Iced Brown “Sugar” Cinnamon Oatmilk Latte


Iced Brown “Sugar” Cinnamon Oatmilk Latte

So anybody that knows me knows I ❤️ going to get ☕️There is just something about going and treating myself that I really enjoy-it’s a form of self care for me. 💆🏻‍♀️ But on that note, it’s a very expensive form of self care 😂 if you go frequently and your drink is over $5!

I have become obsessed with @starbucks iced brown sugar oatmilk shaken espresso. It’s dairy free, a little sweet (I order it with less syrup), and the perfect pick me up! However, its pricey ($5.45 for a grande) and has 13g of sugar in it so I wanted to see if I could come up with a lighter at home version and cut my Starbucks trips back to maybe a few times a week instead of...well, never mind, you get the idea. 😂 ⁣

Here’s what you’ll need for the recipe:⁣

🔹 instant coffee, instant espresso, or very strong brewed coffee or coffee concentrate. (I used instant coffee) ⁣

🔹 Creamy oatmilk (I used @chobani brand) ⁣

🔹 @swervesweetie brown sugar ⁣

🔹 Cinnamon⁣

🔹 Ice⁣

🔹 Mason jar or shaker⁣

DIRECTIONS:⁣

✅ First you will need to make a simple syrup with the brown sugar. I chose to use swerve brown sugar because it’s zero calorie and is made with erythritol-it was easy to find at Kroger but you could use regular brown sugar or could try Splenda brown sugar blend-this will change the calories and macros of the drink. To make the simple syrup you will need 2 parts almost boiling water to 1 part brown “sugar”. I used 1/2 cup water 1/4 cup swerve packed brown “sugar”. That will make enough for a few drinks. Mix together in a mason jar and place in the fridge. ⁣

✅ Next you’ll need to brew or make your strong coffee or espresso. You can do whatever you want but I used instant coffee and mixed hot water to make a very concentrated coffee solution and then chilled. You want about 3-4.5oz coffee or espresso. If you use regular cold brew you will want to add more coffee but it will change the texture of the drink slightly. ⁣⁣

Now let’s make the drank 🙌⁣

✅ fill a mason jar or shaker half way with crushed ice.⁣

✅ Add 2T simple syrup and the coffee/espresso to that jar. Place lid on and shake vigorously to combine.⁣

✅ Add a few shakes of cinnamon and 1/2 cup oat milk to the top. Swirl or stir to combine.

✅ Enjoy
