Alright, before we jump into the fun part, let’s make sure we’ve got everything on hand.

No one wants to be mid-recipe and realize they’re missing that one crucial ingredient, right?

Starbucks iced apple crisp oatmilk macchiato ingredients

Here are the ingredients:

  • Oatmilk: Store-bought is cool, but if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, homemade is where it’s at. (Don’t worry, I’ve got a super easy recipe for that too below!)

  • Espresso or Strong Coffee: Got a fancy machine? Great. Just a regular coffee maker? That works too. We’re not picky – we just want that caffeine kick.

  • Apple Brown Sugar Syrup: This is the secret sauce. It’s sweet, apple-y, and oh-so-delicious. We have a homemade recipe below or you can buy the apply syrup here and mix it with brown sugar or try this sugar free version.

  • Spiced Apple Drizzle: Think of this as the cherry on top, but, you know, apple-flavored. Recipe below.
  • Ice.

Apple Brown Sugar Syrup

homemade apple crisp syrup


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp apple extract (or substitute with 2-3 tbsp apple juice concentrate)

Tips & Tricks:

  • Opt for dark brown sugar if you can. It has a richer molasses flavor which will give your syrup a deeper taste.

  • If using apple juice concentrate instead of extract, consider reducing the syrup a tad longer to ensure it’s not too watery.

Instructions: In a saucepan, combine brown sugar, water, and apple extract or apple juice concentrate.

Heat over medium heat until the sugar dissolves completely.

Let it cool down and then transfer to an airtight container.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Freshly ground nutmeg can make a world of difference in terms of flavor.

  • If you don’t have caramel sauce on hand, consider melting a few caramel candies with a touch of cream.

Instructions: In a saucepan, combine corn syrup, apple juice concentrate, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Heat over medium heat until well blended.

Stir in caramel sauce, let it cool off, then transfer to a squeeze bottle or

airtight container for easy drizzling.

Homemade Oat Milk for Your Iced Macchiato

homemade oat milk


  • 1 cup rolled oats (gluten-free if necessary)
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup or sweetener of choice (optional, for a touch of sweetness)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional, for added flavor)
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Rinse & Drain: Start by giving your oats a good rinse under cold water. This helps to remove excess starch and prevents the oat milk from becoming overly slimy.
  2. Blend: In a blender, combine the rinsed oats, cold water, sweetener (if you’re using any), vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Blend on high for about 20-30 seconds. You want everything well combined, but don’t overdo it, or it may get too thick.
  3. Strain: Using a nut milk bag, fine-mesh strainer, or even a thin dishcloth, strain the oat mixture into a large bowl. You want to remove the gritty oat pulp, so your oat milk is smooth.
  4. Bottle Up: Transfer your freshly made oat milk into a clean bottle or jar with a tight-fitting lid. Store it in the refrigerator. Make sure to give it a good shake before using, as it may naturally separate over time.

Tips & Tricks:

  • If you find your oat milk is too thick for your liking, simply add more water. If it’s too watery, use less water the next time or add more oats.
  • You can save the oat pulp for smoothies, baking, or even as a base for oatmeal!

This oat milk recipe should provide a creamy, neutral base for your Iced Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato, ensuring every sip is as delightful as the last!

Adjust the sweetener and flavorings as needed to suit your personal taste.

FAQs about Iced Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato:

Can I use a different type of milk?

Absolutely! While oat milk offers a creamy texture and mild flavor, you can substitute with almond milk, soy milk, or any other milk of your choice.

I don’t have espresso. Can I use regular coffee?

Yes, you can. Just brew a strong cup of coffee as a substitute. The flavor will be slightly different, but still delicious.

How long will the syrups last in the fridge?

Both the Apple Brown Sugar Syrup and Spiced Apple Drizzle can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Make sure to store them in airtight containers.

Can I serve this drink hot?

Certainly! Simply warm up the oat milk and pour your hot coffee or espresso over it, then add the syrups as usual.

Is there an alternative to corn syrup for the drizzle?

Yes, if you’d prefer to avoid corn syrup, you can try using maple syrup or honey. However, the consistency and sweetness might vary slightly, so adjust to taste.

With our homemade oat milk prepared, the apple-infused syrups ready to dazzle, and our barista (that’s you!) geared up, we have all the pieces of the puzzle in place.

It’s time to bring it all together and craft our very own Iced Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato.

Let’s pour, mix, drizzle, and dive into a glassful of autumnal bliss!
