Holiday Lattes in the Crockpot 4 Crockpot Recipes for Your Favorite Lattes Eggnog Pumpkin Spice Peppermint Mocha and Gingerbread keeperofthehome.org [1]

This post was originally published in December 2012–but we thought you would love a reminder about these delicious holiday lattes you can make in your crock pot

By Rachel [2], Contributing Writer

There is just something about the holidays that seems to make people want to warm up to a piping hot latte. Did you know you can actually make holiday lattes in the crock pot?!

My personal latte favorites are gingerbread, eggnog, peppermint mocha and pumpkin spice.

These really are very simple to make at home, and you’ll know your delicious hot beverage is made with real ingredients.

The basic ingredients for all of these crock pot lattes are the same:

  • coffee (or you can use green tea)
  • milk (dairy, coconut, almond, etc.)
  • sweetener (stevia, honey, maple syrup, raw sugar, etc.)
Just add spices to give them each their individual flair!

Check out these holiday lattes recipes:

The directions are the same for all of them and are found at the end of the recipes. You can use more or less of the sweetener or spices depending on your taste.

Optional for all lattes: a cinnamon stick and a sweet treat

Also, if you want to make these favorites fast, you can always warm them in a pot on the stove, or if you are really fancy, you could use an espresso machine.

How do you make these holiday lattes in the crock pot? Here are 4 simple steps:

  1. Gather ingredients and plug in your crock pot.
  2. Put all ingredients into the crock pot; mix well.
  3. Cook on high for 1 hour or low for 2 hours; be sure to check & stir from time to time.
  4. Enjoy these holiday favorites!

When using the crock pot, don’t let this brew all day. Use within 30 minutes or so of “cooking.” Store leftovers in a glass container with an airtight lid in the refrigerator.
