The Chestnut Praline Latte is the yummiest seasonal Starbucks drink IMO
Starbucks is known for its excellent drinks and high-quality coffee, but it can be fairly pricey to frequent on a regular basis. Making your own versions of your favourite Starbucks drinks allows you to still indulge in their delights at home. You can achieve the flavour of your preferred Starbucks beverages for a tenth of the price with a little bit of work.
Making your own StarBucks at home is not only more affordable, but it also enables you to tailor the beverage to your preferences, whether you prefer it to be stronger or sweeter. You may enjoy the flavour and convenience of a coffee shop without breaking the wallet by preparing your own Starbucks drinks at home.
Make or buy Chestnut Praline syrup
If you’re not in the mood to make your own syrup, you can buy a decadent chestnut praline syrup here.
Alternatively, follow this recipe: https://www.perfectbrew.com/blog/chestnut-praline-syrup-recipe/
You’ll need the following equipment to make this recipe:
- Espresso Machine or Espresso Powder (best if you have a home espresso machine)
- Milk Frother or Steam Wand (I recommend the Zulay Handled Milk Frother as if can be used for hot OR iced lattes)
- Steam or froth your milk to your preferred consistency. If you’re using a cold brew method, be sure to warm the milk in a saucepan on the stove, or in the microwave before adding it to your latte.
- Brew two shots of espresso, or use espresso powder if you prefer that method instead (I’ve found that it’s easier). Pour the espresso into a nice mug or latte glass, then top off with steamed milk.
- Add in the chestnut praline syrup and give a light stir until well combined; note that this syrup is quite sweet so I usually don’t add much more than two tablespoons per serving!
- 8 ounces milk
- 2 shots of espresso
- 2 tablespoons chestnut praline syrup
- Whipped cream

This recipe is like a regular latte, but with the nutty aroma of hazelnut, the sweetness of caramelized sugar and pralines. It’s sweet, rich, creamy—and totally satisfying. And if you have the right equipment, it’s easy to make at home!
