Ryan Seacrest might just get promoted to Head Barista at Starbucks – if he applies. The 45-year-old “American Idol” host and “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” face today wowed viewers with a very unusual and TikTok-friendly whipped coffee-making session, with fans on the “Live!” Instagram account getting one heck of a lesson in how to perfect the perfect drink. Ryan, who has been in the news as co-host Kelly Ripa takes time off this week, was solo in this video, and coffee lover Kelly would likely approve. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video. It comes following food ones featuring Ryan prepping both tortillas and a very cheesy batch of feta pasta, both shared yesterday to the “Live!” Instagram account. Today brought the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” producer all smiles in a shirt and tie, also wearing an apron bearing the syndicated talk show’s logo.
Ryan, seen on-set and in a makeshift kitchen, was with his Pyrex gear and letting fans know that you actually shouldn’t use regular coffee for this. It’s instant.
Pouring in his ingredients into a mixing bowl, Ryan listed a “pinch of cinnamon” and oat milk, plus maple sugar as part of a provided ingredients list, with collagen added. Ryan made it over ice with perfect chocolate curls to finish it off, then showing off the tall glass and seeing fans send him the thumbs-up.
Turns out, Ryan is a giant coffee addict – as is Kelly, who takes a Starbucks latte on set after her morning “bullet coffee.” See his insane dedication after the video.
In 2018, Ryan opened up about his relationship with coffee, something that seems to be a serious deal. “So the morning starts with a very bold, strong coffee,” he told The Wrap. “I drink it FAST — then I go to work.”
“When I leave here I’m getting a package of prep for tomorrow morning’s [‘Live With Kelly & Ryan],” he added: “But, you know, for some reason I thrive on fatigue and I say ‘Yes’ to everything that’s offered to me.” See Kelly’s routine below!
Kelly, known for her super-healthy lifestyle, is right there with Ryan, perhaps even ahead of him. In 2016, the mom of three opened up to The Cut, revealing:
“I make a “Bullet Coffee” at home in the morning — it’s coffee, two shots of espresso and a tablespoon of ghee and then a packet of collagen powder. Ryan’s girlfriend got me hooked on it and I just sort of believe that if I drink it every day, my hair will be as thick as hers.”
