Goat Milk Latte
This post is a long time coming because I’ve gotten so many inquiries on my Instagram stories about my morning goat milk latte. So here’s the back story. This winter Taylor and I joined a “herd share” which is basically the dairy equivalent of a CSA. We found a lovely local farm (Fair Food Farm) and every other week for the past 10 weeks we’ve received raw organic goat milk, yogurt and cheese. To be honest, I was the most worried about getting through the goat milk. I knew the cheese and yogurt would be easy but I’m just not a milk drinker these days so I wasn’t quite sure how we’d tackle the milk jars. Luckily, my acupuncturist (hi Arista!) gave me the idea to make goat milk lattes. And because I drink coffee every morning (usually with a little cream) I thought, why the heck not? And the result? A rich and creamy beverage with a hint of sweetness and a kiss of tang. It blends beautifully with the coffee and now I can’t get enough!
I’m so darn happy that I discovered the beauty of this special latte. Not only has it helped us get through our milk supply every week but I actually look forward to these lattes while I’m still lying in bed at night. They are literally what get me out of bed in the morning.
The great news is that you don’t have to be a part of a herd share to enjoy these (although I highly recommend it!) Find some good quality goat milk at your farmers market or grocery store and enjoy a cozy morning treat.
