Coconut Caramel Macchiato

Coconut Caramel Macchiato is an easy, coconut milk macchiato with espresso and silky caramel syrup. It’s dairy free indulgence!
I’m a coffee fanatic….I admit it. I have espresso every morning with a splash of milk, or I enjoy Cold Brew when it’s hot out. That’s pretty much the way it goes day in and day out, which may sound a bit boring to some of you.
I don’t normally indulge in flavored coffee drinks, but from time to time I do love to treat myself and enjoy one….especially when it’s homemade. This Coconut Caramel Macchiato is just that — an indulgent, homemade coffee drink that doubles as a pick-me-up and a treat.
It’s quite the multi-tasker. 🙂
This coconut milk macchiato merges 3 of my favorite flavors — espresso, coconut, and caramel. It really doesn’t get much better than this! The inspiration for this entire drink came from Tate+Lyle® Caramel Pure Cane Syrup, which is silky smooth with an incredible caramel flavor.
And if you know me at all, you know I love my caramel. 🙂
If you’re not familiar with these syrups, they artfully blend pure cane sugar and true vanilla, caramel or hazelnut flavor.
There are 4 delicious flavors to choose from: Hazelnut Pure Cane Syrup, Caramel Pure Cane Syrup, Vanilla Pure Cane Syrup, and Zero Calorie Vanilla Syrup.
You can enjoy cafe-style coffee and beverages at home with these gourmet beverage syrups. Not only are they delicious in coffee drinks, but the velvety smooth taste and sweet aroma of vanilla, hazelnut, or caramel are also wonderful in teas, sodas, smoothies, and cocktails. These gourmet beverage syrups are a nice way to reward yourself with a delicious hot or cold beverage customized to suit your taste.
For the milk, I chose refrigerated coconut milk, but you can use canned coconut milk as well. Coconut milk has a creaminess and flavor that I love, and it was perfect paired with the caramel pure cane syrup in this macchiato.
The best part of making your own coffee drink is being able to customize it the way you like. I flavored my drink with 1 tablespoon of caramel syrup, but you can absolutely add more or less to suit your tastes. This syrup has big caramel flavor and makes this macchiato incredibly indulgent without being over the top.
Speaking of over the top, let’s talk about how to top this coconut milk macchiato off. I chose to top it with whipped coconut cream to continue on with the whole coconut theme, but you can also use regular whipped cream as well.
And because there’s no such thing as too much caramel or coconut, I also topped my coffee drink with a drizzle of salted caramel sauce and toasted coconut. If you don’t have caramel sauce on hand or you happen to be vegan, you can simply drizzle the caramel pure can syrup on top if you like!
It’s nice to have choices isn’t it? That’s exactly what you have when you make your own Coconut Caramel Macchiato at home, and you’re always going to get it exactly the way you like it with quality ingredients and just the right amount of flavor.
Satisfaction guaranteed. 🙂

Coconut Caramel Macchiato
For the coffee:
- 2 shots brewed espresso*
- 1 cup coconut milk I used coconut milk found in the refrigerated section of the supermarket
- 1-2 tablespoons Tate+Lyle® Caramel Pure Cane Syrup
Prepare the coffee:
- Warm the coconut milk in a coffee mug in the microwave or on the stove top in a small pan until very warm. Add the brewed espresso and the syrup, and stir until combined.
Prepare the whipped coconut cream:
- Scoop the solidified coconut cream from the can and place in a chilled bowl (you can use the remaining coconut liquid in smoothies, etc). Beat on medium speed with an electric hand mixer until fluffy, then add the sugar. Immediately top the macchiato with the cream, drizzle with more caramel syrup or caramel sauce, if desired, and enjoy!
- *If you like your coffee strong, use 2 shots of espresso!
- *You will have plenty of whipped coconut cream leftover for more macchiatos! Store leftover cream in an airtight container and re-whip right before using again for best results.
- Sweetness is a personal preference, so I suggest starting off with the minimum amount of the syrup in the coffee and sugar in the cream that’s listed first as you can always add more later.

I usually have a cup of coffee (and tea) every day, and every now and then, make a more indulgent drink. This macchiato sounds delicious, Marcie! I’ve never tried a syrup in my coffee before, so I love the sound of it. Looks so much better than the coffee shop kind, too!
Thanks, Gayle! I rarely drink coffee drinks like this, which makes them extra special when I do. And this syrup was so delicious!

We loveee our coffee too at our house! And have been debating whether or not to get an espresso machine .. decisions, decisions!! This macchiato is so so fun! I love it!
I used to have an espresso machine and gave it up — the pour-over method with a mini frother works great for me! I do love the looks of those Nespresso machines, though. 🙂 Thanks, Ashley!
