What does a caramel mocha have in it?

  • Strong brewed coffee – or espresso
  • Chocolate syrup – use regular or sugar free
  • Coffee Syrup – caramel or vanilla
  • Milk – we love using nonfat
  • Caramel, for garnish

Recipe Swap

  • For a lower-calorie coffee, use sugar-free chocolate sauce and sugar-free syrup.
  • Most grocery stores carry Torani brand syrups in the coffee aisle, they usually have at least one sugar-free flavor.
  • Use full fat or 2% milk if you prefer, or even non-dairy milk.

How to make Caramel Mochas at home

  • Add coffee to your mug along with chocolate syrup and caramel syrup. Stir to combine.
  • Heat milk in the microwave for about 1 minute – or until it’s not but not boiling. If you have a frother, froth until foamy on top. If you don’t have a frother, add to a blender and blend until it’s part foamy, about 3-4 pulses) – make sure to vent your blender.
  • Pour milk over coffee, add foam on top, and drizzle with caramel.

Expert Tip

I use a Keurig and brew it to 4 ounces to make it super strong. You can also use an espresso maker, a Nespresso, or just brew really strong coffee.

FAQs

Is caramel mocha hot or cold?

Both! This caramel mocha can be enjoyed hot or cold. For cold, just serve over ice!

Can I make this a salted caramel mocha?

Yes! I love adding the salt over the whipped cream and caramel drizzle as a Starbucks copycat Salted Caramel Mocha. 

Can I make a latte without a milk frother?

You can! Just whisk your milk in a pan before serving. Or enjoy over ice! It’s equally as good.
