Skinny Gingerbread Latte Recipe

The syrup recipe makes two cups of syrup, so you can make several lattes with one recipe.

Are Gingerbread Lattes Good?


Yes, it's a little heavier on the ginger and lighter on the cinnamon than other holiday drinks, so it tastes like gingerbread.  It's a warm, spicy holiday drink.  


If you like gingerbread cookies, then you'll like this healthy gingerbread latte Starbucks recipe. 





What Does Starbucks Gingerbread Latte Taste Like?


The gingerbread latte Starbucks recipe tastes like a gingerbread cookie, but it doesn't have a strong molasses flavor like you'd expect.


Personally, that's fine with me.  Molasses can taste bitter sometimes, so I make this a gingerbread latte recipe without molasses.


It's warm and spicy, but it's a simple recipe with ginger and cinnamon.  


I find their drink pretty sweet.  I like making my own gingerbread syrup for coffee recipe so I can cut back on the sweetness by using less syrup and making my own gingerbread syrup sugar free.


What is in the Starbucks Gingerbread Latte?


A gingerbread latte at Starbucks has:


  • Milk
  • Brewed Espresso
  • Gingerbread Syrup  [Sugar, Water, Natural Flavor, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid]
  • Whipped Cream [Cream (Cream, Mono And Diglycerides, Carageenan)
  • Vanilla Syrup (Sugar, Water, Natural Flavors, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid)]
  • Nutmeg


I'm avoiding carageenan because it can cause inflammation in the body.  I have enough of that, thank you.


I like to make a healthy gingerbread latte at home so I can use real ingredients and avoid artificial ingredients and flavors.  I can also make a gingerbread syrup sugar free to make a vegan gingerbread latte.





Did Starbucks Discontinue Gingerbread Latte?


Yes, Starbucks discontinued this holiday drink.  If you want to have one, you'll have to make a homemade gingerbread latte recipe.


How Do You Make a Gingerbread Latte From Starbucks?


To make a vegan gingerbread latte Starbucks recipe, you'll first make a gingerbread syrup for coffee.  This makes about two cups of syrup, so you will have plenty left to make more homemade gingerbread latte recipes later.


You can also buy  DaVinci Sugar Free Gingerbread Syrup and use that instead of making your own.


Once you make the gingerbread syrup sugar free recipe, then you'll just need espresso or coffee and steamed milk or milk.  You can also top it with whipped cream and nutmeg if desired.


Vegan Gingerbread Latte Recipe


To make a vegan gingerbread latte Starbucks recipe, you will simply need to almond milk or oat milk.  Personally, I prefer oat milk to make a vegan gingerbread latte recipe.  


You can also use coconut whipped cream.  Aldi has a really good one!





Sugar Free Homemade Gingerbread Latte Recipe


To make a sugar free homemade gingerbread latte recipe, you will need to use a sugar substitute for the gingerbread syrup for coffee recipe.


You can use stevia, coconut sugar, monk fruit, or your choice of sweetener to make a gingerbread syrup sugar free.  You can also use half sugar and half substitute to cut back on the sugar.
