about this Cinnamon Dolce Latte Recipe
I love this homemade cinnamon dolce latte so much! It only requires 4 ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry! Cinnamon Dolce simply means ‘cinnamon sweet’. So think cinnamon sugar toast topping; yes that addicting sprinkle you would slather onto a buttered piece of toast! That is where my mind drifts off to when I sip this copycat cinnamon dolce latte recipe.
I’ve recreated it at home with better-for-you ingredients and for a whole a lot cheaper! I am talking pennies!
Ingredients you’ll need for this recipe:
- Coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- Milk of choice
how to make a cinnamon dolce latte like starbucks?
- Start by making your cinnamon sugar simple syrup. In a small sauce pan, bring the water, sugar, and cinnamon to a boil. Let boil for 2 minutes, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Next, brew a double strength cup of coffee. Use twice the amount of ground coffee per water.
- While the coffee brews, add milk to a saucepan and warm or microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, or until desired warmth. Froth milk once warm with a handheld frother or by adding milk to a blender and blending on high.
- In 2 coffee mugs, add 1 tablespoon cinnamon syrup, then divide the coffee and milk between both, finishing with the foam on top.
- For a special finish, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar!
Can you make a big batch of this Cinnamon Dolce Latte Recipe
Yes! You can make a double or trip batch of the syrup and store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 weeks. I would suggest brewing the coffee and frothing the milk fresh as it tastes best then.
For today’s homemade cinnamon dolce latte, I used Folgers Perfect Measures. (NOTE: Folgers Perfect Measures are no longer sold so please follow directions above to make double-strength coffee.) They are genius for people like me, I can never get my cup of coffee justtttt right. These premeasured tabs are the perfect scoop without the scoop. They are 100% pure ground coffee, so you can brew your perfect pot every time. If you crave a stronger cup, add one or two more tabs or if you are like me and enjoy a lighter cup of coffee, then I would use fewer. It creates the ultimate customization when creating drinks such as this cinnamon dolce coffee recipe!
