Carrot Cake Latte

CHOW.com asked chefs from a handful of our favorite restaurants to create better versions of seasonal lattes, with quality ingredients. Here’s former Redd pastry chef Nicole Plue’s interpretation. With a frothy top made with cream cheese and carrot juice in the base, this really does taste like the popular dessert. You’ll need a C02 charger (whipped cream canister) for the topping. See more latte interpretations.

Instructions

For the topping:
  1. 1Blend until smooth, then charge in a CO2 charger. (If using the latter, take care not to overcharge or overshake or the mixture will be very thick.) Set aside.

For the base:

  1. 1Combine and steam base ingredients. Pour into a cup and add espresso. Top with cream cheese cream.
