Vanilla Iced Latte Using Nespresso

I long for iced coffee in the summer the same way my boys long to hear the sound of the ice cream truck roaming through the neighborhood. It makes me giddy. However, the price I pay for an iced coffee from the coffee shop down the road makes me wince. Something that can be made so quickly should not cost $5, am I correct? Those dollars can add up quickly!

I was recently given the opportunity to test out a Nespresso machine with Gourmesso coffee and I fell in love instantly. This slick little machine makes some darn good coffee. Goodbye $5 Iced Lattes, hello affordable and frothy glass of deliciousness that I don't even have to leave home for!

I had no idea the array of flavors and varieties that could fall into a coffee mug! The capsules you see below are just a small sampling of the varieties available.

The capsules are inserted into the machine super easily and with a touch of a button, your lucky mug begins to fill!

One of my favorite things about the Nespresso machine is that there is built-in froth. Froth is one of the things I pay $5 for, as I don't always fancy whisking like a mad woman like I do when I make my Skinny Flavored Lattes.

This machine is my favorite contraption to have entered my kitchen in a long time. I've had it less than two weeks and already find it invaluable.

Have a great week filled with yummy, frothy iced coffees!
