Oatmilk Honey Latte

Holy moly, this is good.

Steaming hot, rich, and dark, but also satisfyingly creamy – thank you, oatmilk! – and just barely sweet and warm-spiced… it’s hard for this not to just feel like the drink form of your favorite sweater.

Even with just a handful of ingredients, the flavor is incredibly nuanced because every jar of honey has a little bit of a different thing going on, know what I mean? I could drink these for 100 days in a row and not get tired of them. And I’m currently making good progress towards that goal.

Let’s just take a moment to address the fact that I really don’t share a lot of drink recipes here. In my real life, I hardly feel like I have time to get dinner on the table (just me? anyone?), much less make a beautifully crafted coffee drink or cocktail to complement the moment (unless it’s this Creamy Cashew Coffee). As a general life rule, I go for quick and easy at home (i.e. open a can of sparkling water) and I save my fancy drinks for my dining out experiences. So please know, when I share a drink, it’s because I really, really, really love a drink. (Thinking of you, agua fresca.)

While most drinks require too much energy to make it worthwhile for me, the equation is just right on this one.

The minimal effort involved + the resulting incredibly cozy taste and texture = worth it. More than worth it. Better than worth it.

Ingredients for oatmilk honey latte.

Here’s what you need:

  • Instant coffee – or brew your own, but you only need about 1/2 cup and I like to just make it real fast (and strong) with hot boiling water, plus I use decaf and we don’t often have a pot of decaf sitting around, so, yeah. Instant coffee. You do you.
  • Oatmilk – thickness, taste, and frothing quality varies by brand; I like Oatly, Chobani, and Forager.
  • Honey – usually local is best for finding one with a good flavor, but I recently bought some Wholesome! brand honey and was shocked at its unique, rich floral flavor.
  • Cinnamon – optional, but do you love yourself or not?
  • Salt – just a half a pinch.

You heat up your honey, oatmilk, and salt in a jar in the microwave, pop the lid on, and shake it up. Now you pour it over your coffee. And you win the cozy-morning-at-home olympics. The end.

This has been my constant companion this fall – from the office in the late afternoon to the couch on a chilly Saturday morning. It is pure coffee shop level deliciousness at regular-person skill and effort level. Bring on the cozy! ♡

This latte method (shake in a jar) was one that I saw in the September issue of Magnolia Magazine – shaking in a jar to froth your milk?! Totally new concept to me. But flavor-wise, mostly this oatmilk honey latte is influenced by the Starbucks version that I love, love, love.
