Starbucks copycat cinnamon dolce latte recipe

A grande-sized Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte from Starbucks contains 44 grams of total (and net) carbs. Their recipe includes steamed 2% milk, cinnamon dolce flavored syrup, sweetened whipped cream, and cinnamon dolce sprinkles.

This recipe takes the original version and reduces the carb content per serving to fit a low-carb diet. Per serving, this drink recipe contains just 4.5 grams of net carbs. If you want to further reduce the carb content, you can omit the homemade whipped cream.

Serve it with treats like these classic macarons or apple cinnamon rolls. This dolce latte also goes well with cookies like lofthouse cookies, Crumbl sugar cookies, or Norwegian berlinerkranser cookies.

Keto cinnamon dolce latte FAQs

Before making this recipe, read over the answers to these commonly asked questions and review the step-by-step instruction photos.

Are there any ingredient substitution options?

  • Powdered Monk Fruit Sweetener: You can use Classic Monk Fruit Sweetener, Golden Monk Fruit Sweetener, erythritol, or Swerve at a 1:1 ratio. If you use any of these granulated sweeteners, I would suggest pulsing it in afood processorto powder it. Liquid stevia or powdered stevia should work here, but because every brand of stevia is quite different, I cannot make suggestions on exactly how much you should use. If you decide to use stevia, especially if it’s pure stevia (no other ingredients), start with a VERY small amount, taste test, and then add more from there.
  • Espresso Powder: Instant coffee should work here, but the intensity of flavor will likely be lessened slightly.

What is monk fruit sweetener? Where can it be purchased?

Lakanto’s monk fruit sweetener is net carb-free, doesn’t spike blood sugar, and can be substituted for sugar at a 1:1 ratio.

I purchase my monk fruit sweetener online from Lakanto’s website and have it delivered. If you want to do this, you can use discount code REALBALANCED at checkout for 20% OFF your Lakanto order.

If you do not want to order online and, instead, purchase monk fruit sweetener in a store, many grocery stores, especially specialty stores and Costco, carry Lakanto monk fruit sweetener products.

How many net carbs per serving does this drink have?

The recipe yields 2 servings, and each serving (with homemade whipped cream included) contains 4.5 grams of net carbs.

If you want to further reduce the carb content, omit the homemade whipped cream topping, which will yield one serving to contain 3.1 grams net carbs (11.2 grams total carbs).

The full nutrition information for this recipe, including calorie content, total carbs, protein, and fat per serving, can be found in the nutrition label located below the recipe instructions within the recipe card.

What diets is this recipe compliant with?

  • Keto and Low-Carb:Containing only 4.5 grams of net carbs per serving, this recipe is low-carb as well as keto-compliant. To decrease carb content even more, omit whipped cream.
  • Nut-Free:This latte is nut-free and is made without almond milk.
  • Coconut-Free:Coconut products are not used in this dolce latte.
  • Primal:This keto cinnamon dolce latte recipe follows primal diet restrictions (soy-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, and grain-free).
  • Egg-Free:Eggs are not used in this recipe.
  • Vegetarian:This recipe does not contain meat or meat products.
  • Refined Sugar-Free:This recipe uses monk fruit sweetener and does not contain refined sugar.

How should the drink be stored?

If you want to make this in advance to drink later, follow the recipe as written, except do not top the drink with whipped cream. Refrigerate the drink and whipped cream separately. Store the drink in a glass jar (like a mason jar) and the whipped cream in an airtight container.

When you’re ready to serve, re-heat the drink in a saucepan on the stovetop before pouring into coffee mugs, or re-heat in coffee mugs in the microwave until warmed throughout and then dollop chilled whipped cream on top.

Recipe Notes:

Powdered Monk Fruit Sweetener Substitution: You can use Classic Monk Fruit Sweetener, Golden Monk Fruit Sweetener, erythritol, or Swerve at a 1:1 ratio. If you use any of these granulated sweeteners, I would suggest pulsing it in a food processor to powder it. Liquid stevia or powdered stevia should work here, but because every brand of stevia is quite different, I cannot make suggestions on exactly how much you should use. If you decide to use stevia, especially if it’s pure stevia (no other ingredients), start with a VERY small amount, taste test, and then add more from there.

Espresso Powder Substitution: Instant coffee should work here, but the intensity of flavor will likely be lessened slightly.

Where You Can Purchase Monk Fruit Sweetener: You can order it online from Lakanto’s website. If you do this, you can use discount code REALBALANCED at checkout for 20% OFF. If you do not want to order online and, instead, purchase monk fruit sweetener in a store, many grocery stores, especially specialty stores and Costco, carry Lakanto monk fruit sweetener products.

Net Carbs: The recipe yields 2 servings, and each serving (with homemade whipped cream included) contains 4.5 grams of net carbs. If you want to further reduce the carb content, omit the homemade whipped cream topping, which will yield one serving to contain 3.1 grams net carbs (11.2 grams total carbs).

    Wouldn’t this be 32 carbs? Monk fruit is 4g per tsp.

      There are 21.2g total carbs (5.1g net) per serving. The recipe yields 2 servings, which is indicated in the recipe card. If you want just 1 serving, half all of the ingredients.

    This looks delicious!!! Do you know what the caffeine content would be? About the same as a Starbucks latte?

      Hi, Jess! Yes, I would venture to say it’s about the same amount of caffeine as a grande latte from Starbucks. You could use decaf espresso for decreased caffeine content!
