Which ingredients are in a Biscoff latte?
The best part about making a Biscoff latte at home is that it can be made with just three main ingredients and optionally a delicious topping:
- Biscoff cookie butter spread
- Espresso coffee
- Whole milk
- Whipped cream
Biscoff is a delicious spread made from ground cookies and has the consistency of peanut butter – but tastes like a cross between chocolate and caramel, making it the perfect add-in for your latte.
You can choose to add one espresso shot or use a doppio instead. I suggest using a doppio espresso if you like a more robust flavor.
You can make this drink even more interesting by adding a serving of whipped cream to it. This will add an even more decant flavor to the latte and will look amazing!
Below, you’ll find more information about frothing milk at home, the best coffee beans to use in this recipe, the number of calories, and a step-by-step guide to making a homemade Biscoff latte!
How do you froth milk at home?
There are a few different ways to froth milk at home, depending on what kind of equipment you have available.
If you have an espresso machine with a steam wand, simply heating up the milk and then using the steam wand to create foam is probably the easiest way:
- Just pour some milk into the espresso machine’s steam wand pitcher, put it under the steam wand, and turn it on.
- Hold the pitcher at an angle so that the foam doesn’t all collect at the top, and once it’s nice and foamy, you’re done!
Another common method is to heat up the milk in a saucepan or microwave until it’s hot (but not boiling), then pour it into a blender and blend it on high speed.
The machine’s blades will create foamy and delicious milk that you can easily pour out into your cup to finish your latte!

What are the best coffee beans to use in this recipe?
There are many different coffee beans that can be used in a latte, but the key is to use a type of bean with a strong flavor to stand out against the other ingredients.
In general, darker roasts tend to have more flavor than lighter roasts. So, if you’re looking for a coffee bean with a strong flavor to use in your latte, try a dark roast.
Light roasted coffee beans, such as a blonde roast, can also be used, creating a blonde latte. The coffee beans look like this:
However, these coffee beans may not have the strength to cut through the sweetness of the Biscoff, resulting in an unbalanced latte.

Now, let’s jump into the recipe so you can give this Biscoff latte a try yourself:
- One shot of espresso
- 3/4 cup (0.18 l) of whole milk
- 2 tbsp (30 grams) of Biscoff cookie butter spread
- Optionally: a serving of whipped cream
- Start by brewing your espresso shot. Make sure to use your favorite coffee brewer for this.
- In the meantime, start steaming your milk. While steaming the milk, make sure to also get a nice foam layer, so you get those fantastic latte layers later on!
- Add the Biscoff cookie butter spread to a tall glass of choice.
- Pour the espresso coffee into the glass and give this a good mix to combine the espresso and Biscoff.
- Slowly pour the steamed milk on top and finish with a layer of milk foam.
- Optionally, you can serve your Biscoff latte with whipped cream. Serve as soon as possible, and enjoy!
If you want a more robust Biscoff latte, you can use two espresso shots instead of one.
