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. 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?

  2. I love the idea of using a Mason jar to make this frothy! You are a GENIUS. Totally making a latte at home this weekend vs. going to Starbucks. Also, having you on that ADA trip was so much fun!

  3. And now I need a latte STAT! Love your homemade version of a holiday favorite. Thanks for feeding my coffee addiction, Aimee! Pinned!

  4. 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!

  5. 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! 🙂

    1. Some areas of the country have them….just not my Starbucks here in IL. Bummer. Actually it’s a good thing! Now I learned how to make them at home. Cheaper. Oh wait, bad thing. Now I make them at home, often! Must use low fat, haha!!

      1. Oh my gosh, YES. Copycats can be so dangerous!! Especially those coffee drinks that disappear way too quickly… 😉
