Make a delicious homemade Maple Cinnamon Oat Latte with a spiced syrup, oat milk and cold brew coffee for a creamy and satisfying morning drink.
If you're like me and love to start your day with an iced coffee, you're going to love this creamy oat milk drink. It's made with cold brew for an extra caffeine kick and has a sweet homemade maple cinnamon syrup you can use to flavor your morning brew all week long.
Maple Cinnamon Latte Ingredients
The two components in this simple homemade latte are the maple cinnamon syrup and the coffee. Here's what you need to make the syrup:
Brown sugar. I use organic to make sure it's vegan.
Vanilla extract. Make sure you're using the real stuff, not imitation!
Maple syrup. Likewise, imitation syrup won't' taste the same as pure maple syrup.
Cinnamon. You can use ground or cinnamon sticks if you prefer.
To make your lattes, you'll use:
Cold brew. You can also use chilled brewed coffee.
Oat milk. Make your own! Or use store-bought oat milk.
Coconut whipped cream. This is also easy to make with a chilled can of full-fat coconut cream.
Cinnamon stick. This is optional but adds a nice touch to each glass.
If you want to drink this chilled oat maple latte every morning, it's helpful to have the syrup prepped and ready to go. Once you make and cool the syrup fully, you can store it in an airtight container or glass jar in the fridge for up to a week.
When you're ready to serve, stir the maple cinnamon syrup into your oat milk and add your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add together all ingredients (whisking them to combine) and bring to a boil, about 1-2 minutes.
Reduce the heat to low and simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
MAKE THE LATTE:
To serve, fill ice into a 12 or 16-ounce glass and pour in the milk followed by the cold brew, ¼ cup of the maple cinnamon syrup, stirring them together until the mixture becomes a light color. Top with coconut whipped cream, drizzles of maple syrup, and a cinnamon stick (or two), if desired.
Sip and enjoy!
Tips & Tricks
WHAT PLANT-BASED MILKS ARE GOOD FOR THIS RECIPE? My go-to plant-based brand for Oat milk when using store-bought is the Forager Project. However, you can always use your fave or one of the following: Almond, coconut milk, homemade oat milk (froths/foams VERY WELL), flax milk, etc.
