Any barista would gawk at this recipe as I heat the milk via the microwave, but it’s necessary to incorporate the Nutella into the milk. I should create a Nutella syrup (I did), but for the one-off cup at home, this works just fine. More than fine if you ask me. As always, pick your level of saltiness. I like my lattes strong and not too sweet. If you’re going for the opposite, add more milk and simple syrup.


  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1 scant tbsp. Nutella
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla simple syrup (see below)
  • a pinch kosher salt
  • 2 oz. freshly brewed espresso


  1. In a microwave-safe cup, heat milk, Nutella, simple syrup, and kosher salt for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring halfway in between.
  2. Remove from microwave and froth to your liking. Add to freshly brewed espresso. Stir and serve. Sprinkle with cocoa powder if you wish.


To make a simple syrup, heat 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan until just dissolved. Stir in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Cool completely and store in an airtight container at room temperature indefinitely.

It’s hard to get a decent froth off the Nutella milk. So after incorporating it into the espresso, separately I froth a tiny bit of half and half and pour it on top. Some days call for pretty. Other days call for lattes ASAP.
