How to Make a Starbucks Iced Latte at Home

If there is one thing you need to know about me is that I love coffee. Love isn't even a strong enough word I'm obsessed. Today I am going to show you how to make a Starbucks Iced Latte at home with the Ninja Coffee Bar. Now neither Starbucks nor Ninja is paying me for this. This is just how much I like both these brands. Isn't it funny in life when you are young and starting out in your careers or still in college you can spend $5 on a latte and not even think about it. But then when you're actually an adult with a real career and salary you wince at the thought of spending that much money on coffee.... I blame Dave Ramsey or maybe my Dad for making me aware of how much I used to spend on coffee.

Today I am sharing my favorite cold brew iced coffee recipe that can be made in a mason jar. Some may say that I am an iced coffee or maybe just coffee (in general) addict.

Homemade Mason Jar Lattes

Who doesn't love their $5 lattes, show of hands? Who likes paying $5 for them? That's what I thought. In an effort to save some money and not go to Starbucks every weekend I started a quest to make myself a quality coffee on the weekend. Someone at work had told me that she places milk in a cup and microwaves it for 30 seconds creating her version of steamed milk without a frother. So this past weekend my sister and I were chatting that to get foam you need air. So why not shake it in a mason jar before microwaving it.
