Keto Caramel Macchiato

Caramel Macchiato is a popular espresso beverage sold at Starbucks and many coffeehouses. It is made with espresso, steamed milk, vanilla and caramel sauce. Caramel sauce is drizzled down the sides of cup before pouring the coffee and caramel is also drizzled on top of the foam.

Traditionally, caramel macchiatos contain a large amount of sugar from the milk, vanilla and caramel sauces. This recipe for keto caramel macchiato uses vanilla extract and sugar free caramel sauce to make an easy homemade version.

The easy coffee drink can be made in minutes so you can enjoy a creamy, caramel macchiato every morning or in the afternoon when you need a little more caffeine.

Sugar Free Caramel Syrup

ChocZero caramel syrup next to glass mug Although you can use any sugar free caramel syrup in this recipe, my favorite is ChocZero Caramel Syrup. It is sweetened with monk fruit and tastes exactly like real caramel. It even has the same thick consistency as caramel sauce does.

I like to drizzle the sugar free caramel sauce down the sides of my mug before adding the coffee. Then I pour in the macchiato mixture and top the foam with additional caramel syrup just to add additional caramel, gooey sweetness.

Milk Substitutions

For my keto coffees, I like to add macadamia nut milk since it is keto approved and has a higher fat content. Macadamia nut milk generally has 5 grams of fat and 0 net carbs in one cup. But you can substitute with any nut milk. Almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk - they all work well in this keto coffee recipe.

If you are allergic to nuts, you can use heavy cream instead. This will make a very creamy caramel macchiato.

How to Order a Keto Caramel Macchiato at Starbucks

If you are at Starbuck or your favorite coffee house, you can ask the barista to make you a special keto caramel macchiato. Tell them to use almond milk instead of regular milk and only a touch of caramel drizzle or no drizzle at all (if you are going for the least carbs possible). You can also add sugar-free caramel syrup.
