Okay, okay, okay. We all know I looooove a latte.
I love a latte even more when it mimics a coffee shop latte and when it has protein powder, because then it counts as breakfast AND it’s delicious.
This latte is no exception. It’s brimming with all of my favorite fall flavors and bursting with vanilla (OMGosh – I am so in love with vanilla this fall!) I can’t get enough!
