It’s gingerbread season! After making my gingerbread simple syrup recently, I decided that I just had to use it to make a gingerbread latte! It ended up turning out just as amazing as I expected and it reminded me of Christmas in a cup.

Common Questions About Making a Gingerbread Latte

What is in a Starbucks gingerbread latte?

A Starbucks gingerbread latte is made with gingerbread syrup, steamed milk, and espresso.

Are lattes sweet?

Lattes can either be sweet or not.  A latte is made with steamed milk and espresso which is not a sweet drink but you can add syrups and flavors into it that make it sweet such as mocha or caramel.

How can I steam milk at home?

One of the best parts of a latte at a coffee shop is the steamed milk in the latte.  The easiest way I have found to get a similar effect at home is once you have heated your milk with the vanilla, use an immersion blender to foam it up a bit before pouring into a mug.

Can a gingerbread latte be vegan?

While it may not be listed as vegan in the recipe, it can be made vegan with some simple swaps.

  1. Swap dairy milk for your favorite dairy alternatives such as soy, oat, or almond milk.
  2. Sub out the whipped cream for a vegan whipped cream made with something like coconut milk! You can either make it at home or buy it in a can from most grocery stores.

Where can I get gingerbread simple syrup?

Most grocery stores should carry it in the area by the coffee department with all of the drink/dessert sauces and syrups or you making it at home using my recipe by clicking HERE.

Can I make a latte without espresso?

Yes, so there are a few different options for ways to get close to espresso.  The cheapest option would be to brew quite strong coffee in a normal coffee pot which won’t be exactly the same but it’ll work.  If you have a moka pot or an aeropress coffee maker, those will get you pretty close to regular espresso.  If you use the moka pot or espresso, follow the same proportions in the recipe but if you choose to go the strongly brewed coffee route, use 3/4 cups coffee and 1/2 cup milk.
