Raise your hand if you’re looking forward to “back to school” time!

My hands are lowered. To the floor. I’ve come to realize I am one of the rare people in this world who do not look forward to my kids going back to school. I love summer. I love the freedom to sleep in, go to the pool, or stay in jammies all day.

I love the “NO HOMEWORK” life that summer has to offer. I love spending time with my kids all day (well, most days, some days I look forward to bedtime more than others).

I hate the school supply shopping. I hate that I have to purchase those supplies weeks before summer ends. I hate that orientation and schedules come out WEEKS before school starts. It becomes this black cloud in my home. This hovering “doom” and gloom of school beginning.

However, oddly, my kids love school and they look forward to going back every year. Apparently I’m the only one that gets sad and nostalgic about the end of summer and the start of a new school year.

There is one highlight to school in session. Quiet mornings with a hot cup of coffee. Once I have sent my kiddos off to school, I love to sit outside with my favorite cup of joe. And this Brown Sugar Latte will be enjoyed day after day.

Last year you may remember I made an Egg Nog Latte. I taught you all how easy it is to use a mason jar to shake up your milk and make it frothy. However, I also got my hands on this aerolatte which does a fantastic job (even faster) to make your milk frothy!

Adding in the brown sugar when you heat the milk gives it a rich caramelized flavor too.

I’ve once again partnered up with the ADA Mideast to bring awareness to a continued problem. Milk is the number one source of calcium, Vitamin D and potassium in children’s diets, yet 46 million Americans served by Feeding America only receive 1 gallon of milk per year. When you think about giving to a food pantry…most people obviously only give canned goods and other non perishables. The Great American Milk Drive is working to put milk in the fridges of families this back to school season. And YOU can help too!

The American Dairy Association Mideast will donate $1 to the Great American Milk Drive for every “like,” comment or share each of the bloggers’ 10 recipes receive on its Facebook page between Aug. 10 and 26, which will be used to give gallons of milk to children and families across the country! So go head over there and do the easy part. Give our recipes some love, which in turn will help someone else in this country!

Comments & Reviews

  1. (Commented on their FB page!) What a great promotion/partnership with the American Dairy Association Mideast! I am so eager to make this latte! Sounds to die for (and easy to make)!

  2. This looks so delicious! I can’t wait to try your mason jar technique – I have never heard of it before and it just may solve my daily latte cravings that I try so hard to resist! 

  3. Now, see, if Jordan slept in and was okay with a lazy jammy day, maybe I’d be more on board with summer. As it is she’s up by 6 and bored by 6:30 so… YAY FOR SCHOOL!!! 🙂

  4. I have a little aerolatte too but have yet to try it out!  Now I have two excuses, this recipes and back to school!

  5. I will come down to visit and enjoy a cup of this with you on that first day back to school. I feel a tugging at my heart too. Just not quite ready to give up my time with my kids….wait….is that arguing I hear in the background? Ok, maybe it’s ALMOST time for them to go back!.

  6. Not having to worry about the grind of school…from the special event days to remember to bring this or that, the projects due, the homework, the rides here and there, etc. it’s so freeing during the summer! Totally agree! 

    This looks like the perfect fall drink. Brown sugar and coffee and caramel, cannot go wrong!

  7. Oh Aimee, I couldn’t agree more! I am the only one I ever know that wants summer to last forever. Our pool and summer camps help with that. HA. But, still. Summer is my absolute favorite. Thumbs down on back to school. Thumbs up on this latte, though. Delicious! Pinned.

  8. I’m conflicted about school starting. My daughter will be starting Kindergarten. While the quiet days by myself sound lovely. I’m going to miss my sidekick and our lazy mornings together. I’m sure a few of these lattes will make me feel better 🙂

  9. I’m with you!! I never look forward to my kids going back to school. Ugh! but I too also look forward to my quiet mornings after everyone leaves for school, cause there aint no quiet mornings happening around here in the summer!  This Latte looks like a winner YUM!

  10. My kids have been looking forward to all of the above for weeks.  The novelty of no routine gets old in our house I think.  As much as I adore my children, I have my hand raised for coffee like this one in a quiet house for hours!  Love this fun latte!  

  11. First kid going off to school this year! Back to school shopping was the worst. It was so hard to find all the specific stuff the teacher asked for. I need this Brown Sugar Latte to get me through. In fact, when done shopping at Target, I hit up the Starbucks at the front of the store. It was the only way. Next time, I (okay, maybe wife) can make me this!

  12. I LOVE my aerolatte, and I keep forgetting to break it out.    I don’t have any kids to send back to school, so I can’t raise my hand on that. BUT, I can raise my hand on loving brown sugar and coffee…so this is happening, like, NOW. Pinned!

  13. I’m in the mixed feelings camp here. On the one hand, I’m a teacher and I love my job. On the other, I love lazy mornings with my kids, and I don’t see them in the mornings during the school year. So it’s tough. But teaching is tons of fun!
    As is anything with brown sugar. I love using it this way!
