What You'll Need
With just a few ingredients you can make a cup of thin mint coffee! Don't forget the cookie crumbles on the rim and chocolate drizzles!
- Coffee - Make sure you brew the coffee extra strong or make a double shot of espresso.
- Milk - Any variety of milk will work. I just like to use fat free to save on a few calories, plus it froths really well.
- Chocolate Syrup - A few spoonfuls of zero sugar Hershey's chocolate syrup gives it a sweet chocolate flavor without added sugars.
- Mint Extract - Do not overdo this extract because it can go from slight mint flavor to toothpaste in a hurry. Be careful when measuring it out!
- Toppings - A swirl of cool whip, chocolate syrup, and cookie crumbles makes this coffee drink extra special.
How to make a Mint Latte
This mint latte recipe is a delicious and slightly healthier alternative than coffee shop drinks. Plus, it's so easy to make at home in just a few simple steps.
Brew a cup of strong coffee and pour it into a measuring cup.
Heat the milk, syrup, and extract on the stove on low to medium heat until it is hot. Do not let it boil!
Use an Aerolatte milk frother to froth the hot milk until you get a nice layer of foam on top. You can also pulse the milk in a blender to make it frothy.
Dip the top of the glass in honey, then dip the rim in crushed girl scout cookies.
You can also dip the rim in green sugar for a fun St. Patrick's day twist.
An angled measuring cups works best for pouring the coffee and frothed milk into the mug without spilling it on the decorated rim.
As you are pouring the frothed milk, use the back of a spoon to keep all the foam from going into the cup too fast. If your mug is large, then you can pour everything in right away.
A swirl of whipped topping and more chocolate gives it a bigger foam.
