I LOVE eggnog. When I tried this homemade Starbucks eggnog latte I almost jumped up and down. You can use homemade eggnog with this recipe. What better way to celebrate Christmas than by making homemade Starbucks eggnog latte?
4 ounces boiling water
1 to 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
¼ cup milk (use skim or 2%)
½ cup eggnog
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ tablespoon light brown sugar
⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg, or to taste, plus more for dusting
whipped cream, optional
Stir the espresso powder into the hot water and set aside.
In a glass measuring cup combine milk, eggnog, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; whisk/stir until thoroughly combined.
Place in Microwave and cook for 1 minute and 30 seconds, or until the milk starts to froth up.
Remove from Microwave and stir/whisk again.
Place in Microwave for an additional 30 seconds, or until the milk begins to froth up again.
Remove and, while stirring the eggnog-mixture, slowly pour the coffee into the eggnog-.mixture.
