One of the perks of having a solid at-home coffee brewer is the ability to try your hand at replicating your favorite coffee shop’s lattes.

Enjoy the flavor profile of your favorite coffee or espresso blend and the spicy sweetness of ground cinnamon with this Starbucks copycat drink.

WHAT EXACTLY IS CINNAMON DOLCE SYRUP?

While Starbucks boasts its own special recipe, cinnamon dolce syrup is easy to make at home and typically takes about 5 minutes to whip up. Combine brown sugar, white sugar, water, and of course, cinnamon and simmer in a saucepan on medium heat until all the sugar dissolves, and you’ve got a syrup you can use in any coffee recipe you like!

Don’t fret if you don’t have these ingredients on hand at home. We’re using a combination of maple syrup and cinnamon in our recipe below, and it makes a pretty good substitute and saves you a couple of minutes of prep time.

HOW TO MAKE A HOMEMADE CINNAMON DOLCE LATTE

Spiced Cinnamon Dolce Latte Recipe

YOU’LL NEED:

  • 1 cup of warm milk
  • 1/2 cup of brewed coffee
  • 1/8 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons of maple syrup

THE PROCESS:

Step 1:

Start by brewing your favorite strong coffee or espresso. It doesn’t really matter what kind of coffee you use, but make sure it’s strong enough to accommodate your taste preferences and caffeine needs for the day.

Brewed Coffee

Step 2:

Add your vanilla extract, maple syrup, and cinnamon to the cup of coffee and stir until the mixture is smooth.

Mixed Ingredients

Step 3:

Froth your milk until it’s foamy and bubbly, then use a spoon to scoop the foamy top layer into a separate container. But don’t forget about the foam; you’ll need it to top off your latte later!

Foamed Milk

Step 4:

Carefully pour the rest of your milk into the cinnamon-coffee mixture.

Milk Foam On Top

Step 5:

Last but certainly not least, top your drink with the remainder of your milk foam. (If you have a major sweet tooth and crave an extra dose of sugar, you can use whipped cream to top your latte instead.) For an extra bit of flair and flavor, dust a layer of cinnamon over the foam and enjoy!

Cinnamon Topping

If you loved this flavor in your latte, then you’ll love it in a frappuccino, too! Add ground cinnamon and maple syrup (or homemade cinnamon dolce syrup) to milk, coffee, and ice to a blender and top the creamy coffee drink with whipped cream for a cool, refreshing treat.
