Caramel Latte Recipe

One thing you all must know about me — I LOVE caramel lattes. You won’t catch me drinking anything else at a coffee shop. In the fall and winter, my signature drink is a warm caramel latte. In the spring and summer, it’s an iced caramel latte. More espresso, less depresso, am I right? Now I know what you’re thinking, anything past brewing coffee and adding milk & sugar is next level that you can’t reach. But you’ll actually be surprised how easy it is to make a DIY caramel latte. I personally made it with the comfort of my own Keurig, and here’s how:

Ingredients:

Keurig machine

Milk

Folger’s Classic Roast Ground Coffee (depending on your Keurig machine, you can also purchase Folger’s K-cups)

Sanders Classic Caramel sauce

Milk Frother

Instructions:

  1. In a small/medium saucepan, add a 1/2 cup of milk of your preference along with 2 tablespoons of caramel sauce & let it cook at medium heat.
  2. While your milk is heating up, (if you own a Keurig 2.0) fill the reusable K-cup to the tab with ground coffee & let it brew.
  3. Once you see the caramel starting to disperse into the milk, start mixing it together slowly.
  4. Right before the milk starts to boil, remove it from the stove, and pour it into your milk frother & begin frothing it.
  5. Once it is fully frothed, pour the milk & caramel mixture into the brewed coffee.

Quick Tips:

  • Before heating up the milk and caramel, add a pinch of sea salt to the mix to take your drink to the next level: a salted caramel latte!
  • To top your drink off, add some whipped cream on top with a drizzle of caramel sauce.
  • If you don’t have a milk frother at home, you can use an electric mixer to froth the milk — the frothier the better!

And voila! Hope you enjoy your coffee & let me know how this recipe works out for you guys!
