In the spirit of the upcoming holidays, I decided to share a latte recipe. Ever had a Boo Berry Latte? Halloween is approaching. The bulk candy is on sale at the stores. The spooky decorations are on display. The scary movies are constantly being played on the television. I’ve also noticed that the Boo Berry cereal is out. (Along with Franken Berry and Count Chocula). These cereals are childhood favorites of mine. Coffee now dominates my adult palate. Combining the two would be magnificent. Therefore, it brought me great joy when I found a way to mix the two together. Let me share with you this recipe for a Boo Berry Latte.
The Yield will be for a 16oz cup.
- Boo Berry Cereal
- Coffee beans for Espresso
- 11 oz of Milk
- Whipped cream
- Blue Berry Syrup
- Toasted Marshmallow Syrup
I usually use Torani Syrup’s for my lattes. It is recommended to grind your own coffee beans for the espresso. Fresh ground beans will make for a better tasting espresso. If you don’t want to grind your own beans then I would recommend getting pre-ground coffee beans. The focus on this latte is sweetness so get beans that are not too strong. I suggest a medium-dark roast. LaVazza Coffee is a good option if you want something store bought. You want to be able to taste the sweetness of this drink and not have it overpowered by the coffee. Use almond milk if you want to add some additional natural flavor.
- Place warm water at the bottom of the 16oz cup and set it aside.
- Pull your espresso shots. You are going to want to pull for two shots.
- Steam your milk. Be sure that the temperature of the milk does not exceed 150-155 degrees F or else you will scorch it.
- Dump the warm water from the 16oz cup that you set aside.
Directions: In your 16oz cup
- Use 3 pumps of Blue Berry Syrup
- Use 4 pumps of Toasted Marshmallow Syrup
- Pour in 2 shots of espresso
- You can stir or swirl the ingredients to fuse them together.
- Pour in 11oz of steamed milk. Don’t worry about making it look presentable. You are going to put more items on top.
- Gently place whipped cream on top of the foam. The amount of whipped cream will be at your discretion.
- Garnish with Boo Berry cereal.
I hope you enjoy this drink. You can add or subtract the amount of syrup you want in order to satisfy your personal preference. The same goes for the milk or the type of coffee that you use. It’s all about preference. You should know that the closer you get to the bottom of the drink, the more it taste like Boo Berry cereal. Have fun!
