Cookies and Cream Latte

Cookies and cream is one of those flavors that can turn around any day, no matter how bad the day was. And the same goes for coffee. Coffee makes everything better. Combining the two into a single drink only multiplies the feel-good effect.

The best thing is that it isn’t even hard to make. So, when you get home after a really tough day at work, you don’t have to put in a lot of effort to make this great drink.

Ingredients

This latte doesn’t contain so many ingredients, which contributes to the low-effort idea. Here is a list of the ingredients needed to make a cookies and cream latte.

Coffee

This one is kinda obvious I’d say, but whatever.

I recommend using espresso, Moka pot coffee, or coffee made with an AeroPress. The reason is that it is very concentrated and works best for a latte.

However, for this drink, you can actually really stick to your favorite coffee. I’d just recommend adding some milk if you usually drink black coffee, but we’ll get to the milk in a second.

Milk

Okay, so, now we get to the milk.

I always use whole milk. It steams the best and that is important to me.

However, there is no rule binding you to whole milk. Especially with this drink.

If you want, you don’t even have to steam it. You can even just heat it up in the microwave. The heating part is really important if you ask me. The reason that I say this is that the cream will cool down your drink and I prefer hot coffee. Using hot milk will help ensure that you don’t end up with too-cold coffee.

Milk Alternatives

If you prefer to use non-dairy milk like coconut milk, almond milk or oat milk that is cool too. If you want to steam it, just look out for the barista variant of the milk. They have been made to work great in coffee.

Whipped Cream

You can be lazy like me and buy the canned whipped cream or whip it yourself. It really doesn’t matter which you prefer. You just need it whipped.

Cookies

And now we get to my favorite ingredient. No jokes, I usually eat a few of the cookies before I even start to make my coffee. But whatever, so not the point. The point is you need cookies.

I like to use Oreo cookies, but if you like another kind or cannot find them, any cookies will do.

Steps

Now for the steps to make a delicious cookies and cream latte.

  1. Make a cup of coffee (I usually make a cafè latte, but any coffee will do)
  2. If you didn’t make a latte heat or froth some milk and add it to the coffee
  3. Next, add some whipped cream on top
  4. Finish it off with crushed cookies

Iced Cookies and Cream Latte

This latte is also great in an iced form. Here are the steps to make an iced cookies and cream latte:

  1. Make your coffee
  2. Let the coffee cool down (optional)
  3. Pour the coffee over coffee ice cubes
  4. Add some cold milk
  5. Top with whipped cream
  6. Finish off with cookies

A butterscotch latte is one of my favorite lattes. The butterscotch gives the drink a special edge that I cannot describe in any other way than amazing. You can also make a smoked version to make your drink even fancier.
