To truly make the most decadent coffee drinks at home, you need to invest in an Aerolatte.
It’s one of the best kitchen tools under $15 you’ll ever invest in. It’s awesome for frothing any kind of milk.
We also like to use it to whip up our hot chocolates.
Frothing doesn’t add any extra calories, just extra decadence.
To take your peppermint latte over the top, don’t forget to top it with Homemade Whipped Cream.
And don’t tell, but I find an occasional candy cane stir stick just makes me feel all holiday-y inside.
You can find organic candy canes at Whole Foods Market.
Once you’ve made the peppermint syrup for your homemade peppermint lattes, it can be stored in the fridge in a jar. It makes several lattes – it all depends on how much you use per latte.
Don’t want the caffeine of a latte? Why not add the peppermint syrup to a hot chocolate? nom nom nom
