An Easy and Fun Recipe

The main ingredients used in this recipe are caramel syrup, milk, and espresso. There are a few things you should keep in mind regarding these ingredients.

When it comes to caramel syrup, you can use any caramel syrup you want. Even if you want to add a homemade caramel syrup, you can still do that. However, if you want a complete Starbucks taste, then you should use Starbucks caramel syrup. You can easily find a Starbucks caramel syrup at Walmart or Target. Alternatively, you can also buy it from Amazon or Starbuck’s shop. Their caramel syrup is not only delicious but it is also affordable.

This is an espresso-based recipe and you can make espresso as per you want. There are no hard and fast rules. You can use an espresso machine or you can also use your typical coffee pot.

As far as milk is concerned, it also depends on your choice. If you want to use whole milk, you can use that and if you want to use nonfat milk, you can also use that. It will not change the texture of your latte. However, if you prefer using non-dairy milk then it might not froth as good as other types of milk.

Making a homemade caramel latte is very simple. All you need to do is froth the milk first. You can froth it using a handheld milk frother. However, if you don’t have a milk frother then you can also froth it by whisking it. While you’re frothing the milk, you just mix the espresso and caramel syrup in a cup. Then you add the milk and drizzle the caramel over it.
