How to Make a Copycat Gingerbread Latte – Sugar Free/Dairy Free

by Anjolie Flores | Dec 7, 2022 | Diet, Recipes

Gingerbread Latte - Sugar Free

Gingerbread is one of my favorite holiday treats! The sweet spices whether in cookie or drink form are always a perfect Christmas-time flavor. Starbucks got on the gingerbread train years ago, but have not brought the gingerbread latte back since 2018. However, I can offer you something even better – and cheaper! This Copycat Gingerbread lattesugar-free and dairy-free – is perfect to satisfy your craving with out sacrificing your budget or health.

Why Choose this Alternative?

Well for one, an original Gingerbread Latte from Starbucks is has 330 calories, 38g sugar, 14g fat – in a Grande (16 oz)! That much sugar in one drink is disastrous for your health – more so than you might think. Consuming this much sugar regularly can lead to weight gain, acne, type 2 diabetes, and can increase your risk of several serious medical conditions – including cancer. Yikes! Since it is way better to be safe than sorry, I highly recommend this alternative recipe you can make at home.

Gingerbread Latte (Starbucks Copycat!)

This homemade gingerbread latte is a copycat version of the famous Starbucks drink – minus the dairy and crazy amount of sugar! Perfect on its own or over ice for an iced beverage.

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
