Sometimes it’s just a latte type of morning. Hot, dark espresso mixed with frothy, slightly sweet (non-dairy) milk creates a combination that really gets my mind-set for the day. Luckily, I received an at-home espresso machine from the bearded one for Christmas a couple of years ago, so I’m able to obtain one without overpaying. I find the whole process of making one very methodical but at the same time, beautiful and therapeutic.
Because of that, I made a little instagram video of my making some for my friend and I yesterday morning. What’s exciting about that is that he’s working on my new logo and site! I can’t wait until we work out some kinks and finally get it live, which may happen within the next couple of months.
I’ve been really into breakfast foods lately, and it has been a long time since I’ve made and chia pudding, and an even longer time since I’ve combined my love of coffee and food into one. Now is the time! I’ve taken what really makes a latte special and added some nutritional value to it, and possibly made it prettier; although I’m a total sucker for latte art and I just can’t do it.
When Carie, one of my IG followers, suggested that I do a post on making lattes it really affirmed my want for this recipe. I guess you can thank her for this, then? As far as the espresso machine goes, I absolutely love it and have definitely gotten my money’s worth from it. That’s also after researching different ones for WEEKS. Phew.
Come alive with this caffeinated chia pudding! I imagine that it would be great for a Monday morning.
