Where my Starbucks babes at? In Florida, we are insanely limited with coffee options. It’s either Dunkin or Starbucks with the few small business coffee shops in between. I know out there on the west coast y’all have Dutch as well as the option of Starbucks or Dunkin. But, I haven’t had the pleasure of trying that yet so I am a Starbucks girl through and through. Yes, I pay $6 for a coffee and it is worth every single penny. I even have my kids loving Starbucks just as much as their mama.
That’s not the point of this blog. I was left without a car for quite a bit and of course, that meant no Starbucks. Do they deliver? Yes. However, I am totally not paying $20 for a coffee to be delivered to my house. I gotta draw the line somewhere! So, I started looking up how to make it at home and I have found the perfect recipe!
My Go To Order
I love trying new things at Starbucks of course but, my ride or die coffee order is an Iced White Chocolate Mocha with extra caramel drizzle and vanilla sweet cream cold foam. Simple! Not a whole lot of crazy syrups and pumps of this or that. I do have a crazy order but I won’t even attempt to make that at home! Yet.
How We Make It At Home
So, I set out to find everything I needed on a grocery trip with my mom. I grabbed the Starbucks iced coffee of course along with the white chocolate mocha creamer. Then it was time to hunt down the sauce and syrup. I know that you can actually buy the vanilla, caramel, and I believe one other syrup from Starbucks themselves. I just don’t have the guts to ask. You can find some on Amazon though! I found this tiny bottle of vanilla and decided that was all I needed to begin to attempt to make it at home.
I couldn’t find caramel sauce near me for some reason but I did find the white chocolate and decided that I would just use that instead for now. Then of course I needed heavy whipping cream for the cold foam. Now, the actual Starbucks recipe also puts 2% milk in it but I have done it with just the heavy whipping cream and vanilla syrup and it’s been perfect for me. After I grabbed all of that, I ordered a hand-held milk brother off Amazon. This baby is STRONG and whips that cream within seconds. Frothy goodness y’all.
Totally simple and things that you can order off Amazon or just run to the grocery store and grab. It’s definitely my go-to at home when I want a Starbucks and also helps save money by making it at home too!
