Homemade Iced Caramel Coffee

the secret ingredient to the best iced caramel coffee! Get the recipe on www.mlovesm.com

One of my favorite treats is going to the coffee shop and getting a special iced caramel coffee. It was something I absolutely craved during my pregnancy and on a few occasions I’m guilty of ordering that massive size option that makes you wonder, “Who the heck even orders that?!” This girl. This girl right here. Since it’s been a little challenging to get out of the house these days I decided to recreate my favorite drink at home. I’ve done this before even though the drink is never quite the same, but I just found a trick that makes it taste even better. This is such a genius tip that you’ll wonder why all the coffee shops aren’t doing it!

So the one thing that is going to totally amp up your iced caramel coffee game is CHOCOLATE MILK. Yes, I said chocolate milk! This is going to be your best kept secret that will have everyone thinking your iced coffees beat anyone else’s. I got this fairlife chocolate milk and let me just say it’s even better than the kind you had as a kid. Plus, it’s better for you. It contains half the sugars of ordinary regular milk and 50% more protein, although you would never know it. This chocolate milk is amazing! It’s incredibly rich and creamy! So even though you’re sweetening the drink up with caramel, you can feel a little better about it. And, because there’s so much protein, it’s basically health food. Right?!

makes 1

1 shot of espresso {or two depending on your mood!}
1 Tablespoon caramel
8 oz chocolate milk {I used this one from fairlife that is beyond delish!}
optional: whipped cream and extra caramel to drizzle on top

Melt the caramel in the shot of espresso and pour into a glass. Fill with chocolate milk and add ice. Top with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce. Enjoy!

This is one of my favorite drinks to make at home and I know you’ll love it too!

    That looks incredibly delicious. However, I’m not a fan of the cold drinks like this. I’d prefer it hot. Yum 🙂

    • You could make it hot too!! That would be so yummy!

    You’re so funny. My downfall during my second pregnancy was boba milk tea and I would get the large size too. This looks yummy and definitely counts as health food with all the protein and calcium 😉

    • right?! That’s what I think too 🙂 And boba is soo yummy!!
