August 7, 2018
Starbucks is the epitome of early mornings and late nights. With their array of fabulous drinks, it’s hard not to love this coffee chain. But drinking at Starbucks can put a dent in your wallet, especially if you’re absolutely in love with their drinks.
A great money-saving solution is to recreate your favorite Starbucks drinks at home. These 10 Starbucks copycat drink recipes taste just like the real deal and will save your wallet’s life. Check them out below!
Make a cup of Starbucks beloved iced caramel macchiato in your own home! If you don’t already own an espresso maker at home, Bialetti’s espresso maker is a must-have. It creates a rich espresso that’s comparable to the finest coffee houses in Italy.
Matcha is a great way to feel energized – no crash involved. This is by far one of my favorite Starbucks drinks and the copycat recipe tastes just like it, especially if you use Torani’s vanilla syrup (the same syrup Starbucks uses)! And because it’s so easy to make, you’ll save so much time in the morning. I highly recommend this drink if you haven’t tried it! 🙂
Chai is an aromatic blend of spices that’ll awaken your senses. Make this chai latte to start your day. Though it may sound tempting to drink it at night, it’s high in caffeine so I’d advise against it unless you need to stay up late!
A caramel frap is the perfect drink to cool off on a hot day while giving you a much-needed booster. The secret ingredient to getting a smoother frap without an icy texture is xanthan gum. While it may seem pricey to purchase these essential ingredients at first, you’ll save so much in the long run!
3 tbsp of instant coffee
1/2 tsp of xanthan gum
3 tbsp of water
2 cups of ice
1 cup of milk
6 tbsp caramel sauce
top with whipped cream and caramel sauce
For a non-caffeinated drink, even the kids will enjoy, make this copycat vanilla bean frap. It’s super simple and the perfect treat for a hot day. Adjust the sugar and ice cream levels to fit your taste!
1 cup ice
1.5 cup milk
3 scoop vanilla ice cream
1 tsp sugar
