How to make the Strawberry Mocha Latte
Step 1: Start by brewing your espresso or coffee. This will serve as the foundation for our decadent Strawberry Mocha Latte.
Step 2: If using fresh strawberries, prepare the strawberry infusion. In a blender, combine the sliced strawberries with a splash of milk and 2 tablespoons of stevia. Blend until you achieve a smooth, vibrant strawberry puree. This natural infusion will add a burst of fruity goodness to your latte.
If subbing with strawberry syrup or powder, you would bypass this step.
Step 3: Heat the milk in a saucepan, heat your milk of choice until it’s warm but not boiling.
Step 4: Mix in the chocolate syrup or cocoa powder to your brewed espresso or coffee. Stir well to ensure the chocolate is fully integrated, creating a luscious mocha base.
Step 5: Add in the warm milk and froth together.
Step 5: Pour the strawberry puree into your chocolatey coffee mixture. Watch as the vibrant hues dance with the rich mocha tones, creating a visually appealing and delicious treat.
Step 6: Froth it up Pour the frothed milk into your strawberry mocha mixture, allowing the froth to crown your creation. The frothy top adds a luxurious touch to your latte, enhancing both the texture and overall experience.
