    three-minute caramel latte

    Beth Garvin from San Angelo, Texas

    This saves me a lot of time and money! I no longer need to go to an expensive coffee shop for gourmet-quality coffee drinks! Try other ice cream toppings for flavor variation.

    Quick caramel Latte

    KATE LENKIEWICZ from GRAND RAPIDS, MI

    I substituted brewed coffee for the instant, since I always have it on hand. I make brewed coffee and I grind my own beans. I always use Columbia style beans and this worked perfectly with the recipe!!

    This recipe is good, but I think it would be better with a different flavor of topping. The next time I'm gonna try chocolate. My son liked it.

    Awesome for the Holidays

    Pat Harris from EDWARDSBURG, MI

    Mmmm. This delicious drink is one I plan to serve to family on Christmas morning! And of course, I'll give them the printed recipe. They all have to watch their sugar intake so I'll use reduced and sugar-free ingredients (as suggested in another VBB's review)! Thanks.

  •  Star(s)

    Tastes Great, BE CAREFUL

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    Be very careful when removing the lid from your blender after blending the hot coffee into foam. Heated ingredients cause pressure to build in the blender container, which may pop the lid and splash you. That said, the taste of this coffee is excellent.

  •  Star(s)

    Fantastic

    KELI COCHNAUER-Bass from ANTIOCH, CA

    I enjoyed this wonderful warm drink so much that I make it a few times a week. I wasnt sure how it would taste using Carnation Evap milk but it turned out to be absolutely wonderful. Thank You I look forward to more of your recipes especially with the upcoming holidays.

    Reminds me of a certain coffee chain

    The Bestt Yet

    Pat Pruitt from SPRINGDALE, AR

    I am a big fan of latte's. I was spending a small fortune until I found this recipe. Now for a very small amount of change, I can even invite the neighbors over and all of them enjoy it as much as I do. We have started a game of trying to see who can come up with the most flavors that are as good as the caramel. We have some great new tastes and every one has their own personal favorite. I think mine is coconut using Cream of coconut and 1 T. of chocolate syrup. Let your imagination run wild and see what your favorite is.

  •  Star(s)

    drink this up!

    Jill Wann from Paluxy, TX

    This is the best way to bring the coffee house in your kitchen without expensive machines or over-priced coffee chains. Its both creamy and satisfying.

    3-minute caramel latte

    Kristin Rasmussen from SAINT EDWARD, NE

    My husband is the only one that likes coffee and he likes his coffee flavored. This is a cheaper way to get a great tasting latte and he can have one cup at home and take the other to go.
