Iced Caramel Macchiato at Home


I have been on a Starbucks caramel macchiato kick for a while now and since they aren't the most budget friendly thing to be buying on a weekly basis I decided to try my hand at making my own. Which ultimately ended up being slightly healthier [the things I convince myself of...] due to the fact that I keep almond milk in the house instead of regular milk. 

You'll Need :
1] Five ounces of milk [I prefer almond milk]
2] Five ounces of dark blend coffee [or two shots of espresso if you have access to it]
3] Two ounces of simple syrup with vanilla added*
4] Caramel for topping
5] Ice

I let my coffee chill for about half an hour in the fridge and then I began mixing. I poured the simple syrup over my ice for the first layer, I then added in the milk, following that with the coffee. After all the liquids were added I then drizzled caramel sauce over top. 

*For the simple syrup simple boil water and sugar together on the stove once the mixture is boiling I reduce heat and then add in a few drops of vanilla extract.

What is your favorite Starbucks drink? Have you made any at home?

  1. Yes! I love recreating Starbucks drinks at home! Last summer I was obsessed with caramel iced coffee. Luckily Whole Foods carries a caramel flavored syrup—I would just add that to my iced coffee and it was delish! Love your variation here :)
