The best part about this oat milk latte is that it’s super easy to make! All you need is oat milk, a sweetener of your choice (like maple syrup or agave), vanilla extract or powder and a 1/4 tsp of lavender buds.

2. Feel Cozy with Cinnamon Spice Oatmilk Latte
Oat milk is an alternative dairy-free and vegan milk that is becoming increasingly popular. It has a creamy and slightly sweet flavor and is easily 'frothable', which makes it the perfect base for an easy-to-make latte.
It's also low in fat and high in nutrients like protein, calcium, and iron. The best part is that it's incredibly inexpensive to make at home!
This is a great option for those who are trying to cut down on their sugar intake, as well as for anyone looking to make a healthy coffee drink that's both delicious and nutritious.
Cinnamon Spice Oatmilk lattes are a quick and easy way to enjoy a rich, flavorful latte without all the calories. You can use a variety of mix-ins and toppings to make this a truly unique latte experience.
This latte is perfect for the fall season, but it's also delicious year-round! Cinnamon is a warming spice and during winter months we like to add a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper. The oat milk combines with a hint of brown sugar and a pinch of cinnamon (~ 1/2 tsp) to create a smooth, creamy cup of goodness. Froth the latte to make sure that cinnamon dissolves perfectly. In the end use a dash of cayenne and a pinch of Celtic sea salt for that extra something something. If you don't like a strong taste of cinnamon, you can also reduce the amount of this ingredient to just 1/4 tsp.
3. Indulge and Savor with Salty Caramel Oatmilk Latte
If you're looking for a healthier alternative to coffee, try making an iced caramel Oatmilk latte. This is a deliciously refreshing drink that can be made with just four ingredients.
To make this latte, simply heat the oat milk with 1/4tsp of caramel extract and 1/8tbs of vanilla powder or extract together, then stir in the hot espresso or, for those who try to avoid caffeine, you can add carob powder (2 tbsp). It's a very simple recipe that you can make in minutes. Spoil yourself with jitters-free caramel latte.
You can froth the oat milk with your electric frother or use a hand mixer. Either method will create a frothy drink that's creamy and delicious.
Tip: For a stronger caramel flavor to come through we recommend adding sea salt to compliment the caramel flavor.
This latte is best when made with high-quality oat milk. Califia Farms, Oatly & Elmhurst brands both produce excellent oat milks that will work well in this recipe.
If you want a more authentic Starbucks flavor, pull two shots of espresso with your favorite espresso maker. If you'd like to add a little sweetness to the oat milk, you can also stir in maple syrup or brown sugar into the coffee and then add the oat milk. If you prefer a more mild taste, you can also just use plain brewed coffee instead.
4. Go Classic with Oatmilk Matcha Latte
If you’re looking for a coffee substitute that tastes delicious, is dairy-free and ready in under 5 minutes, look no further! This creamy Oat milk matcha latte is a jitters-free antioxidant-packed drink.
You can make this latte with soy, coconut or almond milk if you like but we prefer oat groats for the best texture and consistency. The oat groats are unprocessed and less likely to become slimy in the "milking" process, making them perfect for blending into matcha lattes!
We suggest making the latte with matcha powder that doesn't lean towards a bitter or too earthy flavor profile. If you use a matcha that slightly bitter, you may want to add more maple syrup for a sweeter flavor to offset the bitter notes.
To make a hot matcha latte, whisk together the matcha powder and water. Once the matcha is fully dissolved and no clumps remain, stir in the maple syrup. Pour the mixture into a mug, add ice and top with warmed up oat milk.
5. Go Crazy for Gingerbread Oatmilk latte
The most unique flavor of latte is the gingerbread spice. We love it especially during the holiday season. This latte requires a 10 minutes prep but it’s worth it! The key to make this latte is the gingerbread spice that we can make at home. For example, Pumpkin spice latte requires more cinnamon, whereas gingerbread spice has equal proportions of cinnamon, ginger and allspice.
We like using fresh ginger instead of the powder for the spiciest taste. Peel ginger skin and grate one square inch of ginger. To make this a tasty oat milk gingerbread latte add a dash of vanilla and 1 tbsp of molasses to turn it into a delight!
Mix the spices, molasses, vanilla and ground ginger and add 1/4 cups of hot oat milk. Froth the mixture for a barista-style creamiest latte. Add more hot oat milk to fill the cup. Now enjoy the dessert-like latte!
