Best Vanilla Latte

If this is your first time making our homemade Starbucks vanilla recipe, then you may need to make just a little preparation. However, the good news is that this is something you will need to do from time to time.

The reason for this is that we use vanilla syrup to taste our drink. You can buy in-store syrup, but in our opinion, home-made items taste much better! Also, you will experience real satisfaction in knowing that you made your own.

From there, it’s best to burn the ingredients, blend them, and add one or two touches to get results that look exactly like the true Starbucks Vanilla latte.

More touches? What do we mean?
Weekly recipe

Starbucks is focused on coffee, and as a result, it has some high-tech features like milk steamers and foamers. Now, if you’re like us, it doesn’t always happen that there is a milk steam lying around the house, so we need something else.

We find the best way to get soft and condensed milk, like at Starbucks, to give your milk a whiz in a blender or with a hand mixer when it is heated. Don't have a blender or hand mixer? Don't worry. You will still be able to get hot and airy milk. 

This homemade Starbucks vanilla latte is a great recipe to make and allows you to skip lines in your local line.



    2 cups white sugar

    1 cup of water

    1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
    For Vanilla Latte

    1 small cup of espresso

    1 cup whole milk (or more)

    3-4 teaspoons of vanilla syrup

    Whipped cream


    Vanilla Syrup

    To make the syrup add all the syrup ingredients to a small pan and place over medium heat.

    Stir frequently until the sugar has completely dissolved. As soon as the small bubbles appear and the syrup turns a bright light color, it is ready.
    Pour the syrup into a watertight container. Once cooled, close and store in the refrigerator.

    For Starbucks Vanilla Latte

    Put your milk and espresso in a small pan and place over medium heat. When the milk starts to drip slowly, add your vanilla syrup and reheat.

    Using a blender, mixer, or process described above, add your latte foam mixture.

    Pour the foamy latte into a long glass or mug garnish with a few tablespoons of whipped cream.

    Sit back, relax and enjoy

Tips and tricks

    We love our vanilla syrup so much. It can seem like a daunting task to do so regularly, so let us give you a simple tip.

Cast lots! Our recommended price on this recipe will easily make 8 cups of a delicious copy of Starbucks vanilla latte. Once you have made your syrup, you can keep it covered in the fridge for a long time. Will the Starbucks latte go? Yes, please!

    The key to this recipe (without ingredients) is light and frothy milk. If you do not have a blender or mixer, here is the solution. Prepare the recipe as usual and put it in a flask and shake it well for thirty seconds. Be careful when removing the cover as you will find it can be a little ‘fizz’. You will be amazed at how much foam you can make.

    Do not burn your milk. Milk has a much lower boiling point than water, so you will need to look at it. As soon as the small bubbles start to rise, your milk should be the right temperature to use. If you boil the milk, you will find that the milk that touches the base of the pan will 'stick' and turn brown. A chunk of hot milk? You don’t see that in the original Starbucks recipe, and we certainly don’t want it here!

    As with the original Starbucks vanilla latte recipe, you can use a selection of milk. Thankfully, not everyone likes milk. The result may not be creamy, but it tastes similar.

    Like the real thing from Starbucks, whipped cream can be a perfect choice. We like the difference between temperature and cold, but if you are trying to keep your calories low, feel free to quit.

    Whatever you do, don’t miss the vanilla essence of vanilla essence. It's not the same thing. Vanilla essence is a really strong substance (smells even a little alcoholic) and will not make your drink taste good if used properly.

The conclusion

We love our Starbucks vanilla latte recipe. The good thing is that we always use our vanilla latte syrup in some things.

Great for fruit and ice cream salads. How do you make your milk sweet and foamy?
