Iced Brown Sugar Caramel Latte - Blog-1

Funny story for you. During my college days, someone introduced me to the idea of coffee and brown sugar. And it was the most simple yet delicious thing. I went crazy for it! I was so obsessed with the coffee/brown sugar/creamer thing, I’d make mini pots of it, and drink so much that I couldn’t sleep at night. Let’s just say, I don’t do that anymore. HA! But, that idea brought this slightly sweet and creamy latte to life.

I made this latte with our Nespresso machine, as I do with all my coffee. However, if all you have is coffee grounds, no fear, just adjust the milk and brown sugar to your liking.

And for those that do own a Nespresso machine, I’ve listed a number of different pod options below. You can’t go wrong with any of them.

Tips For the Perfect Iced Brown Sugar Caramel Latte: 

  • Nespresso Pods – Either of these will work in this latte. I’ve tried them all and love them. Caramel Crème Brûlée, Ristretto Italiano, or Firenze Arpeggio. However, if you do have a different coffee machine, just be sure to use two shots for this recipe.
  • Milk – I use The Original Oatly Oat Milk. It is free of dairy, nuts and gluten. It is also 100% vegan. With all of that, it is still super creamy and delicious as well.
  • Caramel Sauce – Store bought or homemade is great. Here is my 5-Ingredient Vegan Caramel Sauce if you want to give it a try. It is so good!
  • Brown Sugar – It’s fine to use light or dark sugar here. But please try the brown sugar in this latte. It is fabulous!

Ingredients

  • 2 pods Firenze Arpeggio, equivalent to 3 ounces (linked below)
  • 3/4 cup The Original Oatly Oat Milk, or milk of choice
  • 1 heaping tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 5-Ingredient Vegan Caramel Sauce (linked below), or Dairy-Free Store Bought Caramel Sauce, for drizzling

Instructions

  • Once espresso is brewed, add the brown sugar and stir to dissolve.
  • Top an ice-filled glass with milk and Nespresso and give it a light stir. 
  • Drizzle with caramel sauce and a dollop of whipped cream.

Notes

  • Nespresso Pods: This recipe requires 2 pods per person. However, if you have a different coffee machine, just be sure to use two shots for this recipe. 
  • Brown Sugar: If you want it a bit sweeter, add up to another 1/2 tsp.
  • Caramel Sauce: I love to drizzle the syrup on top, stir it in, and then drizzle a bit more. That way, you get some syrup in every sip.

  1. Even though I’m not a coffee drinker this looks and sounds yummy! Knowing my taste for sugar, I’d probably quadruple the amount you suggest!!!
