Healthy Gingerbread Latte Recipe

This Gingerbread Latte recipe is the perfect, cozy homemade drink on a cold winter’s day.

Some of you are probably thinking…it’s so much easier to pick up a festive latte from Starbucks…rather than making your own, right?

But convenience comes at a price…a VERY high sugar price!

A regular Starbucks gingerbread latte has 38 grams of sugar, and a venti gingerbread latte, 49 grams of sugar.  The Starbucks festive drink with the highest sugar content is a grande gingerbread coffee frappuccino with skimmed milk; which comes in at a whopping 68.7 grams of sugar!

To put that in perspective, a glazed doughnut from Krispy Kreme contains 12.6 grams of sugar…so your Starbucks gingerbread drink may have the sugar content of between 3 and 6 donuts!

You can skip the trip to Starbucks and still enjoy this easy, delicious copycat coffee; with a significantly lower sugar content:
