DIY Spooky Lattes

It's spooky season! That means it's time for chilly nights around a bonfire, ghost stories, and warm lattes. Have you ever thought about spookifying your lattes? Try out these recipes for a fun and cozy date night or to serve at your Halloween Party! 

Here's some basics before we get started...

 

whipped cream how to - latte basics

 

Whipped Cream
Basic whipped cream only takes three ingredients and a mixer (or a little elbow grease if you don't have one).
Ingredients:
1 cup of heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of sweetener
First, let's start by putting our mixing bowl in the freezer. If you don't have a standard mixer, then you'll want to put your whisk in the freezer as well. Once They've gotten good and cold for about 10 minutes, pour in 1 cup of heavy whipping cream. I like the heavy assortment over regular whipping cream; it produces fluffier whipped cream and better stiff peaks. Then add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and two tablespoons of sweetener. You can choose from a variety of sweeteners like honey, confectioners sugar, or maple syrup. Once combined, add to your standard mixer and mix on high until you see stiff peaks form. "Stiff peaks" are when you can put your spoon in the whipped cream, pull it out, turn it upside down, and the cream has kept its mountain like shape. If you just have a mixing bowl and whisk; put the whisk in the bowl and hold it between the palms of your hands and rub them together like you were trying to warm them up. This will make the whisk spin quickly; therefore whipping your cream! The last step is to try not to eat it all before you top your drink with it, haha.
You can create any flavor of whipped cream you'd like. Just substitute your favorite flavor for the 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla!
