If you’re looking for something refreshing to get your day started, or to give you a boost of afternoon energy, fill your cup with Bent Tree’s Guatemalan Medium Roast Coffee. Don’t stop there, though! Become your own barista and use this full-bodied, sweet citrus roast for my iced mint latte.

Bent Tree Medium Roast Coffee

Medium Roast Iced Mojito Mint Latte

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk (traditional or dairy-free is fine)
  • 10 Millcreek Gardens mojito mint leaves
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • Green food coloring
  • ¼ cup Bent Tree Guatemalan Medium Roast Blend, cold
  • 1 cup crushed ice

Instructions

  1. Combine the mint leaves and the vanilla in a mason jar and muddle with a flat spoon or fork. This will help the mint flavor to infuse with the vanilla extract. Add a drop or two of green food coloring for extra mint-like color, if desired. Shake to combine. This syrup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
  2. Brew the coffee however you like and allow to cool a bit before making the latte.
  3. Stir together the coffee and the prepared simple syrup in a glass. Top with ice and milk.
  4. Stir and enjoy!

Well hello there, I’m Lauren and I love food! Keeping meals simple, satisfying and accessible to all is the main purpose behind my cooking, but I always add a touch of creativity and uniqueness.I’m a family-taught cook and food is one of my greatest passion in life, but I suppose there is a little more to me than just food. I am a fur-mama to two wonderful rescue pups, Herbie and Nelly and our cat Grayson, who are all part of The Bite Size Pantry household. They love to be with me in the kitchen and they make the cleanup process a whole lot easier. Thanks to the wonderful internet world I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking. Sometimes it seems like a lot, but I just love food and I really love sharing that love with others who love it too.
