Copycat Gingerbread Latte Starbucks Recipe

This homemade holiday latte has a delicious gingerbread flavor that has plenty of warming spices and a touch of sweetness. With just a handful of simple ingredients, this low-fat option beats the Starbucks version for those seeking a healthier alternative than the local coffee shop offers.

Before I lost 125 pounds  I would drink a little coffee with my cream and sugar! I would even get extra tablespoons of syrup in my gingerbread latte.

Now that I pay attention to what I put into my body, I know the chemicals in the gingerbread latte syrup, not to mention the whole milk are terrible, so I decided to make my own yummy gingerbread latte.

Gingerbread Latte Ingredients

To make a Gingerbread Latte you will need

Copycat Starbucks Gingerbread Syrup Recipe 

  • Maple Syrup – go for the real stuff and not the pancake syrup.
  • Molasses – I like to use blackstrap molasses for a deep rich flavor.
  • Vanilla extract – get the best your budget will allow.
  • Cinnamon – get the best your budget will allow.
  • Cloves – just a pinch because they are potent.
  • Nutmeg – grate your own for the ultimate flavor.
  • Ginger – a pinch of ground ginger is the star of this syrup.

Non-dairy milk

  • Your milk of choice -cashew milk, coconut milk, soy milk, oat milk, or almond milk – they are all delicious.


  • You can use strong coffee as well.


How to make a gingerbread latte Starbucks recipe

You will want to start with this homemade gingerbread syrup.

Next, you will want to froth the milk and there are three ways to froth it. 

  • Milk Frother – If you have one, simply fill the milk frother up to its maximum line and start the frothing.
  • Handheld Milk Frother – Warm the gingerbread creamer to 140°F to 155°F. Then using a handheld frother, start frothing until it becomes foamy.
  • Jar Method– Place the gingerbread coffee creamer in a glass jar (without the lid) and microwave until warm – do not boil. Place the lid on the jar and shake it until foamy. It will become foamy. Be careful of the temperature when holding a glass jar.

Brew espresso and pour two shots of espresso or hot coffee into your mug.

Stir in two tablespoons of gingerbread syrup. Top with frothy milk and dairy-free whipped cream for an extra treat and enjoy!
