When you’re in need of a little pick-me-up and but don’t want to go to a cafe, I highly recommend making this homemade iced salted honey latte recipe. AND, this homemade latte doesn’t require a fancy espresso machine! All you need is a jar (or container with a lid) and a microwave!
You’re going to fall in love with this recipe so much!
After making a latte at home without an espresso machine, I honestly asked myself why I hadn’t done it sooner!
While you may be used to hearing ‘salted caramel’ as a flavor combination – which, I admit is a awesome (I mean, I have shared a recipe for the best salted caramel chocolate chip cookies) – have you ever tried salted honey?
Years ago I had an iced salted honey latte at a cafe, and I could not stop thinking about it.
Every time I went back, I would ask for the drink, but they changed their specials and were never able to replicate it.
As I’ve been bombarded with so much work lately, I’ve felt like a busy bee, and as I was dreaming up sitting in a cafe relaxing, I knew it was a salted honey latte I’d want to be drinking.
Do you prefer iced or hot drinks? For me, it’s iced all the way! Even in the dead of winter, I love a nice iced beverage!
Ok, now lets talk about how this is made at home. All you do is put milk in a jar with a secure lid, shake it vigorously, then remove the cap and microwave it, and voila, you have milk foam for your drink! I had come across this article on how to make a latte at home by The Kitchn and was curious if it worked. Sure enough, worked like a charm!
It’s true — you don’t need a fancy foamer to make frothy milk at home! It’s actually really easy to make it in the microwave. All you do is shake nonfat or 2% milk in a jam jar until it’s foamy, take off the lid, and microwave it for a few seconds. You get spoonfuls of foam, plus warm milk to pour in your latte.
I like to buy premade iced coffee (cold brew or espresso work great), but you could brew coffee for this recipe too.
Next time you need a little pick-me-up, I’d highly recommend these homemade iced salted caramel lattes, they’re the perfect combination of salty and subtle sweetness!
