Afternoon Latte Break

When 3pm rolls around, my eyes start to get heavy and I need a pick me up. Usually, I enjoy a mug of green tea but there are some days I need something a little more punch and a cup of coffee identical to the one that I drank in my pajamas when I woke up just won't cut it. Last week, DD tweeted this easy, at home coffee treat and I was immediately sold. I enjoyed one yesterday afternoon and again today during the mid afternoon slump. Using my French Press, almond milk and a mason jar, I can have my own giant latte in about five minutes.

Who wants to come over tomorrow afternoon?

Low-Fat Afternoon Latte
recipe from Martha Stewart

3/4 cup low-fat milk

Place milk in a 2-cup microwave safe glass jar with a lid. Cover and shake vigorously. Remove lid and transfer jar to microwave. Microwave on high for 45 seconds.

Pour espresso into a cup; pour milk over espresso. Spoon remaining foam on top and enjoy.
