A cosy drink for chilly days…
The Gingerbread Latte is new to me. And I have to say that although I have never been drawn to flavoured coffees this new concoction has become a favourite.
Lightly sweetened with molasses and gently spiced with a lovely gingerbread spice blend, this Gingerbread Latte has become a very comforting drink. Sipping one is a way to slow down during this very busy time of year, which is a gift of sorts.
Making a Gingerbread Latte at home couldn’t be easier, although it feels like a bit of an indulgence. All it takes are four ingredients and a couple of minutes. Molasses is such an ideal way to sweeten this spiced drink. It adds flavour that complements the coffee and the spice, and molasses isn’t too sweet. So unlike hot chocolate, a Gingerbread Latte doesn’t leave you feeling like you over did it.
In this hectic week leading up to Christmas, take a moment for you, curl up in a cosy chair and enjoy a warm Gingerbread Latte.
