Tips For The Perfect Iced Nespresso Mint Lattes:
- Espresso - Nespresso is my go-to! If you have not tried this brand yet you definitely should treat yourself. It is phenomenal! You'll never look at coffee the same way again. ;) Just a heads up though, regular coffee works here as well.
- Mint - You will only want to use fresh mint in this recipe. (Tip: Use either a large handful of mint from your garden, or purchase a 5 oz package from the store). Also, I like to rip a lot of the leaves in half, because it releases those essential oils much faster.
- Honey - Beeyond The Hive honey is a great option. It's all natural and raw from the hive. I have linked the one I use below.
- Simple Syrup - You can store this in the refrigerator for up to 1-2 weeks. This will make multiple drinks. And once made, prep time will be under five minutes.
- Milk - My favorite dairy-free alternative is The Original Oatly Oat Milk. It is super creamy and delicious. And in my opinion, the oat flavor is very subtle - I can't tell. I do not know how they do it, but the flavors are perfectly balanced.
- Frothing - Frothed milk is a necessity to all lattes. As I am a self-proclaimed Nespresso nut, I use their Aeroccino, which can froth both hot and cold milk. But, if you don't have one, there are several other methods such as an immersion blender, a frothing wand, a pump frother, hand whisk or even hand mixer...and I would pretty much put them in that order.
