I love a good coffee. But, even more than coffee, I love a good latte. With the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to do our part and stay home, wash our hands, hand sanitize, and avoid unnecessary trips to town. A daily coffee run is (arguably) unnecessary, but if you’re like me you may not want black coffee at home every day.

Maybe you don’t have a home espresso machine, but you still want your daily latte. I’m going to share just how to make a super simple, vegan version at home with basic ingredients and supplies 🙂

Latte means “milk” in Italian – a latte is simply a cup of warm milk over espresso, topped with foam. Without a milk frother, we won’t get the foamy top at home. Without an espresso machine (or an AeroPress), we won’t get proper espresso either. However, this easy vegan latte is still delicious and the perfect drink for a rainy quarantine day!

How to Make an Easy Vegan Latte at Home

Non-dairy milk (I highly recommend Silk Vanilla Soymilk)
Instant Coffee (you can also brew extra-strong regular coffee, but it’s extra steps)

– Heat milk on the stove, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. If a slimy film forms on the top of the milk, it got too hot!
– Add instant coffee to a mug (I enjoy a little less than 2 TBSP/16oz, but it’s totally up to you how much you add! Remember to add more than the amount suggested to make *coffee* because we want it extra strong to mimic espresso).
– Pour hot milk over the instant coffee and stir until it dissolves.
– Enjoy!!
