Healthy and Delicious DIY Latte Recipe (No Barista Needed Here)

Looking for a little extra boost to your daily cup? This DIY latte recipe is a far healthier, cheaper, and yummier alternative to a calorie bomb latte you would pick up at your local Starbucks (we think so anyway).

While it’s probably a tad rich for every single day (if you’re trying to keep your calories and/or fat on the lower side), organic coconut oil, spices, and almond or coconut milk are healthier and far less processed than anything in a store-bought latte.

Skip the coffee shop and save the hassle and dollars, and enjoy this luxurious-tasting treat for a fraction of the time, money, and calories.

So treat yourself, sans guilt, with this healthy and delicious DIY latte recipe!

Here’s Your Delicious, Guilt-Free DIY Latte Recipe:



  • 1 cup of fresh brewed hot coffee
  • 1-2 tsp. of virgin, organic (if possible) cold-pressed coconut oil
  • Splash of your favorite non-dairy milk
  • Your favorite natural sweetener, if you desire
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Sprinkle of ground turmeric, optional




Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender or single-serving bullet blender and blend for approximately 10 seconds (until frothy). Pour into a mug and enjoy!

Savor Every Sip of Your Delicious DIY Latte

The extra calories and fats from the coconut oil give your coffee that extra “oomph,” plus the spices contribute a kick of flavor but also some great-for-you antioxidants and anti-inflammatory perks.

If you’re someone who rushes out the door in the morning and you need your morning coffee to hold you over ’til breakfast, this will do the trick! It’s a bulked up version of “just” a cup of regular coffee – more akin to Bulletproof Coffee, or a pre-breakfast snack, than a simple morning beverage.

We all deserve to feel pampered now and again, and this turns even a regular-old weekday morning into a treat yo’ self moment.

Skip the coffee shop and save the hassle and dollars, and enjoy this luxurious-tasting treat for a fraction of the time, money, and calories. Cheers!
