Although I don’t consider myself a coffee drinker, I’ve been trying to become one. I figure as the mama to four children 10 and under, it’s something I really should add to my resumé. Coffee drinker.
A few weeks ago, I asked one of our favorite Starbucks baristas for a drink recommendation and he made me an Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato. After ordering them almost daily for the past few weeks, I’m not sure if I should despise him or thank him for my newest obsession.
Instead, I decided I should try to make my own copycat version at home.
What is in the Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato?
The drink you’ll find on the Starbucks menu is a combination of espresso, almond milk and cinnamon syrup and finished with caramel and cinnamon. It’s like drinking a cinnamon roll and is down right heavenly.
But seriously, you know I’m not a barista and my at home Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato was going to have to be much more straight forward. And bonus points if I was using ingredients I already keep in my kitchen.
Mission accomplished! I can create my copycat Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato in under five minutes. In fact, I’m betting I could make it under three if I wasn’t attempting to make it while also getting breakfast for aforementioned four children and packing their snacks and lunches for the day as well. Multitasking at it’s finest, my friends.
And this isn’t my first coffee house copycat adventure! My Iced Caramel Mocha Latte is one of my go to warm weather drinks and my no bake Mocha Coconut Frappuccino Pie was inspired by another favorite drink.
I simply take a glass and fill it with ice and almond milk. Then drizzle with caramel and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I put the entire thing under my Nespresso machine and brew espresso over all of it to create the most beautiful – and delicious! – drink to ever come out of my kitchen.
TIP: Don’t have an espresso machine? No problem! Simply substitute some very strong brewed coffee.
How to Make an Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato
 Fill your glass with ice.
 Add almond milk.
TIP: I typically use unsweetened almond milk but if you’d rather have a sweeter drink like the Starbuck’s drink, a vanilla flavored almond milk is delicious!
 Drizzle caramel syrup around the inside of glass and sprinkle cinnamon over the top of the ice.
TIP: You’ll want to use a caramel syrup that you’d typically use for serving over nice cream, NOT one of the flavored syrups you see poured into drinks.
 Pour espresso over the ice.
