Ingredients

Syrup Ingredients:

  • 1 cup VERY hot water
  • 1/2 cup Gentle Sweet Sweetener or 1/4 cup Pyure or Truvia still good but not quite as sugary tasting
  • 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum serves as a binder and this syrup will not separate at all
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract I use a high quality organic to insure a clean flavor
  • 1/4 teaspoon caramel flavoring I use Watkins and get it at Wal-mart - The key is keeping the amount of caramel flavoring very small here.

Latte Ingredients:

  • 1/4- 1/3 cup caramel latte syrup to taste
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened original almond milk I love blue diamond
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon collagen protein optional for snack purposes to meet protein requirements
  • 1/4 cup half and half or to lower carbs you can use 2 tablespoons or more heavy cream
  • 1 cup cold brewed coffee or strong brewed high quality cold coffee
