This easy, naturally sweetened Maple Cinnamon Latte recipe is a delicious, lightly sweetened latte flavored with pure maple syrup and cinnamon. Made with espresso or brewed coffee, it’s a fall morning beverage you’ll love!
And the best thing about this Maple Cinnamon Latte recipe? It couldn’t be simpler to make at home without any special equipment! Honestly, this is one of my favorite hot drinks to make during fall.
Why I love this recipe
When the days grow chilly and blustery, and the leaves turn brilliant shades of red, gold, orange, and brown, a morning latte isn’t far from our minds.
Flavored lattes, like my Pumpkin Spice Latte, are always a fall favorite with the warming mix of spices inspired by the pumpkin season.
And as the days grow even darker and colder, adding a London Fog Drink is always a welcome pleasure.
This Maple Cinnamon Latte will be yet another flavored latte to add to the fall and winter beverages we love. Plus, it’s incredibly easy to make at home with a few simple ingredients.
How to Froth Milk
Begin by heating the milk. Here are the best tips on which milk to use and how to heat it:
- Use fresh milk: This is key to getting the best foam. Milk that has sat in the refrigerator for a while doesn’t foam as well as fresh milk.
- Whole milk foams best because it has the highest milk fat: A 2% milk also works.
- Scald the milk for best results: This means the milk will be hot but not simmering. I find this video tutorial really helpful.
How to Froth Milk with a Milk Frother
A handheld milk frother is one of the easiest tools to use when frothing milk. It’s inexpensive and a great tool to have on hand. Here’s how to use it.
- Heat the milk to scalding.
- Transfer milk to a tall container and hold at an angle.
- Move the frother up and down until foam begins to form, about 20 seconds. Tap on the counter to break up large bubbles.
How to Froth Milk with a Whisk
If you don’t have a handheld milk frother on hand, you can also use a whisk to froth milk. This method takes a bit longer and doesn’t result in a foam that is as bubbly. Here’s how to froth milk with a whisk.
- Heat the milk to scalding.
- Whisk the milk vigorously until foamy.
- Pour into a pitcher, and tap on the counter to break down large bubbles.
