Starbucks Copycat Cinnamon Dolce Latte

I am a sucker for a GREAT drink recipe! Hot or cold, if it’s jammed with flavour chances are I will enjoy it. Starbucks coffee choices are some of my favourites but to be honest I am very budget conscious  and we simply don’t allow for me to buy a tasty Starbucks treat often. I’ve taken to trying to recreate Starbucks recipe at home which hasn’t been easy but I won’t give up just because one or two fail.

As I make my way through the trial and errors, I’ll be sharing the recipes with you all. Today we worked on a Starbucks Copycat Cinnamon Dolce Latte which is a glorious drink. The key to this recipe is the syrup, it’s a lovely addition to your lattes or even pancakes.  This syrup recipe can easily be stored in a seal-tight container to enjoy for up to a week.

      1. I’m going to try this. It will save me $40 weekly on my Starbucks latte routine. But I do have a question. For how long is the syrup good for.

  1. Your recipe and picture look far more delicious than Starbucks! Plus, I don’t have to leave the flat to have one!!

  2. Mmmmh, this looks really yummy. I made a pumpkin Spice latte mix this year, but it’s gone now. time for something different. I might have to try this.

  3. This sounds really yummy! I have never had one at Starbuck’s to know what it tastes like but I am going to make this home version to try out!

  4. Snowflakes are falling – another night of shovelling…my poor back/shoulders. There is a Starbucks about 15 minutes away – but determined to retreat after cleaning up the white…fortunately have these ingredients in my Christmas pre season stash – this looks so delicious – comfort drink and exactly what will hit the spot tonight. Thanks.

  5. Do you leave the cinnamon stick in, or remove it before you add the sugars? Making this RIGHT NOW since Starbucks will no longer sell their syrups. Thanks!

  6. Finally! A recipe where the cinnamon dissolves. I had made another and it just floats. I kind of improvised because I didn’t use a k cup and the instructions on the espresso says 1 tbsp for a cup. I was a bit confused but nevertheless it came out good! This recipe is bookmarked.
