There's just something about apples, especially during the Fall season. I literally can eat anything that includes apples and this Apple Crisp Oatmilk Latte is no different.
From this Vegan Apple Bread to these Warm Vegan Apple Cinnamon Pancakes, as you can see---apples are by far the best thing ever invented. Haha. It is so much fun to get creative at home with drinks to suit your personal flavor preferences, and the best part is you can bundle up and get cozy (or sit in front of the AC, depending on the season.) and not have to make a trip to Starbucks!
While Starbucks has a macchiato version of this drink, I wanted to re-create it and turn it into an easy latte because why not, right?
First and foremost, the flavors in this simple and easy Fall drink is enough to convince anyone, however, here are a few more reasons why you'll love this recipe:
The main component in this simple homemade Apple Crisp Oatmilk Latte recipe is the sweet apple flavor, hints of brown sugar and the coffee. To make your drink, you’ll use:
Absolutely! If you’d like to switch things up with the type of plant-based milk that you use—–that’s totally fine! The world of plant-based milk is constantly expanding. From the classics like coconut milk, cashew milk, soy milk and almond milk, we now have delicious options like oat milk, and even potato and quinoa milk.
Here, I’ve curated a list of drinkware and mocktail essentials that I use to achieve my favorite drinking experiences, especially with this Apple Crisp Oatmilk Latte. Everything from my fave glassware, cocktail shakers, ice cube trays, and more. SEE THEM HERE!
Even though this Apple Crisp Oatmilk Latte is based on using Gala apples, you can also switch things up and add a slightly new flare in their flavor profile by adding any of the following apples for a bit more sweetness or tart:
Yes! You can definitely switch things up by serving this Apple Crisp Oatmilk Latte hot or cold whenever you chose to. To serve hot, simply keep the apple crisp syrup mixture warm.
Then, simply warm all remaining latte ingredients together in a small saucepan until heated through. Pour in a mug and top with coconut whipped cream and a few spoonfuls of the apple crisp syrup, if desired.
Making your own homemade coconut whipped cream is so easy! You'll need 1 cup of chilled full-fat coconut cream/milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. On high-speed, whip everything using a whisk attached to an electric stand-mixer or hand-mixer until fluffy and stiff peaks are present. NOTE: Ensuring that your bowl is chilled definitely helps things to whip faster.
When it comes to the Starbucks version of Apple Crisp Macchiato, it's pretty similar to this recipe!
It's made with a brown sugar-apple syrup that is added in with ice and cold or steamed milk, topped with espresso coffee and then drizzled with a spice apple sauce.
If you'd prefer to purchase the main components as opposed to making it, feel free to buy the Monin Spiced Brown Sugar Syrup and Apple Syrup. Just a little goes a long way when whipping this latte together.
Once you see how easy it is to make your own tea lattes at home, you'll never have to go back to the coffee shop again. You'll save money for sure. But your drinks will also taste just how you like them. It's a win-win.
This Apple Crisp latte recipe comes together in a saucepan on the stove. It's full of classic Fall spices, an easy apple-brown sugar syrup, coffee, and milk. You can serve it up hot from the saucepan if you like, or pour it over ice for a refreshing latte during any season.
Absolutely! Although I often make this Apple Crisp Latte with some sort of coffee----cold brew, espresso, etc. You can definitely steep black tea bags as the base of this drink for a nice latte feel as well! About 2-3 tea bags should work for this.
I definitely try to avoid waste at all costs, therefore, I like to repurpose these boiled apples by adding them atop oatmeal, yogurt, pancakes, etc. SO good!
Easy! Simply add the solid syrup to a saucepan and top with apple juice or a bit of water mixed with maple syrup (about 1-2 Tbsps) and let it simmer until it becomes liquid-y again. Drizzle and enjoy!
