Fall is the best time to be here in the desert and I’m soaking up every last minute of it.  Mornings are my favorite part of the day as they are quiet, cool, full of potential and the clouds are hanging low on the mountains.  When my feet hit the floor, I make a beeline for caffeine.  Nothing happens before I get my morning pep talk from my coffee machine. In the summer, I keep it cool and simple, usually an iced coffee or tea, but come fall, I’m all latte!  Celebrate fall with one of my favorite morning wake-ups – a Caramel Apple Latte.

We visited the apple orchard a record amount of times this season.  The summer heat held on too long for my liking, so I headed up the mountain every chance I got.  Our favorite local orchard specializes in heirloom apples, which are apples that have been all but forgotten until recently.  Over September and November, different varieties come into season, my favorites coming in the late harvest.  Today, though, I’m using a classic apple you can find just about anywhere – the tart, crisp Granny Smith.

Apple picking season has just come to a close, but that won’t stop my apple recipes! I’m not quite ready for my apple cider to run out, my apple pies to stop baking, and I’m definitely not ready to let go of my Caramel Apple Lattes.

I like to keep my daily coffee simple and quick to make.  As a mom, business owner and generally restless person, I don’t have extra time for extra fuss.  Near the beginning of this year, I was introduced to International Delight® One-Touch Latte™ which makes creating lattes at home a breeze.  These easy lattes are especially helpful while entertaining during the hectic holiday season. Keep one or two in the fridge for house guests to use in the mornings!

One Touch Latte’™ can help you create a latte in 3 easy steps. Just fill cup 2/3 with coffee to leave room for froth. (This recipe is also amazing with black tea) Add a quick pour of green apple syrup.

Next comes the fun part.  Shake the One Touch Latte™ can. Press and hold the can above coffee to cream to desired sweetness and enjoy! Press it, press it real good!  About 5-7 seconds is perfect.

The result is a frothy, creamy, rich latte made right in the comfort of your own home.  That’s hard to beat!

I have the say, my favorite International Delight® One Touch Latte flavor is caramel, but a close second is vanilla (with pumpkin syrup).  I prefer these two for their versatility but closer to the Christmas season, International Delight® One Touch Latte Mocha will be the one I reach for most.  Try the mocha flavor with a mint syrup, so good!
