Is there anything more wonderful on a winter day than snuggling up on the couch, sipping on a delicious coffee? It is my favourite way to spend weekend mornings (and afternoons)! Especially with a delicious, flavoured latte!

No need to venture out into the cold to get your hands on a gingerbread latte when you can easily whip one up at home! Talk about convenience! It is also far more economical as this recipe costs only a fraction of the cost to make at home!

To make a latte, you will need a frother but if you don’t have one, you can make a delicious gingerbread coffee by skipping the frothing and just warming the milk.

How to make a Gingerbread Latte

To make this latte at home, you will need to:

  1. Whip up the gingerbread syrup: In a small saucepan over medium heat, add all of the syrup ingredients except the vanilla extract. Simmer together for 5-7 minutes, whisking often. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla. Let it cool. Once cooled, run it through a cheese cloth and transfer to a mason jar or other container.

  2. Add syrup to hot coffee: Add 2 tablespoons of gingerbread syrup and the hot coffee to a mug. Stir together.

  3. Froth the milk and add it to the mug: In a milk frother, froth and heat the milk (if your frother does not warm the milk, warm the milk first on the stovetop). Pour the frothed milk into the mug.

  4. Optional: Sprinkle with some cinnamon and top with whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!
