Gingerbread Oatmilk Latte
As much as I like to go to local coffee shops and make fancy drinks, it gets a bit expensive to do so more than once a week, so I like to make my own at home sometimes on my days off. My drink of choice lately has been a Gingerbread Oatmilk Latte! I saw one on a menu and decided to recreate it at home. I have been making it for the past few weeks and it is so delicious I thought I would share it with you all!
I made a gingerbread syrup, which is the flavoring element for this drink and it is super easy to make. You just mix everything together in a jar and keep it in the refrigerator for when you want to make yourself a delicious drink! For my coffee syrups, I like to use a maple syrup base which is what I did for this one as well, since it goes so well with the flavors of gingerbread. I also added in a little molasses which is one of the flavoring elements of gingerbread cookies. For the spices I use ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and allspice which is the same as the blend I use to make gingerbread cookies. I also add a touch of vanilla. The combination smells amazing!
When I want to make a latte, I add it to a cup, add my coffee, some hot steamed oatmilk and sometimes if I am feeling really fancy, some whipped cream and cinnamon on top. Sometimes I leave it off, but it is so darn delicious! I have been using an almond milk whipped cream from Aldi lately and it works perfect for drinks!
This is so heavenly! Just sweet enough for me with the warming flavors of gingerbread, the richness of oatmilk and whipped cream and it is so wonderful with the coffee! This Gingerbread Oatmilk Latte is the perfect thing to sip on while you decorate the Christmas tree and listen to Christmas music! Which is exactly what I did on my day off last week. I am loving this time of year, and I hope you are as well!
