New Year, New Food! The 5 AM Latté

It’s been an overdrive-type week chez Reilly, so this week’s new food is actually a beverage. It’s been appropriately named the “So What That It’s 5 AM Latté”… or for extra taxing weeks when that’s too many words, simply “The 5 AM Latté.” Use vanilla almond milk and save precious time by avoiding the lengthy sugar-adding step. If you have an espresso machine, get the stepladder, dust it off, and fire it up. If not, you can brew double-strength coffee and this’ll be just as fierce.

So What That It’s 5 AM Latté
Serves 1

8 oz vanilla almond milk (such as Almond Breeze or Silk Pure Almond)
Dash of cinnamon
2 shots of espresso, or 2 oz double-strength coffee

Microwave or heat milk + cinnamon in a saucepan until steamy hot. Pour into favorite mug. Brew coffee or espresso and pour immediately into mug ‘o milk. Sip fast or slow. Let the day begin!

What the critics said:
Bitchin’ Dietitian: “The sun’s not up? What’s it waiting for?”
Bitchin’ Husband: “Oh Thank God.”
Bitchin’ Kids: “Can we have one of those, but in a margarita glass?” (What are we teaching these kids?!)

Definitely a winner. How do you start your early days?
