This Cozy Gingerbread Latte for two is just as it’s name states: COZY! Not only is it dairy-free, it’s packed with all the traditional gingerbread spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and molasses. It’s lightly sweetened with a dash of maple syrup, which you can adjust to your taste, and topped with a healthy dose of whipped cream.
Skip the Starbucks line and get ready to make a super flavorful holiday drink in the comfort of your own home. Not only will you save money, you do get a more nutritious alternative, since the flavored syrups contain all kind of artificial ingredients. By now, you all know that I eat all foods – meaning nothing is off limits – even the Starbucks Gingerbread Latte; it’s just that when I do have the time and option to make a more nutritious alternative at home, why not?
Plus, if you feeling especially festive, I recommend you make this with a batch of my Paleo Chocolate Fudge Crinkle Cookies, or a batch of Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies, both of which will have you in the holiday spirit in no time.
It couldn’t be easier to make this copycat Starbucks gingerbread latte at home.
First, you add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend. It’s totally fine if your almond milk are cold, because once the ingredients are well-blended, you just transfer it to a small pot on the stove and warm it up to your liking. This way you can achieve the perfect temperature.
The last step is the garnish, which I love to do with whipped cream. These days, there are many healthier alternatives on the market, including coconut milk-based whipped cream (I find it at Trader Joe’s), but many grocery stores carry it too. But to heck with it, live a little and go with the regular whipped cream. YOLO and it tastes so damn good.
