Chestnuts roasting over an open fire are all well and good, but we would much rather have chestnut syrup drizzled into a warm, steamy latte instead.

Since Starbucks Coffee Company introduced the chestnut praline latte to its roster of holiday season-exclusive beverages in 2014, the drink has been a customer favorite. If you’re one who has fallen in love with the seasonal beverage, we’ve got good news for you: you can make it at home in a snap!

That’s right. Save yourself a trip to Starbucks and a few extra bucks by using our recipe to whip up a homemade version of this drink. Try it, and thank us later.

HOW TO MAKE A CHESTNUT PRALINE LATTE AT HOME

Chestnut Praline Latte Recipe

YOU’LL NEED:

  • 3/4 cup of warm milk
  • 1/4 cup of chestnut praline syrup
  • 1 1/2 cup of brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup of warm frothed milk
  • Cinnamon

THE PROCESS:

Step 1:

Start by brewing your coffee; you’ll want it to be hot and fresh. If you want to drink something strong with a bit of extra oomph, use a shot of espresso instead.

Fresh Brewed Coffee

Step 2:

Combine the warm milk and chestnut syrup in a mug and stir until the mixture is smooth. Feel free to use whatever kind of milk you like for this step.

If you’re looking to take the non-dairy route, opt for almond or oat milk instead; the end result will be just as creamy and delicious.

Milk And Chestnut Syrup

Step 3:

Now it’s time to add your coffee or espresso! Pour it in the mug slowly, as we don’t want to lose any of our precious caffeine, and be careful; it’s still hot.

Coffee Into Milk Mixture

Step 4:

Next, use a handheld milk frother to froth 1/4 cup of warm milk. Keep frothing until it’s foamy or the amount of milk appears to have doubled, then pour it into your mug.

Frothed Milk

Step 5:

Finish off the drink with a dash of cinnamon on top of the foam, and there you have it: a homemade chestnut praline latte!

ENJOY!

This is perhaps one of the simplest recipes to follow to create your own version of a Starbucks signature beverage, and we hope you savor it to the last drop.

And if you aren’t the biggest fan of chestnuts but were hoping to sip on a creamy, nutty-flavored latte, you can easily substitute chestnut praline syrup for hazelnut; it’s a slightly different flavor profile for certain, but a hazelnut latte can be just as satisfying.
