1 1/2 cups skim or low-fat milk
2/3 cup freshly brewed espresso
Ground cinnamon or sweetened cocoa powder (optional)
- In a small saucepan over low heat, cook the milk just until tiny bubbles begin to form around the edges of the saucepan, 10 to 15 minutes; do not let the milk come to a boil. If a skin forms on the surface of the milk, remove it with a spoon and discard.
- Divide the espresso between two 8-ounce cups. Add 1/3 cup of the hot milk to each cup.
- Using an electric mixer or wire whisk, beat the remaining hot milk until it is frothy. Spoon the milk froth into the coffee cups, dividing it equally. If desired, sprinkle a little cinnamon or sweetened cocoa powder over the foam before serving.
Chocolate Mint Latte: Prepare as directed above, adding a finely chopped 1/2-ounce chocolate-covered peppermint patty to each cup along with the espresso.
Caffe Latte è l’Orange: Prepare as directed above, adding 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liqueur to each cup along with the espresso.
