Why this recipe works
This recipe is:
- Easy to make
- Ready in under 5 minutes!
- Free of refined sugar
- Dairy free
This recipe calls for a double shot of espresso. You can use an espresso machine , aeropress, or Moka pot. You can also use a french press to make regular strong coffee.
I try to use local honey when possible.
Use your favorite oat milk here. I love whole milk for its creamy texture. You can use regular whole milk, or a barista version which makes a better froth. You can also make this homemade latte with other types of non-dairy milk, like unsweetened almond milk.
Cinnamon adds a spicy warmth to this drink. You can also garnish with cinnamon sticks!

Froth or steam milk to desired consistency and pour on top of espresso cinnamon mixture.

Frothing Oat Milk:
We all love that beautiful foam on the top of a latte. However, frothing oat milk can be slightly complicated, even if it is the most similar in frothing to dairy milk.
Start with a milk frother or steam wand, but you can also try frothing oat milk in a blender or shaking it in a closed container or jar (not while scalding hot!).

Pour the oat milk latte into a sauce pot or pan and reheat over medium-heat until heated through completely. Don’t let the milk come to a boil but let it gently warm, as some milks (dairy or non-dairy) can curdle or separate.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you reheat this latte?
Yes! Pour the latte into a sauce pan. Heat on low and stir frequently for a few minutes. Once the latte is at the desired temperature, pour the latte into your mug!
Is oat milk gluten free?
Not always. Oat milk can be sometimes contaminated with gluten if they are processed in facilities that handle gluten containing ingredients. If you are celiac or have a stronger gluten intolerance, look for gluten-free certified oats.
How do you froth milk without a frother?
You don’t need a fancy frother to froth your milk at home (although you can get inexpensive ones online!). Heat milk in a small saucepan on the stove while whisking until milk is frothy and bubbly. Check out my post on frothing oat milk for more tips and 8 ways to froth oat milk!
