|Spiced ginger latte|
With this liquid consumption comes drinks that extend beyond my usual tea and coffee choices. I've been enjoying repeat cups of my spiced ginger latte as well as easy hot chocolates. Today's cinnamon vanilla latte will now be added to my rotation. It is easy, delicious and fit to rival flavoured coffee shop lattes - for a fraction of the cost and with less sugar.

I made this quite cinnamon-y, so you do need to like cinnamon if you are to give it a go. If you aren't a big fan of the spice then using a half teaspoon would give a milder option.

1 tsp (or to taste) instant coffee or decaffeinated coffee, or espresso shot, or equivalent coffee source

1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 - 2 tsp liquid sweetener, or to taste (and depending on whether your milk is sweetened)

Combine the milk, coffee, cinnamon, vanilla and sweetener in a large mug (if microwaving) or small saucepan (if using the stovetop). Heat gently until the milk is warm and then stir thoroughly. Add the hot water gradually, stirring as you do so.
