Make This Season Jolly with Vegan Gingerbread Latte

The holiday season rolls around and I find myself switching from pumpkin spice latte to this homemade gingerbread latte. I don’t know which drink I like more. Both beverages are soul-warming, delicious, and just a nice treat to have in the morning. Despite my slight obsession with both of these lattes, I can’t deny the fact that the pumpkin spice latte reminds me of fall.

My gingerbread latte, on the other hand, smells like Christmas in a cup. It also tastes so divine and flavorsome that I want to have one cup of this holiday drink after another. And since we are just a week away from Christmas, I’m inclined to make this vegan gingerbread latte a part of a daily routine.

How to Make Vegan Gingerbread Latte at Home

Vegan gingerbread latte just the way you want it from the convenience of your own kitchen in just a few minutes? Count me in. While I hardly ever set my foot on Starbuck’s floor, I get fancy making specialty coffee drinks at home from time to time. Christmas certainly awakens Julia Child in me and inspires me for a little culinary creation. 

It takes just a few ingredients and ten minutes of your time. Top everything with a pinch of this warming spice, a teaspoon of another, hefty amount of love of this holiday season, and voila, your gingerbread latte is ready to enjoy. It’s a drink to keep your warm and jolly all holiday season long. On the second thought, you can drink your homemade plant-based gingerbread latte all year round.
