Notes

RECIPE TIP: There are lots of ways to experiment with café latte. For a dairy-free version, replace the whole milk with a milk alternative, such as soy, oat, or coconut milk. You can also experiment by adding flavor to your lattes, such as caramel, vanilla, or blackberry syrup.
FUN FACT: You can easily make this drink iced. It’s actually easier than making a hot latte. Simply make the espresso and add cold milk and ice. No need for steamed milk!
