I came across Coffee Mate’s Brown Sugar Oat Milk coffee creamer from a viral TikTok video of a couple shopping at Target trying to make an at-home Starbucks’ brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso. I’m a Starbucks junkie, so I knew buying this creamer would not only be fun to try at home, but would save me a lot of coins.
After reading several TikTok comments about this creamer being sold out, I was very fortunate to find it fully stocked at my nearby store. Starbucks lists its ingredients for the iced brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso as: oat milk, espresso, brown sugar syrup, and cinnamon powder. Because this oat milk creamer has a flavor of brown sugar, I knew I didn’t have to buy any extra ingredients.
Here’s how I make Starbucks’ iced brown sugar shaken espresso at-home
I only used four ingredients to achieve this at-home Starbucks drink: Starbucks’ Pike Place coffee grounds, Coffee Mate’s Brown Sugar Oat Milk Creamer, caramel sauce (personal preference), and ice. The Starbucks recipe also includes cinnamon to sprinkle on top, but I opted out of this.
I first get a clear tall cup and drizzle my caramel sauce inside. I then add the creamer, ice, and pour in the coffee. For a little extra sweetness, I topped it off with some more caramel.
Starbucks Coffee At Home gives you step-by-step instructions on how to achieve the brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso at home. It’s a bit more involved than my method: they recommend adding all your ingredients in a cocktail shaker or mason jar and shaking for 20 seconds.
The bottom line
Whether you’re trying to save money or just want to try the new Coffee Mate creamer, making the iced brown sugar oat milk espresso at home only calls for three simple ingredients: espresso (or regular ground coffee), Coffee Mate’s Brown Sugar Oat Milk Creamer, and ice. It’s really easy to make and saves you a trip to Starbucks.
