A Festive Dulce De Leche Latte

by - Monday, December 18, 2017

Are you ready for the holidays? I have just a few gifts left to wrap and then I can focus on enjoying the season. We'll be hosting both our annual Pancakes & Pajamas party, and Christmas so things around here will be lively and fun. I can't wait to welcome family and friends into our home.

The holidays for me are all about tradition. There's a comfort I feel by doing things the same way I've done them in the past so while the Christmas dinner menu might change, I always set the table with our fine china, Sean always makes his lemon tart for dessert, and we end the evening with a good cup of coffee.

It's no secret I'm addicted to my espresso machine. I start each day with a latte or cappuccino. I've cut back on sugar in my coffee but milk in my coffee is something I will never ever give up! ;)

When the folks at Dairy Farmers of Canada reached out to tell me about their A Glass For Santa video, I realized that milk is part of my holiday memories too. Not just in that glass we leave out on Christmas Eve, but in our baking memories and hot chocolate memories and coffee with friends memories too.

The holidays require something special so I wanted to share a quick and easy recipe for a festive coffee. This is the season to treat yourself, right? Indulge in it for an afternoon treat or quickly whip it up to impress those unexpected guests.

This Dulce De Leche Latte combines coffee with the rich caramel goodness of dulce de leche. You can make dulce de leche using whole milk, or buy it pre-made from the grocery store. I've made this using my espresso machine but you could also use a strong brewed coffee and frothy milk made at home just as easily.

Mmm, I'm looking forward to enjoying a few of these lattes over the next few weeks. But there are some instances when only a simple, cold cup of milk will do...

Sharing that glass of milk and cookies with my husband around midnight is a fond memory too. Any parents out there relate? What are some of your favourite holiday traditions?
