2. Vanilla Swirl (Homemade Coffee Recipes To Pump You Up #2)
But, if you are a coffee lover, I know you don’t mind another coffee conversation. And another latte recipe. This time a vanilla latte recipe that makes a healthy and yummy vanilla latte. Since you’re here, I’m going to assume you’ll take a latte over plain coffee any day. I completely understand. Lattes, especially flavored ones, taste better than black coffee for many people. They are also better for relaxing moments. Most people, including me, associate plain coffee with busy mornings when everything is rushed and not enjoyed properly. A latte, on the other hand, is the type of coffee you drink when you meet your friends or family for conversation and a good time. Am I right? Either way, a vanilla latte tastes good. It’s such a classic. If you’re wondering what is a vanilla latte, well, it’s basically a latte with vanilla flavors. You can probably get it at any coffee shop, however, I would love for you to learn how to make a vanilla latte at home. Why? Because…a homemade latte is healthier; a homemade latte is cheaper; and you can adjust the flavors to fit your taste. Want to be jumping around like a spry vanilla bean in no time? This recipe, while still sweet and super delicious, is free of artificially flavored coffee syrups, preventing you from experiencing a hardcore crash later on.

Years and years ago, this hot drink was one of the original specialty drinks on Starbucks’ menu. All these years later, it’s still very popular even though they’ve added so many more snazzy hot and cold drinks to choose from now. Well, even with all the new drinks, this classic is still my favorite. We make it at home a lot. The combo of coffee and chocolate is so perfect. One complements the other. On top of all that, making it at home saves a nice amount of money. You know how expensive it can run just for one hot drink. Try this simple-to-make recipe. It’s a winner!

5. Matcha and Espresso Fusion (Homemade Coffee Recipes To Pump You Up #5)
Starbucks unveiled this matcha espresso fusion, created specifically for the Asian market, in late 2016. I was very intrigued by this beautiful layered drink and wanted to give it a try. I love drinking coffee and matcha latte separately, but wondered how it would taste when they are combined together. It is the BOMB and I’ll definitely make this regularly! Can’t decide between tea or coffee? Now you don’t have to. Matcha, carrying loads of health benefits, couples with espresso in an unexpectedly scrumptious way. This chilled drink will ensure you’re at peak productivity all day.
To make simple syrup, combine equal amount of sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil. Once the sugar completely dissolves, turn off the heat.
