This Vanilla Maple Cinnamon Latte is the taste of the holidays in a glass. Creamy vanilla mixed with spicy cinnamon and sweet maple syrup makes this latte incredible. This latte is dairy free and refined sugar free. It takes less than 5 minutes to make as well!
This cozy latte is perfect to keep you going during holiday shopping or just during your regular day to day. This latte is simple to make and made with common ingredients. The latte is refined sugar free due to the maple syrup and vegan due to the plant based milk (you may use regular milk if you are not vegan).
I know I need an extra caffeine kick in the afternoon now with the sun setting by 4:30 pm. Also, I know that I do not like to spend $5 on a latte everyday.
I absolutely love cinnamon and maple. I love them apart - I love them together. So making a latte with them both was no question.
And while I love sugar in my sweets, I do not like it in my lattes as much. So leaving out refined sugar makes me feel better about drinking this!
A nice healthy jolly holly latte.
Ingredients for Healthy Maple Latte
This recipe calls for the following ingredients: Espresso; maple syrup; almond milk; vanilla bean paste; cinnamon; nutmeg; and allspice.
I have provided substitutions for you.
Espresso- You may also use strong coffee if you are sensitive to espresso.
Maple Syrup - Please be sure to use a pure maple syrup, and not one that has added sugar! If you do not have maple syrup or do not like it, you make substitute regular sugar at a 1-1 ratio.
Almond Milk- You may use any plant based milk you like. You may use vanilla or original flavor.
Vanilla Bean Paste - I love vanilla bean paste, but it can be tricky to find. You may sub vanilla extract at a 1-1 ratio.
Cinnamon - If you do not have cinnamon, you may sub allspice at a 1-1 ratio.
Nutmeg- If you do not have nutmeg, you may omit it.
Allspice - If you do not have allspice, sub cinnamon at a 1-1 ratio.
Ice - I did not ice my latte, but you certainly can!
Booze - If you would like, you may add in a shot of maple whiskey or sub the Bailey's Almande for the almond milk!
How To Make This Maple Cinnamon Vanilla Cinnamon Latte
This latte is extremely easy to make! In fact, I sometimes wonder why I buy lattes when they are indeed so easy to make.
Simple heat your almond milk and stir in your spices, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
Once it is simmering, take it off the burner and froth it. If you do not have a frother, you may use a whisk!
You will make your espresso separately. I use a stove top espresso maker, but any will do. You also can use strong coffee.
Pour your milk mixture into a mug.
Then pour the espresso on top of it.
You may garnish with a cinnamon stick and vegan whip cream.
If you enjoy yours iced, place your espresso and milk mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes then following the same steps for pouring. Then, add ice!
