Starbucks Caramel Macchiato Blended - Tastes Great Cold or Hot

Total Time

A rich Starbucks espresso and the rich buttery taste of caramel & creamy milk what could be better. I only use Starbucks original whole bean espresso and grind it to a fine espresso powder and brew it up in my espresso machine. I use the double shot holder on my espresso machine and brew a double shot of espresso. (1 shot is 1 oz- this recipe calls for 2 full ounces of Starbucks espresso). I use a single serve blender for a Blended Caramel Macchiato, if you want a hot beverage just use steamed milk.

I am perhaps the biggest Caramel Macchiato lover in the world. I recently moved to a small town from the big city and was so missing Starbucks - because of this drink! SO glad I found your recipe! I actually couldn't get my espresso machine to work with me (first time to try it out, :)) so I brewed Starbucks espresso double strength in my coffee maker. I used about 3/4 cup of that coffee to make this drink, and omitted the half and half and whipped cream. I also used sugar free vanilla syrup. This recipe will help me out a TON! Thank you so much for sharing it!

I made this for hubby and he really enjoyed it. I didn't have the vanilla syrup, so I added in some vanilla extract, more ice cream, and then more caramel topping (4 T. overall) I also used half and half for the whole milk part, too. Thank you for the great recipe! Now we can make them at home!

I don't know what Starbucks' caramel macchiato tastes like, but this is AWESOME! I used my own "espresso" because my husband doesn't like Starbucks coffee. This is a keeper. Thanks for sharing. :)
