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:
Folger’s Classic Roast Ground Coffee (depending on your Keurig machine, you can also purchase Folger’s K-cups)
- 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.
- 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.
- Once you see the caramel starting to disperse into the milk, start mixing it together slowly.
- Right before the milk starts to boil, remove it from the stove, and pour it into your milk frother & begin frothing it.
- Once it is fully frothed, pour the milk & caramel mixture into the brewed coffee.
- 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!
