Adults need milk too

April 22nd, 2009

gotmilkKids are not the only ones who need to drink milk. You’re probably getting your calcium without knowing it from the lattes you drink each day.

Drinking lattes is a ritual millions of Americans look forward to every morning. But at about $3 dollars for a small cup, it’s a luxury that could cost nearly $1100 a year! In these tough economic times, many have been forced to bypass this habit, not only reducing their latte consumption, but their calcium intake as well.

An average 12 oz. cup of latte, for example, can have as much as 30 percent of the daily recommended calcium intake. That’s why GOT MILK? has partnered with award-winning baristas from California to give latte enthusiasts some fun, easy and economical ways to enjoy lattes at home for as little as 35 cents a cup, while still getting the nutrition milk brings to this beloved drink.

“It’s all about being creative,” says Heather Perry, named United States Barista Champion in 2007 and 2003. “Making the perfect latte is not rocket science. You just need basic ingredients like coffee, tea or chocolate and of course, the ingredient that binds everything together, milk.”

Perry’s Crème Brûlée latte is a mixture of espresso or coffee, vanilla syrup, caramel and steamed milk – a sweet drink that still provides the calcium people need daily.

I have the recipes from GOT MILK? For the recipe for Crème Brûlée latte, and other delicious lattes such as Vanilla Chai Latte and Spiced Ice Tea Latte.
