This latte recipe is for busy moms. It’s time to share this delicious coffee recipe with you.

No flavored javas, no mocha desserts, no food picture porn. Just what I drink every day.

Let me introduce you to my Coffee of Today. It fondly remembers the fancy froth that filled it in college.  It yearns for a day when it can be sipped and savored quietly.

But in all honestly, it wouldn’t change itself for the world.

However, if you love coffee (latte, flavored, or straight up black), be sure to also check out my recipe for a coffee smoothie with fresh cherries. It’s a real treat!

    Me too! I need a bit of sugar, but love simple coffee!

      I usually drink it just with milk in the morning. But if I’m so exhausted that I’m still sipping caffeine in the afternoon, then I totally head for the sugar bowl.

    Add a small teaspoon of sugar and I’m a happy camper!!! :)
