Mocha Almond Stove Top Latte

Usually when I make lattes, I like to froth the milk with a steam wand attached to my espresso machine, but this recipe is a bit more accessible. The entire recipe is done on the stove, with the addition of espresso or strongly-brewed coffee. I hope you enjoy this sweet treat!

Serves 2.


1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tsp almond extract
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup vanilla soy milk
4 shots of espresso or 6 ounces of strongly-brewed dark roast coffee


Combine sugar and water in a small sauce pan, and bring to a boil, stirring often. Once syrup reaches a boil, add the almond extract, and let boil for another minute to burn off the alcohol.

Reduce heat to low and add cocoa powder and vanilla soymilk, stirring often for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Brew espresso or strong coffee.

Pour syrup / soymilk mixture into two separate glasses, and add 2 shots of espresso or 3 ounces of coffee to each glass.

Serve with whip cream and chocolate shavings, or a side of dark chocolate to make it dessert.
