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


  1. Make your single cup of coffee. (I use my Keurig)
  2. Add 1 cup of cold milk to your coffee.
  3. Add 1 packet of sweet-n-low.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
