Wildflower Honey Latte

Summer may be ending, but that doesn’t mean the flavors of the season need to leave us. You can still cling onto warm evenings catching glimpses of butterflies dancing in the trees. All it takes is a bit of imagination and the sweet taste of wildflower honey.

A local cafe crafted an array of seasonal summertime drinks, one of which was a wildflower honey latte. It quickly became my go-to summer drink, but now that the leaves are changing color, they have switched up their drink menu. My heart sank the day I could no longer order this latte, so I set out to recreate it at home.

It’s a simple drink to make, but with the addition of wildflower honey the latte feels like an indulgence. Therefore, it’s the perfect way to hang onto summer even when the temps are falling outside.

Chai Tea Latte

Almond Milk Chai Tea Latte

On days when Ian and I are itching to get out of the house, but have nowhere to go, we usually end up in a quaint coffee shop sipping on a latte plotting about our next adventure. Recently, my drink of choice has been a chai tea latte. Yes, I know. I’m super late to the party on this one! I’ve heard people raving about chai tea lattes over the years, and now I finally understand the hype.

My love for these lattes have become so strong I’ve discovered how to make them at home! My first attempt involved multiple bags of chai tea and hot almond milk…sadly it was a fail! Since then I have discovered the Tazo Chai Tea Concentrate and it has made all the difference!

Seriously, the process is so simple I feel silly writing about it! All you need to do is mix equal parts concentrate with almond milk and heat on the stove or microwave. To add that foamy texture you get at a coffee shop, I whip my warm drink in a blender (I don’t own a fancy frother!) for a few seconds before I pour it into my cup. It’s a delicious way to start your day!
