How To Make The Ultimate Gingerbread Latte At Home

Gingerbread lattes are often associated with Christmas, but who says that those little mugs of deliciousness should be limited to just the month of December?! Personally, we’re a fan of gingerbread treats all year round. We’ve come up with the ultimate guide so you can skip the trip to your local coffee shop and enjoy a super indulgent gingerbread latte without evening leaving the comfort of your own home.

Before we get started, we’re going to hit you with some cold, hard facts about your favourite gingerbread lattes on the current market today.

 Nescafe golds sachets of their limited edition gingerbread latte contain 10.6 grams of sugar, which is 12% of the daily recommended intake, a Starbucks version of the popular festive drink contains an astonishing 68.7 grams of sugar with costa’s adaptation not far behind. Don’t panic, although the sugar content in this super sweet treat is high, you’re in luck because we’re on hand with a totally tasty, guilt-free recipe for you to whip up yourself. 

Gingerbread latte recipe


200ml of skimmed milk or dairy-free alternative

100ml of boiling water

2 teaspoons of our #NotGuilty gingerbread skinny syrup

1 teaspoon of instant coffee

1 mini gingerbread man

Cinnamon powder

Light/low-fat aerosol cream

For a really indulgent treat add in a scoop of low-calorie, white hot chocolate drinking chocolate.


Heat the milk for 30 seconds in the microwave and set aside. Mix the 2 teaspoons of #NotGuilty gingerbread skinny syrup and instant coffee with the boiling water before pouring in the warm milk and giving it a good stir. Top with a squirt of aerosol cream, a drizzle of our #NotGuilty gingerbread syrup, a sprinkle of cinnamon for a little extra flavour, and a mini gingerbread man for a final little touch.
