Boost Your Calcium Consumption - Have a Latte!
Date:3/23/2009

Award-Winning Baristas Share Tips on How to Make Lattes for as Little as 35 Cents

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Drinking lattes is a ritual millions of Americans look forward to every morning. But at about three dollars for a small cup, it's a luxury that could cost nearly $1100 a year! In these tough economic times, many have been forced to bypass this habit, not only reducing their latte consumption, but their calcium intake as well. What most drink enthusiasts don't know is that lattes can provide them the calcium necessary for strong bones to guard against osteoporosis. An average 12 oz. cup of latte, for example, can have as much as 1/3 of the daily recommended calcium intake.(1) That's why GOT MILK? has partnered with award-winning baristas from California to give latte enthusiasts some fun, easy and economical ways to enjoy lattes at home for as little as 35 cents a cup, while still getting the nutrition milk brings to this beloved drink.

"It's all about being creative," says Heather Perry, named United States Barista Champion in 2007 and 2003. "Making the perfect latte is not rocket science. You just need basic ingredients like coffee, tea or chocolate and of course, the ingredient that binds everything together, milk."

Rancho Cucamonga-based Perry along with Master Roaster and Barista from Pasadena Rafael Aguiar have years of experience experimenting with various latte recipes - from traditional to chai to "Latinized" drinks like the Tres Leches iced latte. These experts say Californians don't even need an expensive espresso machine to make their favorite drink at home.

"A simple $20 coffee press or Moka Pot is sometimes all that you need," says Aguiar. "It's all in the way you blend the milk with all the other ingredients to make a rich, flavorful latte."

Available exclusively only on www.gotmilk.com, Aguiar's signature recipe named Aztec Cocoa, for example, uses cinnamon sticks, ground red pepper, brown sugar, chocolate, coffee and of course milk to bring an exotic touch to this spice-filled drink. Perry's Creme Brulee latte, on the other hand, is a mixture of espresso or coffee, vanilla syrup, caramel and steamed milk - a sweet drink that still provides the calcium people need daily.

"Milk can be enjoyed in so many ways just as these talented baristas have shown us," says Steve James, executive director of the California Milk Processor Board (CMPB), the creators of GOT MILK?. "Some people only get their calcium through drinking lattes. These milk-based recipes will not only save Californians money; people will also get the health benefits of strong bones, muscles, hair and nails when drinking their lattes.
