I came across saffron latte on Martha Stewart’s instagram account, and you know the recipe looked so exotic that I thought it might be complicated to make, but in actuality its so easy it’ll blow your mind!
About the recipe
Saffron cardamom latte is a coffee drink I made recently that turned out delicious 😋. All you do is warm milk with saffron threads, then make your espresso shot and combine the two. Easy right? In my version I went a step further and sweetened it with honey and a sprinkle of cardamom. Honey turns the latte into a dessert 😀😋! Cardamom adds an extra exotic fragrance. Really a delicious coffee drink that feels like a coffee shop special, give this latte a try!
Saffron Cardamom Latte
makes 2 big mugs
with inspiration from Martha Stewart Instagram
4 Espresso shots
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp saffron threads plus more for garnish
1/2 tsp cardamom powder plus more for garnish (I had whole cardamom pods which I crushed and saved the outer coating as garnish)
Honey – as sweet as you want 😊🍯
Add the saffron and cardamom to the milk and warm until hot. The milk will change to a golden color.
Make the espresso shots and pour them into two mugs. Add as much honey as you want, I used 1/2 tsp honey for a mildly sweet drink.
Then pour the saffron milk into two mugs and stir.
Garnish with saffron threads and cardamom. Saffron latte is ready!
