Latte in the afternoon

Okay... So it's Saturday morning and you have a hankering for
a latte. Or maybe its Saturday afternoon and you want a yummy
rich coffee but your up to your elbows in a craft project?

The point is you don't feel like leaving the house to go wait
in line and drop a 5 spot for a coffee drink.

I have a good solution for you.

You can use regular coffee or instant. 
It doesn't matter, both will work.

In the microwave heat up about 4 oz of half and half.
In my microwave one minute is perfect.

Whole milk and skim milk work to, but will not be as 
rich tasting.

Now put a lid on and shake it vigorously for a count of 60.

Pour it in to your favorite mug and fill to the top
with coffee. Hint: I've been known to make my instant coffee
with only milk. 

Disclaimer: this is what I do in my microwave and my mug... 
All microwaves are different and of course the size of the mug would matter. 
Play around with it and see what you come up with. 
You can even go all crazy and get some of the flavor syrups that they have. 

No, its not Starbuck's, but there is something to be said for 
drinking a wonderful coffee, in your favorite mug, on your porch,
while the birds are chirping and before its 110 degrees out. 

I'm just saying. 
Have a great Saturday!

Not to mention doing it for pennies, versus dollars! IN a reusable stoneware mug too!!

Well done, darlin. I made iced coffees for my nieces when they come over (very little decaff not a big deal, and they're 12-16 and buy them at Starbucks anyway.)

I also make them drink a juice first haha.

Have a great weekend.


Your recipe sounds awesome! I love coffee so this is perfect for me. I cannot start my day without a cup or two of a rich latte. Thanks for sharing.
Enjoy your weekend.

Definitely must try this! I treat myself to a soy latte at least once a month, now I can make my own! TFS

Liz, you are a genius. I want to try this!
Also, are you still doing Fresh Cut Friday? I want to participate if you are now that I'm back to blogging. What is August's flower of the month?

Hi! New to your blog! I will have to try this! I love a splash of organic half and half in my morning 10 oz. of coffee. Yes, it's Gloria Jean's decaf buttered toffee...I drink it for taste and warmth, not the caffeine jolt. ;) I have just recently gotten into iced coffee...I finally dared to try it recently, and fell in love, and now wonder why I was such a scaredy cat dope not trying it sooner. LOL
