This vanilla infused espresso drink is my adaptation of a classic Italian breakfast. In Italy, breakfast usually consists of an espresso and milk along with a croissant or some type of pastry, perhaps even some left over Panettone di Casa or Italian S Cookies .
This drink has protein and a third of the days calcium along with a vitamin packed punch...not sure if the punch comes to me from the vitamins or the espresso itself : ) Im getting even more calcium since I typically have 2 of these!
Espresso is one of my essential food groups! I have had a long love affair with espresso. In fact, my Mother used to put espresso and milk in my bottle when I was a baby! She said it helped me sleep?!? Its true! Can you imagine? No wonder I'm high strung! I guess no one told her the caffeine would make her baby bounce off the nursery room walls.
- 1/4 cup espresso
- 1/3 cup vanilla soy milk
- 1/2 cup skim milk
Combine the 3 ingredients and serve!
