Thin Mint Latte

Thin Mint Latte: Savory Sweet and Satisfying


Recently a coffee shop has advertised Girl Scout Cookie inspired coffee's, with Thin Mint being one. I knew that I could make a version at home and save some money.

The flavors of a Thin Mint cookies are chocolate and mint so all I needed to do was add those flavors to a latte, and it was super easy to do. A little cocoa powder for chocolate flavor, a little sugar for sweetness and mint extract for the mint flavor. This drink has a subtle mint flavor, but if you like a little more mint flavor you can add a bit more extract, just remember a little bit goes a long way.

Thin Mint Latte

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee, hot
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon mint extract

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan add the milk, cocoa powder, granulated sugar, and mint extract.
  2. Heat over medium-low heat while whisking to combine the ingredients. Continue to heat and whisk until the mixture is well combined and starts to simmer.
  3. Pour the coffee into a mug and pour the milk mixture over top. If you want foam on top, transfer the milk mixture to a blender and blend to create foam before pouring over the coffee.
Enjoy!!!
