In a saucepan or large glass measuring cup, combine flavouring ingredients (as called for). Gradually whisk in milk until blended. Heat in saucepan over medium heat or in microwave on Medium (50 %) power until steaming, 3 to 5 min.

Pour into two warmed latté bowls or large mugs and sprinkle or drizzle with suggested garnish.


Cooking Tip: Heat the milk just until steaming. If it boils, it may split and will not get frothy when whipped or blended.

To froth milk: Using a battery-powered latté whip or a whisk attachment on an immersion blender, whip hot milk mixture until frothy. Or, transfer to an upright blender or milk frother and blend or pump until frothy.

For the Adventurous:Chai Latté Steamer: Replace coffee in Café Latté with strong-brewed Chai tea.

Mocha Latté Steamer: add 1/2 cup (125 mL) strong-brewed coffee to Extra-Chocolate Latté
