At-Home Latte Art with Holiday Coffee & Creamers at Target

Would it be weird if I told you that I only really started drinking coffee about five years ago? Granted, I certainly had moments in my 20s in college where I'd grab a coffee for a late-night cram session. But I didn't really start to appreciate the joy of a well-crafted brew until most recently. And now that we're in the middle of fall and winter is approaching, the long nights and low temps have me yearning for a warm cup of joe.
This month, I'm putting two of my favorite things together -- coffee and Target -- and sharing a fun holiday entertaining idea that your friends and family are sure to love this season. And if you want to get your hands on some great items at Target, be sure to download and use the Cartwheel app and save up to 20% on participating coffee and creamer products until 12/22.

Easy, At-Home Latte Art

Are you into latte art? Of course, you are! With the help of your favorite coffee and creamer brand from Target, you can easily design your own at-home latte art with a seasonal twist. One of my favorite coffee and creamer combos has got to be the Silk® Almond Caramel Creamer (which is Non-GMO, soy, gluten and dairy free), and the Folgers® Caramel Drizzle® Flavored K-Cup® pod (made with 100% Arabica beans). In case you couldn't tell, I love caramel flavored everything!

What You'll Need

  • Coffee
  • Creamer
  • Frother
  • Stencils
  • Cinnamon
Creating latte art might sound daunting, but it's actually a fairly easy process. Start with brewing an 8-ounce cup of rich and buttery Folgers® coffee with an easy-to-use K-Cup® pod. While your drink is brewing, pour some delicious Silk® creamer into another cup and use a frother to create a foam-like texture.
Pro-tip: I've found that the best way to create latte art at home is by using stencils and a coffee shaker filled with cinnamon. And the best way for the art to showcase itself is when it's placed on top of a foamy creamer.
Once your coffee is ready, add your foamy creamer as a top layer to your coffee, but do not stir. Place your stencil on the top of the coffee mug (without touching the creamer) and shake the cinnamon onto the stencil. I'm using holiday-inspired stencils, like a Christmas tree and a bow. Once you've adequately covered the stencil with cinnamon, gently remove the stencil so that you're left with your latte art design.
Not only is this a great way to start your morning, but it's also a fun way to get a little creative this holiday. And don't feel discouraged if your latte art isn't perfect. It usually takes a couple tries to get it right, and the act of creating the art is half the fun. So if you have friends and family over this December and you all wake up in the morning ready for a tasty cup of coffee and creamer, take a shot at creating at-home latte art that's guaranteed to have a delicious payoff.

  6. I am not much of a coffee drinker; maybe one or two coffee cups in a month but I really do love seeing coffee mugs with those beautiful art work on them and I never really knew how it was created. It's good to know that this art can be created at home too. I love your easy recipe and instructions for this coffee art DIY. Have a beautiful week.
