Red Velvet Latte
February is officially (well at least in my house) red velvet month. Oh, how I love to indulge in velvety chocolate sweets.
Last year I showed you how to make an AMAZING gluten free red velvet cupcake, this year I have several more red velvet treats to share with you so you can indulge your red velvet fantasies right along with me 😉
Today I’m departing from traditional cakes and cookies and I’m kicking February off with this luscious Red Velvet Latte. Yes, you heard me right, red velvet in coffee form. Please, hold your applause until the end.
This sinful coffee drink is the perfect indulgent treat that can also double as an afternoon pick me up. It’s a delightful twist on a classic red velvet hot chocolate and it’s a crowd pleaser for sure!
This latte is super addictive it’s hard to stop at just one cup! Not overly sweet, but perfectly rich at the same time. You’ll see what I mean when you try it!
When your kids, your boss or just life is getting you down, just sit in a quiet room and sip yourself into a glorious red velvet coma. Serenity has never tasted so good!
