I remember drinking coffee at a young age and my mom telling me that it was going to stunt my growth. Now today she jokes with me saying that drinking coffee is the reason I’m so short. (Mom, I’m taller than you – haha) I’ve always had a love for coffee, going to coffee shops, picking up a cup from the local gas station, and to now owning a coffee maker.
I don’t usually get too fancy with making my own coffee. I brew it, throw some sugar in my mug with the coffee and I’m out the door. I never thought to make a latte at home, because it seemed difficult. Normally, I’m in a rush to get to work or class. International Delight® One Touch Latte™ has stepped up my coffee game to not just a mug of boring coffee but to a fancy latte fit to be in coffee shops. All made right in my kitchen.
Coconut Vanilla Latte
For my first at home latte I decided to make a Coconut Vanilla Latte using the Vanilla One Touch Latte™. It’s so easy to use. Fill your coffee cup or mug 2/3 with coffee. Shake the One Touch Latte™ can well, then press and hold 5-7 seconds above your coffee to make delicious froth. The more froth you want, the longer your hold.
You will know that you added the frothing coffee creamer correctly if it’s not all clumpy. It should look light and frothy – not like whip cream. Since this is the first ever frothing coffee cream I avoided adding any sugar or flavoring to my coffee before using. The One Touch Latte™ adds flavor and sweetness to your coffee preventing you from having to use a flavored coffee or flavored creamer as well.
I love drinking coffee early in the morning. However, in Texas it gets hot quick! By adding coconut ice cream to my latte I’m able to turn a regular cup of coffee into a delicious latte dessert. Now I enjoy my latte in the comfort of my backyard during the summer and it is both delicious and refreshing.

Sitting on the back porch with a latte and having some mother/daughter time is how I will start off Mother’s Day with my mom. My mom loves relaxing outside, whether while working from her laptop or simply reading a book in her hammock, so it will be nice to spend time with her over a homemade latte. Knowing that I can play barista for the day will be impressive.
Vanilla isn’t the only flavor of International Delight® One Touch Latte™ that Walmart sells, they also have caramel and mocha. The great thing about the One Touch Latte™ besides the fact that it’s super easy to use is that you get seven uses out of one can! That’s a week worth of lattes.
You can find the One Touch Latte™ in the dairy section at Walmart with all the other International Delight® creamers.
