Iced Caramel Macchiato from Home

When I am out and about forced to explore the real world, I most definitely reward myself with a trip through the drive-thru.

However, it’s amazing to have the option to whip up my favorite coffee drinks at home whenever I want, too.

No need to worry about seasonal flavors or items that go in and out of stock when you have a good batch of homemade coffee recipes in your arsenal.

As I type this, it’s painfully cold outside. Does that make me want hot coffee only? Nope.

I still crave iced coffee in the afternoon. My mornings are for cozy, hot coffee, while the afternoons are iced all the way.

No need to bundle up and venture out for my afternoon drink.

Within minutes, I can whip up an iced caramel macchiato in my kitchen.

Heck, I can even get the blender out and turn it into a frappuccino if I want.
