  • vanilla latte?

    So I'm addicted to vanilla lattes but want to avoid the milk. Has anyone tried coconut milk latte? I have an expresso machine and milk steamer so I can make it at home, so am wondering what would be the best brand of coconut milk to buy to try one out. I imagine it tastes nothing like a regular starbucks vanilla latte, but I should try

    Native Forest or Thai Kitchen. Tasty stuff

    I know you're trying to avoid milk, but do consider raw cream or grass fed organic heavy cream (Kalona Supernatural is great, so is Strauss Creamery)

      Yeah, I'm gonna try those two milks but am doubtful they will taste well in a latte. Worth a shot though. So for milk and cream, is fat free, 2% bad? I have heard conflicting opinions on raw milk and cream. Some people swear by it others say it is too dangerous. My local all natural store stopped carrying it for safety reasons I believe.

        I wouldn't go fat-free anything when it comes to dairy! Go full-fat if you have the option.

          so full fat is healthier? I'm so used to 1% and nonfat milk.

                Lol... Please just actually read what Primal is before asking questions, you'll save both of us LOTS of time.

                      Soy milk is the most processed food on the planet. Amongst other things. Drop it now!

                        Find a local coffee shop that uses fresh espresso. Good coffee and tea need no sweetener.

                          I learned the most magical of words: breve. Ask for this at your good coffee shop, and you'll get your drink made with half-and-half or cream. Confuses the hell out of Starbucks baristas, but a breve cappuccino is a wonderful thing. Also, any good place should use whole milk by default, IMO. I love my fave coffee place--the staff cringe when people order things with skim milk.

                          Also, if you want vanilla, add actual vanilla extract. Artificial flavours are nasty. Once your palate adjusts, you'll find that steamed dairy is sweet all by itself (the steaming breaks down the sugars), and you should be able to enjoy your latte without the horror that is sugar-free syrup.

                            that looks great! what almond milk brand did you use? how much stevia did you use? gonna try this. I imagine if you steam the milk it will taste good too? not sure how almond milk tastes steamed though.

                              I'll have to try a breve capuchino next time I'm at sbux. Any idea if they use cream or half and half with their breves? Can you only get capuchinos breve? or can you get lattes this way too?
