A Quick Latte At Home for under $1

A good cup of coffee does NOT have to be hard to come by.  It also does not have to cost you your firstborn child!  While I have paid a pretty penny for a good cup of coffee, I am always looking for ways to save money and still take my coffee experience to that “ahhhhhh this is so goooood!” level.  In the mornings when I drag myself to the kitchen knowing I have to be UP AND AT ‘EM before the kids get up, I am so thankful for my Keurig because it is easy and quick to use before my brain is fully functioning.  Now, with the help of a sweet little product from International Delight, I can made a quick {delicious} latte at home!

I have seen the ads for the International Delight One Touch Latte, and seen it on the grocery shelves.  I was a bit skeptical only because I have tried making real lattes at home, and without the hot milk and becoming a whiz with the frother, I just haven’t been able to make it happen.  Until yesterday!

I was shopping at Meijer and happened to have an mPerks coupon for $1 off.  The International Delight One Touch Latte was on sale, so I grabbed the caramel flavor and thought I would give it a whirl!

Once I got home and put groceries away (most of them), I started my Keurig.  I love the sound my Keurig makes when it’s warming up.  It reminds me of the sound of the Tardis and it gets me all excited {Dr Who Anyone?}!  So I grabbed the can and read the instructions.  I wanted to do this the was supposed to be done – and the instructions looked easy enough.

My hot cup of coffee was waiting with anticipation for that latte effect.  (Did i just humanize a cup of coffee?  oh man, I might need an intervention).  The sound that the latte cream makes coming out sorta does sound like an espresso machine frother – I was getting more hopeful by the minute.  I added a few extra seconds worth of latte.  I looked into the cup and it LOOKED like a latte from a coffee shop.  I was impressed!

I sipped and could instantly taste the full flavor of the caramel and cream with the coffee.  Yum!  I continued to drink it and noticed that the caramel flavor was pronounced, but I also prefer a tad more sweetness to my cup.  The creamy level was perfect and amazing, and I drank the cup down quite quickly.

As I made my cup this morning, I decided to add a little of my sweet creamer (less than I normally would use, though) before adding the Latte product.  I also held the nozzle higher in the cup – and what I ended up with was a perfect latte with a little whip on top.  (I know, I know – lattes aren’t supposed to have whip, but this one did!)

All in all, I love the added flavor and frothy-whippy effect of this product and would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a latte.  With Vanilla, Caramel, and Mocha flavors – I will definitely be enjoying homemade lattes more often without having to spend a bunch of cash!

My cost was less than $1!

Kcup less than $.50 + OTLatte @ $.15 per serving for me.  The can says 40 servings per can, and I’m guessing I will probably use at least 20 ($2.99 / 20 servings = $.15 per serving)!!!
