Egg Nog Latte: a delicious, hot and creamy homemade version! No espresso machine needed!!

You guys. I don’t know about you, but this was one recipe testing I had to repeat numerous times. Not that I changed anything from the first time I tested…it just needed several tests. To make sure I got it right, haha!

Actually, in all seriousness, this drink turned out perfect.

Egg Nog Latte’s are one of my favorite holiday drinks. From Starbucks.

I know I say I don’t go to Starbuck’s very often, and really I don’t. If I did, I’d spend a fortune, because my teens think they get to order something too! But, when I’m out Christmas shopping, and Egg Nog Latte is my thang. 

Egg Nog Latte: a delicious, hot and creamy homemade version! No espresso machine needed!!

It’s what I equate to holiday shopping. Maybe it’s the delicious drink. Maybe it’s the red cup. Either way, I order it every holiday season.

Until now. My Starbuck’s isn’t carrying my favorite drink!! What???

Instead of letting devastation ensue (#firstworldproblems), I went to my kitchen to whip up my own Egg Nog Latte.

Take THAT Starbucks. Cause guess what? Mine is better than yours (do you hear me singing and taunting as I say that?? Cause I am).

And the best part? You don’t need a special espresso maker to do this recipe. You’re welcome.

I know you’re probably wondering, “how do you get the frothy, steamy milk??”

Well. The microwave. And my friend, the Mason jar. Works like a charm. Just need to “shake it up.” (again, do you hear me singing??)

Wait. I have one more best part. Is that okay?


I’ve teamed up with the American Dairy Association again this holiday season! ADA Mideast launched it’s first nationwide program to deliver gallons of milk to hungry families who need it most!

For every “like,” share or comment on designated recipe photos on the ADA Mideast Facebook page from Giving Tuesday (Dec. 2) through Dec. 12, ADA Mideast will donate $1 to the Great American Milk Drive (GAMD), which is run through Feeding America. Then, the country’s dairy farmers and milk companies will match the total donation, doubling the gallons of gifts!


I’ve been so blessed to get to know the ADA Mideast people. They truly are good hearted people, and the relationships they have built with local farmers is priceless. Last year I had the opportunity to go visit a few farms and learn the art of cheese making. I went from being this city girl, to a farm loving girl in one day. I loved everything about the trip, including feeding the baby calves. But I also enjoyed learning about where our milk comes from and safety measures in place!

  1. Thanks for sharing a “high end coffee drink” recipe that I don’t need an expresso machine for! I don’t have one and that’s not gonna change anytime soon =) This looks simple, cheap to make and so much nicer than waiting in that darn Starbucks line for 20 minutes.

  2. I just love all your coffee drinks. Why spend a ton at a high end coffee shop when I can come to here and get great recipes. Pinning!

  3. Oh this is perfect! Starbucks in my area isn’t getting the eggnog latte and I really want to try it!

  4. Mmm this could be dangerous for me to make in my own home… I may need to test the recipe several times, too 🙂

  5. I love this program to provide milk to hungry families. I’ll definitely be hopping over to “like” those photos. And this latte…I could happily sip on one of these everyday.

  6. It’s freezing here today! This will be the perfect way to warm up this afternoon.

  7. Love this – eggnog lattes are my fav too! And what a great company – I love that they give back!

  8. Sunshine

    Do you think this will work with the Soy version off Egg Nog and Soy Milk?

  9. Love this gift of milk giving. AND this latte!

  10. I’ve never ordered an Eggnog latte from Starbucks! But now that you say it’s your thing I may just have to. Funny, I have a carton of nog I was about to throw away b/c I baked with it for the season, mission accomplished 🙂 But I should make your drink. LOVE the frothy nuke tip!!!

  11. I can definitely see myself making this eggnog latte on Christmas eve this year and devouring rugged up in front of the fire place. Thanks for sharing the delicious recipe!

  12. You had me at the picture!! This looks amazing and look how cute you look feeding the calves. 🙂 How fun and a great cause! PS My kids always think the get something at starbucks too. So now I go when they are in school, hehe. Don’t tell them. 🙂

  17. Would you believe I don’t even know what a Starbucks eggnog latte tastes like? And I. Love. Eggnog. (We just don’t get it overseas unless we go nuts and make it ourselves.) So now I’ll just have to take your word (and recipe) for it!

  18. I also never go to starbucks because I want to put my kids through colllege 😉
    BUT, Now I can totally just get my fix at home. BOO ya!

  28. Whoa whoa whoa, back up for a second… No eggnog lattes this year??? I haven’t been to Starbucks in ages (for the same reason, I spend WAY too much every time I walk in! all those cute mugs for photo props!), but I had no idea they weren’t selling it this year. Boo! Thank goodness you came up with an exact copycat to save the day! 🙂

  29. The Eggnog Latte’s are my favorite, but buying them too much is bad for my wallet! Yay for fancy coffee house drinks at home in our jammies! Love this!

    Hi, I am a Brit so not familiar with eggnog.
    My daughter loves Starbucks Eggnog lattes and bemoans the fact that they are only available around Christmas so I would like to surprise her (I have mastered the Toffee Nut latte, another of her favourites).
    Do you make your own eggnog (recipe, please) or can you recommend commercially available make? We have something called Warninks Advocaat in the UK, do you know if this is the same stuff?
