Most mothers would agree: mornings can be tough. Whether you’re startled awake by a crying newborn or a toddler jumping into your bed—or you’re tip-toeing downstairs to enjoy one sip of coffee before the rest of the household wakes up—mornings aren’t always the easiest part of the day.
I’ve been a mom for roughly 15 months and have gone through many morning stages. Currently, I’m in the stage of setting my alarm extra early to get a solid hour to myself before my little one needs me. This hour is either spent working out in the living room or getting slightly ahead on my work at the computer. But I’m not perfect, there are also many mornings where I just hit snooze. But whatever happens, my morning must include a delicious beverage.
If you start dreaming of your morning cup of coffee while drifting off to sleep, you’re not alone. Knowing I’ll get a delicious caffeinated drink upon waking up makes my mornings just a tad bit easier to get through. Some of my more rushed mornings mean a boring black coffee, but if I can pull together just five extra minutes, I instead opt for a fun latte. I love a pumpkin spiced latte as much as the next gal (and that’s on the list!), but there are so many other recipes to try as well.
If your morning could use a fun pick-me-up, try a new-to-you latte recipe. And if your mornings are too hectic as-is, consider one of these tasty beverages as your afternoon treat.
Here are 13 delicious latte recipes to spice up your caffeine fix.
