easy to make sugar-free caramel latte

For this sugar-free Caramel Latte, I used a traditional Italian Moka pot, espresso maker.

I have a friend who was born in Italy and his parents use traditional methods to make espresso. I have tested both, machine-made and stovetop-made, and by fat, I prefer the taste and smoothness of the stovetop Moka pot method.

There are other methods of making espresso as well, such as using a french press, Aeropress and as my friend says the local drive-thru.

The point is you don’t need a fancy machine to make an excellent cup of espresso.

Steps to make this simple sugar-free Caramel Latte

Using a Moka Maker

  1. Fill the water reservoir of the Moka Pot with water to the fill line
  2. Fill the coffee filter with ground espresso coffee. (If you are using a grinder see notes below on grinding coffee beans), and place them onto the water reservoir.
  3. Screw on the top coffee reservoir onto the water reservoir.
  4. On the stovetop, place your pot over high heat. If using an induction stove, be sure to get the correct pot for induction
  5. As the water begins to boil you will hear the boiling sounds.
  6. Do not leave your pet unattended. Once the pot is hot, it takes only a couple of minutes to complete the espresso-making process and you don’t want an empty pot on the burner.
  7. You will hear the water coming up through the stem and onto the grounds. when the sounds die down, turn off the heat.

If using another method to make the espresso start here

  1. In your large latte mug add 2/3 cup of skim milk
  2. Heat the milk in the microwave for approximately 40 seconds.
  3. Add 1 packet of sweetener to your milk.
  4. Using a handheld frother, froth the milk.
  5. Once it is frothed, add the espresso, pouring slowly into the milk.
  6. Add 1 tablespoon of Skinny Caramel cream butter syrup.
  7. Stir the mixture under the foam.
  8. Sprinkle the frothed milk with ground cinnamon (if desired)
  9. Enjoy your sugar-free Caramel Latte

NOTE

You can also pour the espresso into the cup and then add your milk and caramel syrup, followed by spooning on the milk foam, but I have found that as long as your pour the espresso slowly the frothed milk will stay foamy.

Grinding Whole beans for espresso

When grinding coffee beans for espresso it is important to get the right grind.

A good cup of Espresso requires finely ground beans.

If the beans are ground too fine, you run the risk of plugging the holes in the filter basket. and too coarse will result in a less smooth flavour as well as some bitterness.

The grind needs to be fine enough for the steam pressure to extract the flavour from the grounds. I use a burr grinder and have found that I get the best results from it. I have tried blade grinders but in comparison, the Burr grinder is best.

Jordan’s Skinny Syrup

I love the line of Jordan’s Skinny Syrups! They taste so good, you can not tell that they have no sugar or calories, A win-win for a diabetic. The Caramel flavour that we used in the sugar-free Caramel Latte can be added to many drinks, like cappuccinos. mochas. or used in deserts or to drizzle on ice cream. the best part is it’s sugar-free and carb-free.

Check them out. There are lots of flavours and great uses for them year-round.
