Treat yourself to this creamy and refreshing Caramel Oat Latte Mocktail made with an alcohol-free Kahlua substitute, vegan caramel sauce, cold brew, oat milk, and delicious toppings.
When it comes to lattes, there's a very special place in my heart. Since I've been cutting cost of eating out as a New Year's resolution, I've had the most fun creating delicious lattes at home. These Starbucks Copycat Sugar Cookie Latte and Salted Caramel Cashew Latte are my top faves of all time.
This Caramel oat latte mocktail is a beautiful caramel-induced drink and I've been absolutely obsessed since making it!These mocktails are super easy to make, include a simple coffee liquor substitute to enhance the flavors, are dairy-free and vegan, and just plain delicious.
The tangy flavor in these drinks comes from a homemade Kahlua substitute. And guess what? You only need two ingredients (plus water) to make it.
This creamy and sweet dairy-free caramel sauce is an all-purpose recipe to use on anything from a Southern Salted Caramel Cake to Caramel Mocha Overnight Oats.
Here’s what you need to make it:
If you aren’t familiar, oats are super nutritious which is why I think that oat milk has become the new dairy-free milk top tier! They include a great source of carbs, fiber (the soluble kind!), protein, and fat. In addition, they are loaded with important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant.
Other great benefits:
Making my own homemade latte drinks of any kind has been super easy for me without the use of an espresso machine or any machine in general. You simply add all the ingredients to a bowl, whisk until combined, and wallah! Of course, if you'd like to have froth milk or any extra pizzaz, using a frother does the trick and adding whipped cream (or coconut whip for vegans) is an easy addition also.
The two components in this simple homemade latte mocktail is the homemade caramel sauce and the coffee.
To make your lattes, you’ll use:
If you want to drink this chilled caramel oat latte mocktail, it’s helpful to have the caramel sauce prepped and ready to go. Once you make and cool the sauce fully, you can store it in an airtight container or glass jar in the fridge for up to two weeks.
When you’re ready to serve, stir the homemade salted caramel sauce into your oat milk, other ingredients, and add your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
Drizzle creamy caramel over oat milk, almond or coconut ice cream. Add a dollop to vegan brownies (yum!). You can even add homemade caramel sauce to your favorite desserts like vegan cheesecake, cake, cupcakes, etc. Also, add a bit of sweetness to your chia pudding, overnight oats, or french toast for a morning kick!
I decided to do a bit of research and I found a few great healthy alternatives to coffee. Now, you’ll be surprised to know that these options give you the same added boost that you need along with some other additional benefits, so be sure to give them a try when you get a chance.
