This delightful concoction combines the rich, robust flavors of coffee with the natural sweetness of maple syrup, creating a symphony of autumnal bliss in every sip.

Maple Cinnamone Latte
1 cup of milk (dairy or non-dair)_
Whipped cream (optional)
Ground cinnamon (for garnish)
Optional: to add protein and make this more of a meal, add vanilla protein powder instead of the stevia listed above. This will also make the drink slightly thicker.
Step 1: Brew the Coffee
Start by brewing a shot of espresso using your espresso machine. If you don't have an espresso machine, you can use strong brewed coffee instead. Make sure it's hot and fresh.
Step 2: Heat the Milk
In a small saucepan, heat the milk over medium-low heat. Be sure not to let it boil; you want it to be hot but not scalded. You can also use a microwave to heat the milk. Heat it for about 1-2 minutes, depending on your microwave's power.
Step 3: Mix in Maple Syrup and Vanilla
While the milk is heating, add the maple syrup and vanilla extract to your espresso or coffee. Stir well to combine. This step ensures that the maple syrup is evenly distributed throughout your latte.
Step 4: Froth the Milk
Once the milk is hot, remove it from the heat source and use a milk frother to create a rich, velvety foam. If you don't have a frother, you can achieve a similar effect by vigorously whisking the hot milk until it becomes frothy.
Step 5: Assemble Your Maple Latte
Pour the maple-infused espresso or coffee into a large coffee mug. Then, slowly pour the frothy milk over the coffee, holding back the foam with a spoon to let the milk flow first. This will create a beautiful layered effect.
Step 6: Garnish and Enjoy
If you'd like, top your maple latte with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon. The whipped cream adds a luxurious touch, while the cinnamon enhances the warm, comforting aroma of your latte.
