There’s a lot to love about this latte. The spices add so much flavor, while the light milk helps keep it slim. This same sip at a coffee shop can run you more than four times the calories and seven times the amount of sugar. And need I even talk about the cash savings? Brew it at home when you need a scrumptious and energy-boosting beverage.
