Gingerbread Latte

Who needs Starbucks when you can make your own homemade Gingerbread Latte? The cinnamon, nutmeg, and molasses flavors will warm you right up.

We have a total soft spot for warm, seasonal holiday drinks at coffee shops like Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Peppermint Mochas. Are you with us on this one? In the same way that stopping for a scoop or ice cream feels, there’s something special about taking the kids out to get a favorite warm drink.

The only real downside is when we look at the nutritional information on their recipes and realize the amount of sugar and additives in each cup full. Not exactly what you want coursing through your body. How hard could it be to make your own specialty drinks? We’ve found out it’s actually really easy!

Here at One Potato, we’re total gingerbread lovers. From gingerbread pancakes to gingerbread doughnuts, gingerbread bundt cake, and, of course, gingerbread cookies, we have the smell wafting throughout our kitchen all November and December long. After all, when it’s the holiday season, we all want to be wrapped up in the smell of fresh spices and molasses. 

Pair this recipe with some of your favorite holiday cookies or my Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts, some holiday music and get ready snuggle up on your couch for the cold winter months.
