Chestnut Praline Latte

When I discovered that Starbucks was coming out with a Chestnut Praline Latte, I decided it was on! Yes, I’m taking on the behemoth of beverages with my healthy version of this festive holiday drink. Mine is made with real chestnuts, coconut milk, and nourishing Dandelion Coffee. According to Starbucks, their Chestnut Praline Latte contains “espresso, steamed milk, and flavors of caramelized chestnuts and spices.”

Homemade Chestnut Praline Latte

However, if you want to take the healthy, homemade route, make my version and have yourself a dairy-free Chestnut Praline Latte.

Dairy-Free Topping for Chestnut Praline Latte

For those wondering about garnishing the drink, it’s a cinch. Just place a can of this full fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight, open it and scoop the creamy goodness off the top.

Low-Carb Chestnut Praline Latte

If you’re following a Keto Diet, you can make this latte without the date. Use a few extra drops of stevia in its place and you will have a very low-carb latte. Even without this change to the recipe, my Chestnut Praline Latte is far lower in sugar than the real thing.

  1. I am loving this hot drink and your pumpkin spice latte recipe as well! I tried this with toasted hazelnuts instead of chestnuts, since I had them in the house, and the result is great. I’m starting to realize your beverage recipes are adding so much to my normally plain beverage life. I’ve always figured since I’m not a Starbucks or packaged drink gal, I’d keep it to the familiar teas. But first the greena colada and kale creamsicle, now the pumpkin smoothies and these lattes! Such treats!! Thank you Elana :).

  2. Ok, so I was dying to make this – but, alas, I didn’t have any chestnuts. My desire to make this completely outweighed that, though, so I substituted 2 tablespoons of almond meal. Viola! Almond Praline Latte! I used my immersion blender for the whole thing and wow – this is amazing. Thanks, Elana!

  3. I love your mini-site “my dandelion” is a flower! i will always appreciate these sweet and harmless plants from now on :) I won’t feel guilty about spreading “stars” across the sky anymore!

  4. This sounds deeevine! & so nutritious too! Are the chestnuts raw?
    I don’t have a viatmix. Will is work in a food processor?Would love to try it! Thanks!

  5. I have made your orange cake for years now and my husband loves it!!! thank you so much!

  6. This is an exciting recipe to me because our new home has 3 large chestnut trees in the back yard … and quite the yield of nuts. I have been thinking of ways to use them. Looking forward to trying out this sexy new drink!
