This dairy-free delight is easy to make and tastes better then the Starbuck's version!
It makes for a perfect morning coffee treat or after dinner dessert.
When you make these types of drinks at home you can control exactly how much of each ingredient fits your palette, and most importantly you control the amount of sugar that goes into your mug.
Tools you'll need for this recipe:
Linked are the tools I personally own and use often. I personally would strongly suggest investing in a milk frother because it has changed the game for me in making any type of fun hot drink.
(TIP: if you do not have either of these items the recipe will be fine to make with regular coffee and you can heat the milk a little bit in a small saucepan on the stove on medium heat)
An incredible superfood found in this beverage is ginger. Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory for the body. It provides this drink with a little "kick" in the tastebuds and in our digestion.

1 tsp maple syrup or date syrup
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2-3 shots of espresso
1/2 cup unsweetened plant milk
pinch of nutmeg (topping)
In a mug, mix together the maple syrup/date syrup, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg
Prepare the espresso machine and brew 2-3 shots of espresso over the gingerbread syrup mixture.
Once brewed, remove the mug and stir the espresso and syrup together.
Steam the plant milk in the frother and pour it over the espresso. Top with a pinch of nutmeg and enjoy! Tip: Use a latte stencil to make a fun holiday design with your cinnamon!
