This holiday season enjoy this gingerbread latte recipe made with organic ingredients, with dairy-free and keto options!
I love homemade latte’s, especially my pumpkin spice latte and coconut milk latte! I recently tried a gingerbread latte at my local coffee shop and fell in love with it’s warm spices and gingerbread flavor. So, I immediately went home and attempted to make my own with spices in my cupboard and created a delicious replica of this holiday drink.
I used homemade french press coffee, organic gingerbread spices like ground ginger and cinnamon, and sweetened the latte with pure maple syrup. Needless to say, this latte is devious and perfect for this time of year.
