These Salted Iced Coconut Milk Caramel Macchiatos are basically what my ideal Saturday afternoon looks like.

No matter the weather even…sun out, me on a patio chair, one of these in my hand. Alternatively, a cozy rainy day, me snuggled into a giant duvet cover watching Netflix, and again, one of these in my hand.

There’s something about me-time and luxurious, over-the-top afternoon coffees that just go together so beautifully.

But this weekend, I’m trading in a little bit of me-time for some quality time with my girlfriends – aka the GIRL SQUAD. Yes, we did come up with a kind of hashtaggy sort of name for ourselves. 😉

I mean, September is always kind of wishy washy in terms of the weather. Sometimes you get a glorious warm, sunny day that feels like summer, and sometimes it’s cold and grey as if fall has suddenly descended without warning whatsoever.

So this is basically kind of the last weekend of summer for me – I’m taking a whole day off of blogging *gasp* and heading up north with the girl squad to a cabin on a lake about three hours from Toronto.

I’m sure there will be some of these veggie crostinis there, or maybe a little one pot mac and cheese action. And I have like TEN of these homemade fudgsicles in my freezer that I’m trying to get rid of so hopefully they make it in the cooler on the car ride up. Mostly, I just hope that the weather holds out!

Anyways, the story behind these Salted Iced Coconut Milk Caramel Macchiatos. Right..

So on my last road trip up to Canadian cottage country a few weeks ago with my family, we *of course* had to stop in for a Starbucks and bathroom break halfway there. And somehow, I totally missed the company’s latest concoction: you know, those delicious sounding Salted Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiatos?!

Yeah, those. 😀

I was beyond excited to see a new drink on the menu (maybe less thrilled about the price hehe), but I was also kinda bummed to see the drink was a MOCHA.

Don’t kill me, but I’m not exactly the biggest fan of chocolate coffee drinks, so I didn’t order one.

I mean, I LOVE iced coffee (clearly!) and I love chocolate, but I kind of hate the two mixed together. And I already love iced caramel macchiatos, so switching up my usual coffee order TOO much is just something I can’t get used to.

But I was intrigued with the idea of a dairy-free macchiato, and one that used coconut milk at that.

Have I even mentioned my serious coconut obsession?

Gimme it in dessert form, coconut water form, curry form…any form really.

    I love the caramel drinks at Starbucks too – I was so excited to have a work meeting at Starbucks on Friday so that I could get a caramel frappuccino!

    This drink looks divine. Anything with coconut milk has me sold!

      Thanks Shareba!! I seriously cannot get over how much better these taste with coconut, and they are so easily recreated at home (with less calories to boot 😉 )
