This Dulce de Leche Latte recipe is so sweet and simple and perfect for slow, lazy mornings.
Remember that Dulce de Leche recipe I posted a few weeks ago? Before that recipe could hit the site, I tested a ton of batches to make sure it worked perfectly, so I’ve had a LOT of dulce de leche around my house the last few months.
This happens with some recipes, where I have heaps of leftovers from testing, and it always results in me trying to find creative ways to use them up. (This is why after posting my faaaaaav Carnitas, there are now approximately 800 carnitas recipes on Baking Mischief.)
For the leftover dulce de leche, it meant that I drizzled it on, in, and over eeeeeverything, and came up with some *pretty* good combos. Today I’m sharing one of my favorites, a Dulce de Leche Latte.
Quick and Easy Dulce de Leche Recipe
This recipe is so sweet and simple. If you have a jar of dulce de leche in your fridge, it will take you all of 5 minutes to put together. You’ll just need strong coffee, some milk, a spoonful of dulce de leche, and a little sugar.
The finished product is smooth and creamy, especially if you add a little splash of whipping cream, and perfect for sipping on a slow, lazy morning.
And if you don’t have dulce de leche in your fridge, go make a batch! It takes a little while to make, but only requires one ingredient and couldn’t be easier.
How to Make a Dulce de Leche Latte
1. First, heat milk, dulce de leche, and sugar together in a small sauce pan or butter warmer (I love these things), and whisk until foamy.
2. Then pour mixture into hot, strong coffee.
3. Top with whipped cream, more dulce de leche, and sip away.

Dulce de Leche Latte Recipe Notes
- This recipe makes a little over 1 cup of coffee, enough to fill one 8-ounce mug. If you want to fill an over-sized mug, double the recipe.
- If you like your lattes extra frothy, I highly recommend buying a cheap milk frother (this is the one I have). They work quite well and are very fun to use.
- If you have caramel on hand, you can substitute it for the dulce de leche.
