Ingredients (2 servings)

- 4 espresso shots or 2 cups of coffee - Don't be alarmed if you don't have an espresso maker, this recipe is bullet-proof to create the best oat milk lattes with a French press or on the stovetop.
- Optional: vanilla essence, maple syrup, or a cinnamon stick
A step-by-step guide
Using a coffee machine - start with brewing 4 or 2 (if you prefer your latte less strong) espresso shots using freshly ground Belvico beans
French press - brew 2 cups of Belvico coffee in your French press
Stove-top - brew 2 cups of Belvico coffee in your Moka pot
Froth the oat milk
Using a coffee machine - if you have a coffee machine with a steamer, you can use the metallic milk jug to steam the oat milk. When steaming, create a slight angle with your jug and aim for a temperature of 55C/130F. This is what baristas do!
Use a spoon to hold back the foam and pour the warm milk over the espresso shots to get that super creamy effect. Spoon out the foam on top.
Using a blender - preheat the milk on your stove-top until the temperature is about 55C/130F. Pour the milk into a blender. Start blending at a slow speed and increase until the milk becomes creamy. It usually doesn't take longer than 30 seconds. Apply the same pouring technique as described above.
Using a frother - preheat the milk on your stove-top until the temperature is about 55C/130F, froth until creamy. Apply the same pouring technique as described above.
Want to go all the way? Add some vanilla essence, maple syrup or a cinnamon stick for a different flavour.
You can also make your own oat milk . All you need for 2 servings are 1/4 cup of oats, 3/4 to 1 cup of water, a pinch of salt, 1/4 of a Medjool date, a blender and a strainer or a nut bag.
Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend on high speed for about 30 sec to 1 min. Taste-test before pouring the liquid through your strainer (or nut bag) into a glass jar. Your oat milk is ready and can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days in an airtight container.
