Copycat Gingerbread Latte

I find my morning walks quite therapeutic but some days I get really really cold. So when I get in, I make this delicious hug in a cup, copycat gingerbread latte.

Nothing quite compares to a hot cosy snuggly drink on a freezing cold day. Especially during Autumn and during the lead up to Christmas…and who doesn’t love a gingerbread latte? Don’t they kinda taste exactly like a pumpkin latte? They also kinda remind me of indian coffees to be honest. They taste exactly the same but the process is VERY slightly different. 

Although this version doesn’t include the reported 10 – 12 tablespoons of sugar, i think it is still as epic and i think you will love it.

I feel like the holidays should absolutely include these lattes. They are just so adorable and scream family time and home to me. They are basically a gingerbread in drink form enhanced by some coffee.

HOW TO MAKE THIS GINGERBREAD LATTE

This super simple Gingerbread Latte has all the classic holiday flavors of the favorite Starbucks version.

  • You start off by mixing up the molasses, syrup and spices.
  • Then you warm some milk.
  • Add in the brewed coffee and stir until combined.Then bring to a simmer till foamy. Pour into cups.
  • You can add whipped cream and gingerbread too!

By the way, are you looking forward to the holidays? This is my absolute favourite time of year. I love all the lights and the happy vibes. I love that the UK goes all out and London at Christmas time is just magical. The kids love it too. My daughter loves anything sparkly, shiny and my son loves all the huge decorations like that reindeer I shared on my stories the other day.

Recipe Notes

I make dairy free whipped cream by putting a tin of coconut milk into the fridge overnight. In the morning i remove the cream part off the top and whip using a blender. I also add vanilla to it. 

If you can't find blackstrap molasses, you can use honey or extra maple syrup.

You can use any milk to make this latte!
