CAFE AU LAIT VS LATTE

‘Cafe au lait’ is the French way to say ‘coffee with milk’. A cafe au lait is made with strong brewed coffee and steamed milk, and most often served with equal parts coffee to milk (there is no hard and fast rule on this ratio though).

A latte on the other hand is made with espresso, steamed milk, and topped with foamed milk. A latte will generally contain 1-2 ounces of espresso and 8+ ounces of milk.

EXPERT TIPS

Want to reduce the number of dishes you use? Warm and froth the milk mixture in the mug you plan to use instead. If you don’t care too much about the amount of frothy milk on top of your cafe au lait, warm and froth the milk mixture in the mug you plan to use and top with coffee instead. Add the dashes of cinnamon on top and enjoy!

What is the best milk to use for a cafe au lait? You can use any type of milk you like to make your maple cinnamon coffee with collagen.

  • Dairy milk: 2% or whole milk are both great options. Note: the higher the fat content is in your milk, the better it will froth.
  • Non-dairy milk: oat milk or almond milk are both good alternatives to dairy milk. If you have another non-dairy milk preference, go for it!

What collagen powder should I use for this coffee with collagen? I like and use Vital Proteins unflavored collagen peptides powder, but you can use whatever unflavored collagen powder brand you like in this coffee recipe!

No collagen? No problem! If you do not have or do not supplement your diet with collagen, just skip this step. Your coffee will be wonderful without it too.

Use pure maple syrup! If you are going to put maple syrup in coffee, make sure you’re using the good stuff! I do not recommend using pancake syrup in your coffee.
