The holidays might be behind us, but the winter weather is just getting started, and gingerbread is still very much in season. That’s why you should get cozy while sipping this homemade spiced gingerbread latte. It’s an easy recipe to make and it’s sure to warm you up on a cold day.
What You’ll Need
- Medium Bowl
- Milk Steamer (you can also use a saucepan or mason jar)
- Two Coffee Mugs

- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 3 tablespoons molasses
- 1 ½ cup milk any kind
In the medium bowl, combine espresso, spices, and molasses.

Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or a small gingerbread cookie.
Tips And Tricks
As you can see, gingerbread lattes are easy to make, and you’re sure to love this recipe as it is. However, if you want to experiment a little bit and see how you can adjust this recipe to your specific tastes, here are a few suggestions you may want to think about:
- Use Coffee Instead: If you don’t have an espresso machine you may want to substitute strong coffee. Simply make the coffee as concentrated as you can. Consider using an extra ounce or two for flavor.
- Mix Up Your Garnishes: Who’s to say you have to stick with cinnamon on top? Maybe you’d like to crumble a gingerbread cookie, added a peppermint candy cane, or sprinkle in some chocolate chips.
- Switch Milks: There’s no law that says you have to use cow’s milk. Maybe you want to try almond milk instead.
