With social distancing happening throughout the U.S. and a lot of Starbucks closing for the time being, it’s getting harder and harder to get your caffeine fix.
But don’t worry! We have a series of posts about how to make some of your Starbucks favorites from home! Be sure to check out my favorite post: 6 Kid-Friendly Frappuccinos To Make At Home
The Cinnamon Dolce Latte at Starbucks is made up of only 3 ingredients, making this super simple to make from home!
It consists of milk, espresso, and Cinnamon Dolce Syrup. That’s it! Obviously if you want it iced, add ice and you can also add whip cream or cinnamon on top, but the basic beverage is only 3 ingredients!
Below I’ll show you exactly how to put it together for the perfect consistency!
The first ingredient that goes in your cup is Cinnamon Dolce Syrup. You can get this on Amazon. You can also purchase a bottle of Cinnamon Dolce Syrup from Starbucks as long as they have enough in stock to sell them. (sugar-free as well!)
Next is the espresso. Starbucks uses Espresso Roast in the Vanilla Lattes, however you can also order it with Blonde Shots. So use your own preference! There are super cheap Stove-top Espresso Makers on Amazon, as well as Fancier Automatic ones, which in my opinion, are definitely worth the investment!
And finally, the milk. At Starbucks, they use 2% milk for their lattes unless you specify something else. Use whatever milk you prefer!
For hot cinnamon dolce lattes, warm up your milk with a Milk Frother, stove-top, or microwave. If you want to make it iced, pour cold milk straight into your cup and add ice!
As I said before, this is a super easy recipe! What are some more complicated drinks you want us to cover? Comment below! (And be sure to check out our Medicine Ball Recipe!)
