a sugar alcohol. Some people may get a loose stool from sugar alcohol. I most often use agave. But a little goes a long way since it is so sweet. Enjoy!

    Do you think fat free lactose free milk will work?

    That should work just find. Sometimes I use Coconut Milk too. Adds a little extra flavor-yum!

    Use coffee to make ice cubes, then they will not water your coffee drinks down.
