Healthy Gingerbread Latte


Since my healthy version of the Chai Tea Latte went down so well I thought I'd concoct another Starbucks special. Given that its red cup season, what better than one of their christmas drinks - the gingerbread latte. This is simple, quick and can be dairy and soya free. 


What you will need:
Gingerbread spice mix or 
1/2 tsp of Cinnamon
1/4 tsp of Ground Gloves
1/4 tsp of ground ginger
1 Shot of coffee (Either 1 tbsp of instant with a little water or if you 
are lucky enough to have an espresso machine use a shot of that)
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp of honey or unrefined sugar
3/4 Mug of Almond Milk (or whichever milk you prefer)

Directions:
1) Heat the milk in a jug in the microwave then whisk vicariously with a fork or a mini whisk. (To get it very frothy use a blender)
2) Put the spices, vanilla and stevia into your mug. 
3) Pour the coffee over the spices and mix everything up. 
4) Add your hot frothy milk on top and voila! I like to finish with a dusting of cinnamon. 

Let me know if you try this or my chai tea latte out! It's much healthier and cheaper than Starbucks and you don't have to leave your house to get it :) Perfect if you have a hangover during the holiday season!

This sounds delish! I love these kind of hot drinks, but don't have a Starbucks in my town, so rarely have them - will definitely be giving this recipe a go! x
