Earl Grey Tea Latte

Wow, only a few more days left until Christmas. Are you ready? I'm enjoying every moment of my last child-free Christmas but also so excited that next year there will be presents under the tree for my baby girl.

Since the start of this wintery season, I've been making myself an Earl Grey tea latte almost every morning. I originally saw Bobby Flay make one on his show Brunch at Bobby's and I've been hooked ever since. It's a great less caffeine alternative to coffee for any pregnant mommies out there or if you're looking for a change from your usual espresso latte.

How easy is this?...
1 cup water
1/2 cup skim milk (or whole if you're feeling indulgent)
1 tablespoon raw sugar
1 Earl Grey tea bag
Heat water and milk to just before boiling, stir in sugar, steep tea bag for approx 2 minutes and enjoy!

  6. If you want to make this a London Fog like Starbucks used to serve, add vanilla to it. You can make a syrup at home with vanilla, sugar, water, and stevia if you want to keep the sweet and leave behind some of the sugar. Stevia tends to work best when used with real sugar so it isn't bitter. Playing around with it helps a lot, but using that instead of just sugar is awesome with an earl grey latte.
