This is a surprisingly low-calorie treat, and it will give you the same delicious flavors that you could get from a Cinnamon Dolce Latte at Starbucks! If they still served them. This is an easy homemade version to make, and it won’t even add too many additional calories – definitely a guiltless treat.
- 1 shot Espresso
- Dusting – 1/8 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1 cup Milk (for steaming)
- Splenda or sugar to taste
- 1 shot Smuckers Butterscotch (or Caramel) Sundae Syrup
- Whipped Cream (optional)
Start out by freshly brewing the shot of espresso, and then mix it with the cinnamon, and stir well. Add the sugar-free caramel syrup, and then mix in any additional sweetener to your taste. Steam your milk until it is 160°, and pour it in with the espresso to create your professional latte treat!
Variation: Leave out the ground cinnamon, but instead put a large cinnamon stick, some cloves and green cardamom pods in the milk. Leave as it comes to a boil, set aside and let it infuse for a couple minutes. Then strain out the seasonings and pour into the coffee.
Starbucks does still offer the Iced Cinnamon Dolce Latte
