Whisk up some magic in your slow cooker with our keto gingerbread latte recipe!
Do you love the famous Starbucks gingerbread latte holiday drink?
Unfortunately, this popular holiday drink is NOT keto-friendly, so here is a genius way to make a no-sugar-added keto gingerbread latte alternative at home using the slow cooker!
I love Crockpot drinks because it’s so convenient to make a large batch and keep it warm to have your family enjoy at their leisure. The result is a smooth and creamy sweet keto latte with all the warm flavors of a festive gingerbread cookie!
Just whisk the ingredients together, and let the slow cooker do the work!
To keep this keto, I am using almond milk, Swerve brown sugar substitute, and ChocZero’s insanely good sugar-free maple syrup. This, along with all the warm and cozy spices like cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, will make this slow cooker latte something special. Plus, your kitchen will smell amazing!
This is a sweet dessert-like coffee, so, if you prefer less sweet, just dial back the sweetener a bit to taste.
Want to make an individual cup instead of a large batch?
Great news! I’ve also included the ingredients and simple directions to make a single serving for one! It’s just as easy to whisk together a small latte on the stove instead of the slow cooker.

Tips for making the BEST keto slow cooker gingerbread lattes:
- Brewed decaf espresso can be used instead if you’re not wanting the caffeine. I highly recommend sticking with espresso here for a more authentic coffee house taste. You can brew some strong coffee in a pinch, however.
- I made some keto whipped cream by whipping heavy cream with a touch of Swerve using an electric hand mixer, then added a dollop to the top of my latte.
- If you have leftover lattes, save them in a covered container in the fridge. They’re easy to heat up again, just be sure to give the drink a whirl with a hand mixer or handheld coffee frother after reheating.
