  • Optionally, if you have a milk frother, you can use it to make the latte more foamy.
  • Pour into a cup, and serve.



  • Use any milk that you like, such as skim milk, oat milk or soy milk.
  • Optionally, top the latte with whipped cream and gingerbread men.
  • If you want the latte to keep warm for longer, you can pour it into a thermos or a flask suitable for warm beverages.
  • Keep an eye on the milk as it heats up, as it can boil over very quickly.
