Last week, the weather dropped about 30 degrees in Chicago, but I’m not complaining. It feels seasonal, just like snow on the ground and a piping hot latte in my hands. All things cozy & fleece just feel right this time of year. I’ve got holiday parties on my mind, and a seemingly endless to do list. My kids are 2 & 7, and they are pumped about the Christmas season. I find myself scheduling more holiday events, baking a little extra, and stepping it up with the decorations.
Cinnamon Spice Latte
It’s a magical time of year, but it’s also loaded with stress. Funny how that happens.
I simplify things for myself by finding ways to get more done in less time. The whole, two birds, one stone principle. I find ways to be more efficient and look for tools that will make my job easier. You know, my part-time job as an elf this time of year.
This machine is my right hand assistant. Not only does it make the best pot of morning coffee that I’ve ever had, but it wows every guest who has entered our house this season.

HOW DO I MAKE A CINNAMON SPICE LATTE? (tip! BEST COFFEE SYSTEM linked here)
- Choose a cup size & brew the coffee
- Mix the milk, brown sugar and cinnamon and heat in the microwave.
- Give it a quick froth on the Ninja Coffee Bar System and then add to the top! How easy?!
The Ninja Coffee Bar® System can six brew sizes and five brew types, and we’ve tried every delicious variation. Mostly because it’s fun. (And tasty.)
See the built-in hot & cold frothing tool on the left side of the system? That’s how I make my signature latte… the Cinnamon Spice!
Following the incredibly easy directions, I use coffee grounds to make a Ninja® Signature Specialty (Concentrated) brew. While the system is doing its thing, I heat up some milk, with brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg mixed in.
I then froth the milk, according to the directions, for 20 to 30 seconds. Top the coffee with milk, and add a sprinkle of cinnamon spice.
