Copycat Starbucks Iced Caramel Macchiato

If you are like me, you spend way too much money on coffee. Don’t get me wrong, a really good cup of coffee on a crisp fall day is one of the best feelings, but what about the times when you could use that extra $5 for something else? That’s where this copycat Starbucks Iced Caramel Macchiato comes in. My favorite iced drink is a caramel macchiato but it was starting to really put a dent in my pocket so I did some research and now I have a really good recipe that honestly, I prefer over the big name. Plus, you can adapt it to lower the calories or carbs if you are trying to watch those.

    This looks yummy
    I am so not a chef aor cook aor know anything about substitutions, so my question is this..
    Can I substitute almond milk for regular milk in this recipe? Or is there another lactose free substitution that would work better?

      This is one of my very first copycats that I made and I get so much positive feedback from it. I have tried it with low carb milk as well as plain lactose free milk and it still tastes wonderful. I’ve never tried almond milk but I would think that might give it a slightly different flavor which could still be very good. Please let me know if you try a different type of milk and what you think. Thank you!
