If you’ve ever wondered how to make a dairy-free latte at home – you’ll wanna save this recipe! I’m sharing three of my favorite healthy latte recipes with you – a classic latte + pumpkin spice latte + peppermint mocha. Plus lots of swaps so you can make even more variations (like honey lavender, gingerbread, and a classic mocha!)

Today we’re whipping up some dairy-free lattes!
The biggest complaint I hear from people going dairy-free is that they think almond milk tastes too watery in their coffee. Or they don’t like the taste of oat milk. Or really just don’t want to add making homemade nut milk to their weekly to-do list. Believe me. Been there. Done that.
Homemade nut milks (like this hazelnut milk recipe from the blog) are the best for lattes. They have a higher fat content because they’re made with more nuts – holding up better mixed with coffee the way regular creamers do. But if you don’t have a homemade style nut milk available for purchase and don’t want to make & strain homemade nut milk – I wanted you to have another option.
When I was recommending my favorite storebought almond milks I realized that the fat content in them wasn’t consistent – so some people were making it and it was coming out too watery, because well… the almond milk brand they used was too watery! This way you just need coconut oil + cashew butter.
This is the latte I whip up almost everyday in my blender – it’s just so versatile and I love being able to mix up the flavors season to season with a few simple swaps. It’s super easy to travel with just these few pantry staple ingredients + a latte whisk and still have a dairy-free option when I’m away from home.
Below each recipe I’ll list some of my favorite storebought swaps in case you just want a pour-n-stir latte option too. And of course – loads of ways you can customize the ingredients to make more than just these 3 latte variations.…
