Caramel Macchiato Recipe
By Peanut Palate
🔪Prep Time: 5 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 15 mins
½ cup brewed black coffee
⅙ tsp vanilla extract
½ cup oat milk or try cashew milk as a substitute
3 tbsp caramel syrup, using the recipe below
For the Caramel Syrup
3 tbsp coconut sugar
¼ cup canned full fat coconut milk
Pinch salt Add more for a "salted caramel" flavor
For the Topping
Vegan Whipped Cream I use the Gay Lea brand of Vegan Coconut Whipped Cream in a can
Caramel Drizzle There should be leftover caramel syrup after you use up the 3 tbsp
1To assemble the drink, pour 3 tbsp of caramel syrup into the bottom of the mug. I have step-by-step pictures above, so you can also follow along there.
2Heat milk on the stovetop. Once it's boiling, take it off the heat and froth it using a milk frother. Oat milk works the best for this, because it froths more than other plant based milks I've used.
3Pour the frothed milk over top of the caramel syrup in the mug. Stir it around to mix, otherwise the syrup will be stuck to the bottom.
4Take the espresso and pour it into the mug over top of the milk. Stir it around.
5Use vegan whipped cream to top it off. Drizzle with the remaining caramel syrup (you should have some left over after using the 3 tbsp above).
6Enjoy right away!

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
