Amoretti Drink Recipe: Macadamia Banana Latte
If you’re starting to feel burnt out on sugar and spice and everything nice, then perhaps it’s time to try a drink recipe that isn’t so… festive. We’ve created this Amoretti drink recipe from two of our unique drink syrups with you in mind. By combining the creamy, smooth nuttiness of the macadamia nut with the versatile flavor of banana, we’ve created a latte that you can’t help but enjoy.
Go ahead, and say ‘sayonara’ as you head out to more tropical lands this winter with the Amoretti Macadamia Banana Latte.
- 12 oz steamed milk
- 1 shot espresso
- 1 ¼ pump Amoretti Premium Macadamia Syrup
- 1 ¼ pump Amoretti Premium Banana Syrup
- Whipped cream (optional)
As you steam your milk, pull your espresso shot. Add the two unique drink syrups to the mug, and pour the milk, holding back the foam (if you want to top with whipped cream). Add your whipped cream, or add a dollop of foam instead. This drink is nice with some grated nutmeg on top. But, if that’s one spice too many for your palate, then it’s fine to go without!
We think that these two unique drink syrups pair exceptionally well together in this espresso drink recipe. Fruit and nuts tend to have a good relationship together. But, that relationship blossoms exceptionally well with a light and acidic shot of espresso with steamed milk!
If you don’t have an espresso maker and/or milk frother, don’t feel left out of this recipe. You can always use 8 oz coffee and 4 oz steamed milk (on the stove) to achieve a similar effect. In fact, you might even find that this variation of the recipe is even smoother on the stomach and more palatable for non-coffee drinkers.
One last note on this drink recipe… we think it is excellent as an iced coffee, too. If you like cold pressed coffee or plain iced coffee, try adjusting this recipe to suit your taste! We always recommend 1 ½ pumps of our syrups for 8 oz of hot beverage, and 1 ¾ pumps of our syrups for 8 oz of cold beverage. So, if you do decide to do this recipe iced instead of hot, be sure to slightly increase the amount of syrup you use in order to get the best, most well-rounded flavor.
