Anyone who has even a passing acquaintance with me knows I am a huge coffee fan. It’s not a competition, I just love coffee! Lately, with the sweltering heat, I’ve been reaching out for cold drinks rather than hot.
Back on Canada Day, I attempted to make maple fudge in honour of our country but failed miserably. Instead of a solid fudge, I had a thick syrup. Of course, like any good hostess, I had backup plans, but I was stuck with this maple concoction that I didn’t really know what to do with. I figured I would keep it as an ice cream topping option but that occasion would rise only few and far between. Last week I decided to make a cold drink at home and scoured the web for recipes and ideas. As much as I love caramel lattes, I wanted something within easy reach to make at home.
Enter my maple syrup! After a week of making this and trying different versions of the recipes, I’ve got this drink down to an art. I even made a double batch to bring with me on our camping trip (which you can read about here)!
Frozen Maple Latte
Enough for 2 medium glasses
- 6 oz of espresso
- 3 heaping tbsp maple syrup
- 1 1/2 cup 2% milk
- 6 or 7 coffee ice cubes (regular ice cubes will do in a pinch!)
Blend espresso and syrup together on high until sugar is dissolved.
Add milk and ice cubes to blender and blend on high until ice is dissolved and concoction is frothy.
Pour into glass, top with a dollop of whipped cream and enjoy!
