Starbucks Copycat Honey Latte

Honey Latte {Starbucks Copycat}

So have you tried the oatmilk honey latte from Starbucks yet? It’s so good! It’s one of the first things I have had oat milk in (apart from an unfortunate oatmilk yogurt that I found in the sale section of my local co-op) and it tasted great! It was a bit nutty and creamy, perfect in a latte. 

Now my version of the oatmilk honey latte from Starbucks calls for either oat milk or dairy milk.  I know some people are on the fence or leery of oat milk so I want people to know they can use any milk that they want whether it is oat milk, dairy milk, almond milk, rice milk, soy milk, etc.  Experiment with the recipe and figure out what you like best!

Common Questions About Making a Honey Latte

Can you put honey in coffee?

Of course! I love putting honey in my coffee, it gives it such a nice flavor and a bit of sweetness.

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 honey, use an immersion blender to foam it up a bit before pouring into a mug.

Can you make a honey latte vegan?

Unfortunately no.  Generally, honey is not vegan as it is made by bugs but you could always use a little bit of pure maple syrup instead of honey in the recipe along with using dairy-free milk (such as oat milk).

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.  Obviously, you can adjust the proportions of espresso/coffee to milk to your preference, some people enjoy stronger lattes than others.

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine milk and honey. Stir frequently for about 4-5 minutes or until the milk has warmed up.

  3. Pour espresso and the honey milk into a mug. Top with whipped cream (optional) and serve.


  1. It's optional to whip the mik but it does get it closer to the consistency of the steamed milk that is used in lattes at coffee shops.
  2. Don't have an espresso machine? No worries - use 1/2 cup milk and 3/4 cup strongly brewed coffee or make the "espresso" with an aeropress.
