Transfer that delicious toasted cream flavor to your cup of coffee with this Crème Brûlée Latte recipe. It uses just two flavored syrups to make a super tasty latte.
If you’re used to going over to Starbucks for your latte fix, you may have tried their popular Caramel Brulee Latte. They have their own caramel brulee syrup that goes into this drink to give that toasted caramel taste.
But having to buy an expensive latte at Starbucks every time you want this treat is a bit cost prohibitive. We’ve created our own recipe for a creme brulee latte that is just as tasty for less than half the price.
Just like the Pumpkin Spice Latte, we want to be able to make it at home whenever we want. And it’s very easy, so why not!
This latte mixes vanilla syrup with toasted marshmallow syrup to mimic that wonderful creamy taste of a crème brûlée dessert. Mixed with the espresso and steamed milk, this is such a treat.
I personally love the vanilla taste to this, but it’s the caramel topping that really puts it over the edge. You can change it up at bit – and have it tasting more like the Starbuck’s latte – by substituting the vanilla syrup for caramel syrup. Whatever you prefer!
What Syrup to Use
I use Torani syrups. They have so many flavors – including vanilla, caramel, salted caramel, and toasted marshmallow. The toasted marshmallow flavoring is what gives this latte the “brulee”, but if you can’t find it, or don’t want to purchase a whole bottle of it for one drink, you can also mix vanilla with caramel for a similar taste.
Monin and Da Vinci are two other brands of syrup you can use. They also have a toasted marshmallow flavor. And of course, there are many others. Go with whatever is easiest to find.
You can avoid the extra sugar in the syrup by using Jordan’s Skinny Syrups instead. Try this one.
If you’re lucky enough, you may also be able to get your hands on the actual Starbuck’s syrup, which is sold occasionally.
How to Make a Crème Brûlée Latte
Brew the espresso and steam the milk. If you don’t have an espresso machine, you can substitute strongly brewed coffee and heat the milk to near boiling on the stovetop.
Mix the coffee and milk together in a mug. Add the syrups and stir.
Top with whipped cream and a caramel sauce drizzle, plus caramel pieces, if desired.
