There is a cool front that has rolled through town this week and I couldn't be more excited about crisp mornings and the ability to leave my windows open all day. This has to be my favorite time of year because I get to break out my cozy sweaters, the holidays aren't far away, and an afternoon cup of coffee is always welcomed. Because I work from home, I am not always able to get to a coffee shop when I want the perfect latte, so luckily for me International Delight® One Touch Latte'™ makes creating the perfect latte at home a no brainer in just three easy steps! I took it a step further and created a caramel latte pumpkin affogato that is everything I love about fall into one mug!
You may be thinking it's too good to be true that you could make the perfect latte at home without special equipment, but with One Touch Latte'™ all it takes is three easy steps! Fill cup 2/3 with coffee to leave room for froth. Shake the One Touch Latte'™ can. Press and hold the can above coffee to cream to desired sweetness and enjoy! Doesn't get any easier than that! How perfect would this be during the holiday season when you are entertaining your holiday guests? Basically a built in barista in your refrigerator! (Yes please!) I stocked my fridge by grabbing the Caramel and Vanilla flavors in the creamer section at my local Walmart!
As if One Touch Latte'™ isn't delicious enough on it's own, I like to whip up a batch of my pumpkin ice cream and make a latte affogato by combining the two, creating the ultimate coffee drink or dessert! A traditional affogato is ice cream that has a little espresso poured over top, so I thought why can't you do the same thing with a latte? Simply use your favorite coffee, press the One Touch Latte'™ hard for for a frothy latte and then drop a scoop or two of pumpkin ice cream in the mug to create the perfect after dinner coffee treat!
If you want to see the whole process in action make sure to check out an International Delight® One Touch Latte in-store demo taking place at select Walmart stores over the days of November 11-12!
I am wiling to be that you are like me and love a special coffee any time of day! If that is the case, I feel confident that you are going to be obsessed with International Delight® One Touch Latte'™ as much as I am!
