For a lighter option, try Jordan's Skinny Syrups Keto Cinnamon Dolce Syrup.  It's made with MCT oil and has 0 calories per serving.

Did Starbucks Discontinue the Cinnamon Dolce?

Starbucks says they haven't discontinued cinnamon dolce latte syrup.  However, it is hard to find due to supply chain issues.  

It should be coming back when (if?) things get back to normal.  In the meantime, try this recipe for Starbucks cinnamon dolce latte.

Is Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Good?

Although this drink isn't the most popular drink on the menu, the cinnamon dolce is very good.  It's sweet without being overly sweet.  It's a little lower in calories and sugars than other drinks.

It has a mild flavor of brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.  This Starbucks cinnamon dolce latte recipe is good drink for all year, especially in summer in an iced coffee.

What is Cinnamon Dolce Syrup Made Of?

The real syrup has preservatives and natural flavors.  We don't know what those natural flavors are.  They could be real vanilla and real cinnamon, or they could be the legs from bugs.  

This copycat cinnamon dolce syrup is made of white sugar, brown sugar, water, real vanilla extract, and cinnamon.

What is in a Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte?

When you learn how to make Starbucks cinnamon dolce latte, you might be surprised that it only has a few ingredients. 

You'll need freshly brewed coffee, cinnamon dolce latte syrup, and whipped cream.  

What is in Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Topping?

For a true Starbucks cinnamon dolce latte recipe, then you'll want to add the topping.  The topping is made with cinnamon, sugar, salt, and butter extracts.  

The topping goes on top of whipped cream after the drink is made.

I don't make my own topping.  I just use cinnamon sugar or skip it completely.  

How to Make a Vegan Cinnamon Dolce Latte

To make a vegan cinnamon dolce latte recipe, simply swap the milk for oat milk or almond milk.  Personally, I like oat milk.  But use your favorite non dairy milk.

Learn how to make homemade almond milk.

You can also use coconut whipped cream on top.  Aldi has a really good canned coconut whipped cream.

What is a Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte?

You can easily make this a skinny recipe for Starbucks cinnamon dolce latte.  When you make the simple syrup, simply use a low calorie sweetener.

I recommend using monk fruit or powdered stevia.  If you use monk fruit, you can replace the white sugar and brown sugar with monk fruit, but you will sacrifice some of the flavor from the brown sugar.

You can also use stevia powder to make this Starbucks cinnamon dolce latte recipe.  If you opt for stevia powder, use 2 tablespoons plus 2.5 teaspoons powdered stevia per cup of water.  You can add a dash of salt to cut the bitterness.

Note: This cinnamon dolce syrup recipe calls for one cup of water and two kinds of sugar.  If you substitute for stevia powder, do not use brown sugar because it will be far too sweet.  

For a reduced sugar copycat cinnamon dolce syrup, use Splenda Brown Sugar Blend.  This is a blend of brown sugar and Splenda, so it has half of the calories as brown sugar does.  

I would substitute all of the sugar for this blend.  This will reduce the sugar and calories by half.

You can also use Swerve Brown as a brown sugar replacement.  It has zero calories and is keto friendly.
