Homemade Starbucks Eggnog Latte

I LOVE eggnog. When I tried this homemade Starbucks eggnog latte I almost jumped up and down. You can use homemade eggnog with this recipe. What better way to celebrate Christmas than by making homemade Starbucks eggnog latte?

  • 4 ounces boiling water
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • ¼ cup milk (use skim or 2%)
  • ½ cup eggnog
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tablespoon light brown sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg, or to taste, plus more for dusting
  • whipped cream, optional
  1. Stir the espresso powder into the hot water and set aside.
  2. In a glass measuring cup combine milk, eggnog, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; whisk/stir until thoroughly combined.
  3. Place in Microwave and cook for 1 minute and 30 seconds, or until the milk starts to froth up.
  4. Remove from Microwave and stir/whisk again.
  5. Place in Microwave for an additional 30 seconds, or until the milk begins to froth up again.
  6. Remove and, while stirring the eggnog-mixture, slowly pour the coffee into the eggnog-.mixture.
  7. Top with whipped cream and dust with nutmeg.
  8. Serve.
