Copycat Caramel Brûlée Latte THM-FP with an S option
You know that coffee chain that sells a delicious Caramel Brûlée Latte, but only during a few months in the winter, and it´s loaded with sugar? Now you can have a healthy one anytime, and it´s even an FP (low fat, low carb)! It´s perfect for any mom running low on sleep! (Or anyone in general, but I may just currently be low on sleep 😅). It´s cold and snowy here, we´re in a winter weather advisory with temperature highs BELOW 0 the next several days, and my 6 year old came down with his first ever stomach bug yesterday. Needless to say, this latte really hit the spot this afternoon!
For this recipe you will need:
1/3 cup THM approved brown sugar substitute that measures like sugar (I use Brown Swerve)
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp. butter
4 drops butter extract
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk (I prefer cashew milk)
1 cup brewed coffee
1 - 2 Tbsp. collagen
Fat Free Reddi Wip (optional)
Bring water and brown sugar substitute to a boil in a small saucepan and boil for 4 minutes, while whisking almost continuously. Reduce heat, add butter, and simmer 2 more minutes, while continuing to whisk often. Take pan off heat. Add nut milk, butter extract, and vanilla. This is your ¨sweet milk mixture.¨ In a large mug, add brewed coffee, collagen, and part of the sweet milk mixture to taste, and froth. Save the rest of the sweet milk mixture in the fridge to easily have another latte a different time. Top drink with Reddi Wip, if desired.
*I use between 1/3 and 1/2 cup of the sweet milk mixture in one drink. I like things pretty sweet, so adjust according to your preferences.
*To make this a delicious, decadent S, add a few Tbsp. of Half and Half or heavy cream before frothing. You can even add a Tbsp. or two of Half and Half and still keep this in FP mode depending on the fat content of anything you might be eating with it.
This is one of my absolute favorite kitchen tools! I have had mine for several months, and wish I would have gotten it sooner. I use it multiple times a day! I used to use my immersion blender to make coffee drinks, but it was a hassle to get it out, and clean, and it was also way too powerful and made a mess. This handy little frother runs on batteries, takes up very little space in my silverware drawer, and when I´m done with it I quickly rinse it off, and put it away. It has just the right amount of power for a coffee drink, too.
