Copycat Starbucks Eggnog Latte

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes

  • Yield: 16-ounce drink 1x


Want to make a Starbucks eggnog latte at home this Christmas?  This easy recipe makes a healthy and delicious version of this festive coffee drink.  It’s vegan friendly, and can be made iced or hot.


  • 1 shot espresso (2 tablespoons; 30 ml)
  • ½ cup whole milk (120 ml)
  • ½ cup T.G. Lee eggnog (120 ml)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg, for garnish


  1. Brew the espresso with your preferred method, preferably with the Christmas Blend from Starbucks for the closest flavor to the original. I used a moka pot for this step.
  2. Pour the milk and eggnog into a large glass and microwave it for about a minute on high. Use a milk frother to froth the milk mixture until it has at least doubled in volume and thickened.
  3. Pour a shot of espresso into a 16-ounce glass or mug, then slowly pour the frothed milk on top.
  4. Sprinkle the nutmeg on top of the foamed milk and enjoy right away.


  • Heat the milk mixture until it reaches 150-155 F before frothing.
  • A moka pot or French press coffee are good alternatives if you don't have an espresso machine.
  • If you don't have a milk frother, you can grab this one online or just shake the milk in a mason jar.
  • Use freshly grated nutmeg for the very best taste.
