Ingredients

Date Syrup* (Optional, but HIGHLY recommended!)

  • ½ cup pitted Medjool dates
  • cup water

Homemade Iced Caramel Macchiato

  • ¼ cup Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • ¼ cup Silk Almond Creamer caramel flavor
  • 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
  • 3 ice cubes
  • ½ cup brewed coffee hot or cold (or 1-2 shots of espresso)

Instructions

  • Combine the dates and water in a high speed blender and purée until completely smooth. I like to transfer it to a condiment bottle, but you can just transfer it to a jar or whatever you have. Place it in the fridge while you prepare the rest of the drink. 
  • Quickly rinse out the blender - no need to thoroughly wash it.
  • Add the almond milk, almond creamer, and cinnamon to the blender and blend until combined. This only takes a few seconds. You just want the cinnamon completely mixed in so it's not gritty.
  • Drizzle the date syrup in the bottom and around the insides of a glass. Pour in the creamer mixture. Drop in the ice cubes. Pour in the coffee. Top off with another drizzle of the date syrup.

Notes

*The Date Syrup can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for up to a week. This recipe makes more date syrup than you will need for one macchiato - it would be very hard to get out of the blender in smaller amounts. Use leftovers drizzled on dairy free ice cream, oatmeal, dairy free yogurt, as a dip for fruit or graham crackers, or just lick it off a spoon!
**Make the coffee as strong as you like it. Espresso can also be used, again add either 1 or 2 shots depending on how strong you like your drink.
***Macchiato means "to mark" and this is done by pouring the coffee (or espresso) over the almond milk. Coffee shops will serve it to just like this, however, I like to mix it all together before drinking. Mix it or not - enjoy how you like it!
