This iced cinnamon macchiato uses a simple homemade cinnamon syrup. Add the sugars and water to a saucepan. Whisk until the sugars are dissolved. Add the cinnamon sticks and simmer for 10 minutes on low heat. Remove from the heat, add the vanilla extract. That’s it, simple right? Store in an airtight jar or bottle in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.

Fill the glass almost full with ice cubes, then pour the syrup over the ice. Pour 1 cup of milk over the ice. Pull 2 shots of espresso and pour slowly over the milk.Iced Cinnamon Macchiato - Beat the heat, save money with my copycat version of Starbucks Iced Cinnamon Macchiato!

We use skim milk but you could certainly use almond or coconut milk. Your choice. Be your own barista and make the macchiato to your desired preference.

I personally own a regular coffee maker, an espresso machine, and a Keurig. Does this mean I have a problem? I use them all on a regular basis. Don’t you?

I hope you enjoy my version of Starbuck’s Iced Cinnamon Macchiato. You can drizzle caramel over the top with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon. I personally skip both and really enjoy it just like it is.
