Iced Caramel Macchiato
Iced cold brew coffee with milk and a touch of vanilla syrup is drizzled with caramel sauce for a cooling drink on warm summer days.
I have a nice espresso machine at home so I am really into dialing in the perfect grind and amount to extract a good espresso shot. With that said, I enjoy the taste of good espresso and coffee. I found that the Gevalia concentrate is delicious and easy to use, especially for making iced espresso based drinks like the Iced Caramel Macchiato that many people love! You can save so much money by making this drink at home using this recipe. We enjoy walking the zoo on summery nights and I always make this drink to take with us. Make sure you pour the coffee concentrate on top, it's what makes it a "macchiato." Enjoy! ****Macchiato means "marked" which means the drink is marked with espresso on top. This recipe is "upside down" as it is made similarly in coffee shops. This Allstar has been compensated for participation in the Allrecipes Allstar Program.
Make your own caramel frappuccino at home with 5 simple ingredients and a blender. Top with whipped cream and caramel!
It all comes together with an unexpected ingredient.
Delicious. Best with cold brew, but makes a really good drink with shots of cooled espresso too. Top with whipped cream for the coffee house experience!
First, thank you for sharing this simply delicious iced coffee recipe. The ingredient measurements were perfect-not too sweet and not too strong- just right!! Nearly a half- century old and I'm learning to enjoy coffee. Looking for a way to ease off Starbucks and keep some $$ in my pocket, I began "studying" how to make coffee here in Allrecipes and YouTube (no joke). Now confident with making hot coffee, I was ready to step out into the cold brew coffee world and have some fun. I admit that I didn't follow the recipe exactly and took the liberty of making a few tweaks such as, 1) cold brewed Breakfast Blend coffee in Bodum French Press (12+hours), 2) drizzled the walls of the cup with caramel and dark chocolate sauce, 3) used non-dairy coconut creme and 4) coffee ice cubes. The coffee ice cubes ensured the last sip is as good as the first!!
Tasted great! My coffee didn't stay on top. Maybe because my milk was one 1% and wasn't thick enough. Needless to say tasted Carmelly and sweet but not too sweet. Enjoyed this drink a lot!

This frothy, blended espresso drink will wake you up and make you happy any time of day. Sweetened with caramel sauce and topped with whipped cream, this is one delicious frozen latte.
Making this vegan, skinny layered caramel macchiato is super easy in the Ninja Coffee Bar® or just heat and froth your milk of choice and pour over a strong cup of coffee.
