Copycat Starbucks Vanilla Crème Steamer

Starbucks has done it again with another one of their luscious hot beverages that’s perfect when you want to warm up. With my two versions of a simple recipe for a Copycat Starbucks Vanilla Crème Steamer version, you can make one right at home for a fraction of the cost in about five minutes. So, try this easy-peasy recipe and enjoy the soothing vanilla lusciousness.

Coffee or no coffee…

 For those of us that are looking for a warm beverage that doesn’t contain any coffee or espresso, this copycat Starbucks vanilla crème steamer is for you.

It’s smooth and creamy with just the right amount of decadence.

If you are looking for a Starbucks beverage with espresso or coffee, just scroll down and you’ll find a bunch both hot and cold. But, try this one, it’s really delicious and a nice change from one that’s made with espresso or coffee. 

Now that fall has arrived and it’s starting to get that chill in the air. We get to put on some of our favorite warm sweaters and jeans again.

Also, we’re switching from the cold and icy drinks to the warm and hot ones. 

My family always makes it a point to take two days during the fall months to drive around Long Island and upstate New York just to look at the foliage.

This is one of those times I pack a hot beverage to take along for all of us to enjoy during the car ride.

The whole family can enjoy this warm beverage…

This one I’m sharing with you today was the one I packed up in a large thermos and brought along last Sunday when we headed upstate since the foliage starts to turn earlier there before it does here on Long Island.

We all really enjoyed this hot beverage and the car ride was glorious. It’s so beautiful this time of year up in the mountains of New York State. 

Of course I baked a batch of Gingersnap Donuts too. Click the highlighted link to get that recipe also. 

This time of year is also time to put the fireplace on when it’s a cool fall evening and warm up with this vanilla steamer or another warm beverage.

In my book, any occasion calls for some kind of a Starbucks beverage.

If you have been on my blog before, you know I’m the biggest Starbucks fan. I think most of my recipes are copycat Starbucks drinks both hot and cold.

Since we’re getting into the cooler months, I will definitely be coming out with even more Starbuck recipes. 

Some of which will include their bakery items like their Starbucks Iced Lemon Loaf

Oh my gosh, that lemon loaf is beyond delicious. 

I hope you try this new recipe today and all the other ones too. Stay warm and enjoy all the different kinds of copycat beverages that are here on my blog.

You can go right to the search bar, upper right corner, put in copycat and all the copycat recipes will pop up, there are a lot to see.

The vanilla extract and whipped cream are the same in both recipes. Sugar or sugar substitute is optional in both recipes.

 

  • 3 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk, or milk of choice
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons vanilla syrup, regular or sugar free version (I used DaVinci, this is the sugar free  gourmet vanilla syrup for this recipe, both found at Walmart, Target and Amazon or in many grocery stores, usually in the coffee section) Another one is called Torani, also found in the places listed above.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How is this copycat Starbucks vanilla crème steamer made?

It’s made with just 3 steps, that’s it!

 

Here are the simple and easy directions:

  1.  Heat the milk to a simmer over a medium heat in a small or medium saucepan. The milk will start to steam with small bubbles around the edges of the pan. This should take about 1 to 2 minutes. Stir so the milk does not come to a boil. Once you see it steam and small bubbles, remove the pan from the heat.
  2. Stir in the vanilla extract and vanilla syrup. If you are using granulated sugar, add that along too. Now, whisk the milk mixture for about 15 to 20 seconds. It may get a little frothy, you want that to happen but not to worry if it doesn’t.
  3.  Pour the steaming milk mixture into two mugs. Top off with whipped topping. Enjoy this warm, smooth, creamy, vanilla crème steamer.

Enjoy the deliciousness!
