Basically latte is a type of coffee drink made with hot steamed milk....Some time it is made out of fruit also.........Latte is topped with the froth of steamed milk....
I love to drink fresh ice cold strawberry milkshake, That's my all time favorite... But my husband is not a big fan to cold drinks... So I invented this strawberry latte just for him...
The main rocking feature in latte is the milk froth on the top.......I use blender to create this froth.....I want the latte to be nice smooth and silky, for that heavenly texture I use strawberry syrup..... Sometime I also use fresh strawberry puree, but they slightly break the texture for the latte........
So Strawberry Latte is my contribution for this months Monthly Mingle hosted by Meeta of What's For Lunch, Honey?…. for the theme of this month --------"Liquid Dreams"
Whole Milk - 3 cups
Strawberry Syrup(store bought one - Nisqick) - 1/4 cup
Vanilla extract - 1/2 teaspoon
Few fresh strawberry for garnish
1. Boil the milk until it is reduced to 2 cups. (I did it in the microwave)
2. In a blender mix the hot milk, strawberry syrup and vanilla and whip it for 2 mins. (be careful when blending hot liquid) .
3. Pour it into a glass with the froth formed when it was whipped and garnish it with some fresh strawberry and serve it hot.
