Homemade Honey Latte

It’s been a while since I posted a coffee recipe! Once upon a time, Starbucks made a Honey Latte. They were my favorite, and I was hooked. One day, after ordering an Iced Honey Latte, the barista told me they were seasonal, and no longer on the menu. It was honey heartbreak. (But seriously, what season is honey in anyways?!)  I have waited for them to return with no luck, until this morning, when I decided to take matters into my own hands.

Golden Goodness

I know honey is practically tea’s best friend, but it sure works with coffee too. If you like your latte’s sweet, this is a perfect alternative to a pump of white chocolate syrup. It’s sweet and delicious and melts into the steamed milk like dulce de leche.

No espresso maker, no problem. All you need is a coffee maker and a stovetop. This was the first time I tried steaming my milk in a sauce pan and it worked out great!

Honey Latte (Version 1)

  • 2 shots espresso or 1/4 cup STRONG coffee (like my title ;) )
  • 1 Cup (8 fl. oz.) non-fat milk
  • 1 Tablespoon pure honey

Heat the milk in a sauce pan. After about 3 minutes, add in the honey and whisk together. Heat until it is steamy, but not boiling. Whisk rapidly to produce a little “foam”.

Pour your espresso/coffee, into your coffee mug. Pour the honey milk into the coffee.

Wanna twist? Try Honey NUT Latte:

Instead of regular non-fat milk, substitute unsweetened Almond Milk, or add a drop of almond extract to your honey milk mixture in the saucepan. Go nuts!

So there, Starbucks. I don’t need your stinkin’ latte, I can make my own :)

  1. For the honey but latte, does the vanilla unsweetened Almond Milk work or should I get the regular? And as for the pure honey you mention, does the honey in the bear squeeze bottle work?

  2. I don’t like too sweet, so I put barely a third teaspoon of honey in mine. Used my espresso machine to foam milk, divine if you can have it. Amaze.

  3. Amazing!!!! Followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious . I use organic pure honey, unsweetened almond milk and cafe bustelo.
