Ingredients

  • Whisk together almond milk, spices and molasses for approximately 30 seconds until everything is thoroughly combined. Pour into a mug + top with espresso.

Notes

Substitutions for this Gingerbread Latte
  • Can I make this whole30? Yes, omit the molasses. 
  • Honey/ Maple Syrup: You can use either in place of molasses but it will not have as much of a 'gingerbread-y' taste.
  • Milk: You can use any milk in this recipe and it will work just fine. I prefer non-dairy milk but if you like regular milk and don't follow any specific diet feel free to use that! Homemade almond milk or walnut milk go great in this recipe,
  • Can I make this without an espresso machine? Our Nespresso is one of the most used kitchen utensils that we have and I think it is well worth the $$ (If you buy even ONE latte a week at Starbucks and make it at home instead this will pay for itself!) You could sub in 1/2 cup coffee to this recipe but it will not have the same amount of caffeine and may taste a little watered down.. Treat yourself and get the nespresso machine (They're less $110!)
  • Can I make this without a frother? Yes! You can whisk the milk vigorously in the pan and it will get super frothy!
