I’m on my second cup of Vegan Cinnamon Roll Coffee with Homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon Coffee Syrup. It’s a simple Starbucks copycat cinnamon dolce latte that you’ll find yourself drinking all year long. If you aren’t a coffee fan, you can use it in tea or on vegan ice cream.
The flavor of this wonderful drink with my Starbucks copycat syrup reminds me of the sweet cinnamon coffee I had when we visited Mexico a few years ago, and it’s just as delicious.
What is cinnamon dolce coffee syrup?
Cinnamon dolce latte syrup is a homemade cinnamon syrup that’s sweet, spiced coffee syrup that has been popularized by Starbucks. It and other flavored syrup can be added to either hot or cold coffee or tea. It’s great on vegan vanilla ice cream too.
It has the flavors of cinnamon and dark brown sugar, so it tastes a lot like a cinnamon roll.
How to Make a Cinnamon Dolce Latte
Starbucks cinnamon dolce drink can be ordered either hot or cold and typically combines espresso roast coffee, cinnamon dolce syrup, and your choice of plant-based milk. My favorite is soy milk.
The drink can be topped with whipped cream and Cinnamon Dolce topping, but skip both of those to order the drink vegan! Just ask for a sprinkle of delicious cinnamon instead.
It’s great to make this delicious Starbucks copycat recipe in the comfort of your own home.
I love a Starbucks iced cinnamon dolce latte and you can use cold brew concentrate straight from the fridge to make it.
I never drink coffee without creamer, and I used the vanilla Silk® Soy Coffee Creamer in this recipe. If you have a soy allergy, they also make a creamer out of almonds, that you can use instead. (If you avoid soy because of GMOs, Silk® Soy Coffee Creamer is verified non-GMO!)
What’s in Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce syrup?
The ingredients in Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce syrup are sugar, water, natural flavor, citric acid, potassium sorbate. It is vegan.
So this homemade version is so much cleaner and is a fraction of the cost!
What’s in DIY Cinnamon Dolce syrup?
For homemade all you need is 1 cup water, brown sugar or coconut sugar if you’d like to make it refined sugar free, and cinnamon sticks.
How to Make Cinnamon Dolce Syrup
Just add all the ingredients to a small sauce pan, bring to a low boil, then lower the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes.
Leave the cinnamon sticks in until the syrup cools, then take them out and discard. Store in the fridge.
A batch of cinnamon coffee syrup should last you about 2 weeks.
Why don’t I just brew it hot? Because making cold brew at home is easy and it keeps the acids to a minimum, making my stomach much happier. You can drink cold brew cold or heat it up!
You could make this with unflavored coffee since the syrup adds a punch of cinnamon flavor.
