Lately I’ve been finding myself visiting Starbucks a little too much. I’m not always in the mood for a standard cup of coffee, so I’ll head over to Starbucks and spend about $4 (if not more) per cup of coffee. That gets expensive when you do it multiple times a week.
The other day I decided I was going to avoid the ever-so-tempting Starbucks and attempt to make my own version instead. I mean, imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?
- 1 cup of coffee
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 packet of sweet-n-low
- 1 tablespoon (or more, depending on your personal preference) of caramel
- Make your single cup of coffee. (I use my Keurig)
- Add 1 cup of cold milk to your coffee.
- Add 1 packet of sweet-n-low.
- Add 1 tablespoon (maybe a bit more) of your caramel sauce. HELPFUL TIP: For the caramel, I simply used the generic stuff from the squeeze bottle that you would normally pour over ice cream. The caramel and sweet-n-low are the ingredients that really make this drink nice and sweet.
- Simply pour your drink over ice, and you’re all set!
For some of you, this might even make 1 servings, depending on how much coffee you drink at once. Personally, I save the second serving for later in the day or even the next morning. Just store it in the fridge and you’re good to go.
