Starbucks Gingerbread Latte
With this Starbucks gingerbread latte recipe, there's no need to wait until the holidays to enjoy this limited-time Starbucks beverage. While this coffee drink is typically only offered seasonally by the cafe chain, the ingredients are available year-round and the recipe itself is quite simple. Starbucks sells its own gingerbread-flavored syrup, making this latte a snap for those who have it on hand. However, home baristas can also create the syrup at home with just a few ingredients.
Starbucks claims that this beverage has the flavor of freshly-baked gingerbread, and it can be a satisfying option for those who prefer to drink their dessert, as well as those who like a sweet, creamy pick-me-up in the morning.

Making a Starbucks Gingerbread Latte
- For a more aromatic ginger flavor, you can buy fresh ginger and grate it for the syrup instead of using the dried spice.
- Strong regular coffee can replace the espresso if you don't have an espresso machine.
- For a healthier version, instead of using syrup you may heat the ginger, cinnamon, vanilla and coffee with molasses and a natural sugar substitute like stevia.
- For a vegan version, top with warm soy milk or almond milk instead of dairy milk.
