I know it’s been a few weeks since I wrote a blog post. Although the temperatures may be hovering around three digit heat, everything is changing as we approach fall. I dog sat for the first time in my life and just started a new job. After a quick afternoon nap, I’m back in the kitchen cooking up new recipes to share with you.
Today’s post is inspired by Starbucks. Last week, the fall specialty drinks reappeared on the menu. My personal favorite is Salted Caramel Mocha but I also love Pumpkin Spice Latte. For those of you who love the winter holiday drinks, today’s copy cat recipe is for you. Although this isn’t one of my usuals, it is one of my sister’s favorites. I think it taste pretty close to the Starbucks drink.
Place caramel sauce in cup. Add vanilla syrup. Top with coffee and milk. Garnish with whipped cream and toffee bits.
- I used half a shot glass of sugar free French vanilla syrup (1 oz.)
- I don’t have an espresso maker so I made the Starbuck Blonde K-cup with 6 oz. of water.
- I used 10 oz. of steamed skim milk.
- I make froth from skim milk and skipped the whipped cream, toffee bits, and extra caramel sauce.
