No need to pay the high price for an iced caramel macchiato at the coffee shop! Make yourself one in less than 2 minutes anytime your craving strikes!
Living in the countryside has its ups and downs. The list is long but today I only want to focus on coffee shops.
We have a little coffee shop not too far from where I live and lucky for me, their coffee is terrible. It’s ok for once in a while coffee talk with a girlfriend, but I would not have this burning desire to stop every time I drive by it.
The coffee shops in town, that’s another story! With a wide selection of hot or cold drinks, it’s really hard to resist the temptation.
I used to go into town once, rarely twice, a week and grabbing a coffee wasn’t breaking the bank.
Then I started to go twice a week for Tiffany’s gymnastics practice and one time for swim class, and you guessed it, I was getting three drinks a week from the coffee shop.
And …. starting next week she’ll practice three times a week, plus one evening for the swim and just like that, in less than 6 months, I switched from 4 drinks a month to 4 expensive coffees a week.
I knew I had to make a change, or my coffee guilty pleasure will make a dent in my wallet.
Iced caramel macchiato is one of my favorite coffee drinks. I just love how macchiatos look with the separation of milk and espresso. I guess that’s why Italian call it stained coffee although if you ask me, it’s more like stained milk.
Anyhow, lucky for me, and for you, making iced caramel macchiato at home is really easy and way cheaper!!
Before I tell you how to do it, I have to warn you. Once you find out how easy this is to make, you’ll reconsider paying $5 at the coffee shop.
Below is the way I like my iced caramel macchiato. You may want to practice to find out how you like yours. Maybe make it stronger and add more coffee, maybe sweeter and add more caramel. Or maybe you like it with cold milk. Practice and taste test. Soon your iced caramel macchiato will be tailored to your liking.
