Mock Cinnamon Dolce Latte



Dissolve the espresso or coffee granules plus the protein powder in the hot water in the bottom of a quart jar.  (Quart jars are made to take the heat as long as the jars are not cold.)  Whisk well!  Then add in the almond milk (I like the vanilla unsweetened, but original should work too).  Add in the extracts, cream and ice to chill!


  • *Directions for making a Cinnamon/Caramel Latte Syrup
  • (serves 4)
  • 1 cup water --heated to boiling and removed from the heat
  • Whisk into hot mixture:
  • 1/2 cup Gentle  Sweet (or 1/4 cup Truvia)
  • 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon caramel flavoring (I use Watkins brand from Wal-Mart)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I like to use a high quality for the syrups)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon extract (McCormick makes a good one - extract not flavoring)
  • 1 pinch of salt ***super important don't leave it out***

Continue whisking until all is thoroughly mixed and store in a jar in the fridge.  Measure out 1/4 cup of this syrup for each drink in the recipe above.  This syrup replaces the sweetener and flavorings in the latte recipe and makes quick work of making these warm, refreshing coffee drink whenever you want one! :-)
