Common Questions About Making a Mocha Latte

What is a mocha latte made of?

A mocha latte is made of espresso, milk, and chocolate syrup. 

What is the difference between a latte and a mocha latte?

This seems to be a common question with a very simple answer – a mocha latte is simply a normal latte (made with espresso and steamed milk) plus a chocolate syrup in it.

Can a mocha 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. Check that your chocolate syrup is vegan! It should be as the main ingredients are usually sugar, corn syrup, and cocoa powder but it’s worth confirming.
  3. 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 chocolate syrup?

Most grocery stores should carry it in the area by the coffee department with all of the drink/dessert sauces and syrups.  There is a Starbucks branded version you can use or a few other varieties.  Click HERE for my homemade recipe.

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.
