Making a latte without an espresso machine is surprisingly easy and requires only a few ingredients. To make a delicious latte without an espresso machine, you will need:
– instant espresso powder
– milk of your choice
– sugar (optional)
– a saucepan
– a whisk or a milk frother
First, measure two tablespoons of the instant espresso powder into a saucepan and add one cup of water. Whisk the espresso powder and water together until the powder is completely dissolved. Place the saucepan on medium-high heat and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Once the mixture has come to a boil, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
Next, pour the espresso mixture into a mug and add milk of your choice. If desired, you can add some sugar to sweeten the latte. Using a whisk or a milk frother, froth the milk for about 30 seconds until it is light and fluffy.
Finally, pour the frothed milk into the mug with the espresso mixture and stir it all together. You can top the latte with some cinnamon or chocolate shavings for a special touch.
And that’s it – you’ve just made a delicious latte without an espresso machine! Enjoy!
