There’s nothing like a heartwarming mug of goodness, especially during the holidays and when it’s a homemade latte that’s gingerbread flavoured. Oh yes, gingerbread my friends, that’s epic!
There are more ingredients in this latte than your average latte but I find that completely acceptable as you’re going to be replicating the flavour of gingerbread.
The toppings are also completely optional but highly recommended. I had a batch of my gingerbread men cookies already prepared, so I used those. This is my gingerbread cookie recipe, which you can make because duh, it’s Christmas! They’ll last you for over a week and you can top them on your gingerbread latte’s! The addition of the whip cream makes for a creamy and smooth texture. A dusting of cinnamon is the perfect finishing touch.
How will you enjoy your gingerbread latte? On those cosy evenings leading up to Christmas? Me too! Enjoy!Print
