TIP OF THE DAY: Three Minute Caramel Latte

Yesterday we wound up in a long line at Starbucks. All we wanted was a plain cup of coffee. Everyone else was there for a caramel latte or pumpkin latte, which require far more prep time.

Please don’t think we’re being self serving, but you can make your own caramel latte at home, in three minutes or less.

The recipe below is courtesy Nescafé. It yields two servings.

Recipe Variations

  • If you already have brewed coffee, substitute it for the coffee granules and the hot water. You’ll turn this into a two minute caramel latte!
  • You can substitute chocolate or strawberry toppings or flavored syrups for equally easy variations.

  • You can use sugar-free topping/syrup and lowfat evaporated milk for a low-calorie treat.
  • You can have one of these for dessert. For a richer dessert, add a scoop of ice cream.
  • You can vary the recipe with your favorite extracts (try almond extract) and other flavorings.
    You’ll save a lot of time and money. This recipe serves two, so instead of meeting at the coffee shop, invite a friend over. Perhaps s/he can pick up the muffins.



  • 1 can (12 fluid ounces) can Carnation Evaporated Milk (you can substitute evaporated lowfat milk or fat free milk)
  • 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping plus additional for drizzle
  • 4 teaspoons Nescafe Tasters Choice French Roast Instant Coffee Granules
  • 1 cup very hot water (slightly less than boiling)

    1, MICROWAVE. Heat the evaporated milk and ice cream topping in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 2 minutes or until very hot.

    2. BLEND. Carefully pour the mixture into a blender. Cover and blend on high for 1 minute or until very frothy on top.

    3. MAKE COFFEE. Place 2 teaspoons coffee granules into each of two 12-ounce coffee mugs. Add 1/2 cup hot water to each mug; stir.

    4. TOP. Gently pour the evaporated milk mixture into each mug, spooning foam on top. Top the foam with a thin drizzle of ice cream topping, if desired.
