A Lotta Honey

August 09, 2010

(Or, a Latte Honey?)

If a honey-infused coffee drink is to your liking, try this honey latte idea - you're gonna love it!

1/4 cup strongly brewed Original Blend coffee 
1/4 cup honey 
3/4 cup cold water 
1 vanilla bean, 2 inches long (or 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract) 
1 quart low-fat milk 
8 water or coffee ice cubes

Chill four tall glasses and a pitcher in the refrigerator. 
Brew coffee, and then stir honey into the hot liquid. 
Add the cold water and vanilla and stir. 
Pour concentrate into the chilled pitcher and refrigerate, covered, until ready to use. 
To prepare, add two ice cubes to four chilled tumblers. 
Pour the milk into the coffee concentrate in the pitcher, stir, and pour into the glasses. Serve immediately.

NOTE: Honey is fine for older children, but not for babies! The reason? Honey can contain clostridium botulinum spores that can attack the nerve systems of infants and toddlers whose immune systems are not yet fully developed. Symptoms of infant botulism can be weakness, loss of head control, lethargy, or unusual/altered crying. Paralysis or death can occur.
