Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe:
Milk – Any type of dairy or dairy-free milk works great in this recipe! Half and half or heavy cream are also an option for a creamier texture.
Maple Syrup – Maple syrup is a must for that warm, sweet flavor.
Brown Sugar (optional) – While the maple syrup in this recipe sweetens the latte pretty well, adding a little bit of brown sugar can make for a sweeter latte with more flavor.
Cinnamon – A touch of cinnamon adds fall flavor to this latte recipe!
How to Make a Maple Pecan Latte
Here’s how to easily make a Maple Pecan Latte:
- Blend the pecan halves and milk together.
- Strain and heat up the pecan milk in a small saucepan (until bubbles begin to form).
- Stir in the maple syrup, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
- Pour the steamed milk into coffee mugs.
- Brew 2 shots of espresso into each latte!
TIP: Use an electric milk frother to froth the milk!
How to Strain Pecan Milk
You don’t have to strain the blended pecans and milk, but it’s definitely recommended if you don’t like the grainy texture of the pecans. To strain the pecan milk, simply use a nut milk bag, cheesecloth, or mesh colander, to press the milk through. This helps keep the flavor of the pecans in the milk!
Using Pecan Milk to Save Time
Save time by using store-bought pecan milk instead! While you will get more of that nutty pecan flavor when you make your own (according to the directions in the recipe below), pre-made pecan milk can still be a great option.
