Cafe Latte Ice With Caramel.

Ever since I tasted coffee for the first time I have loved it & through the years my love for coffee has grown! I like all kinds of coffee, but my favourites at the moment are Cafe Latte & Latte Macchiato. As much as I love drinking coffee I never drink it in summer, because I don’t really enjoy drinking warm coffee when there is a heatwave outside!

Instead of going on a coffee strike through summer, I have now found the perfect mixture of warm weather & coffee – so let me introduce you to my absolute summer addiction Ice Coffee! I love that you can mix the taste of coffee & a cooler drink in summer & that you can get all sorts of Ice coffee, from the normal black coffee one to a Cafe Latte.
This summer I have tried out so many different kinds of Ice Coffee & for now my all time favourite is an Iced Carmel Macchiato from Starbucks. Unfortunately an Iced Carmel Macchiato from Starbucks is an expensive addiction to have, so I tried coming up with an alternative – a homemade Iced Cafe Latte with Caramel.

 I didn’t follow a certain recipe I just tried combining the ingredients so I got the taste I wanted, I used the following ingredients:

– Warm Coffee
– Ice Cubes
– Cold Milk
– Caramel Sirup or Caramel extract

I don’t have an espresso machine, so I used my coffee machine & then I made the coffee a bit stronger than normal.  So for 1 cup of water I used 2-3 spoons of coffee. I didn’t use the whole cup of coffee, but it was the smallest amount I could make. It’s all a question of taste, so you can make the coffee as strong as you want.

Then I just poured the coffee into a glass with ice cubes & then poured in the milk, I used 1/3 coffee & 2/3 cold milk, you can mix it as you like so you get the taste you want, it depends on how strong you want it. I like mine semi strong 🙂

Finally I mixed it with the caramel, I just put some in & then tasted it until I got the taste I wanted, for this one I used caramel extract, but I recommend using caramel sirup instead for a more sweet caramel taste. The extract works, but it doesn’t have the same sweetness.

So this is my homemade Cafe Latte with caramel, I think it’s really good alternative to Starbucks. Let me know if you try it & what you think – or if you know a good Ice Coffee you think I should try.
