  • 1 1/2 cups milk, I find the skim or reduced fat works best
  • 2 tbsp vanilla syrup, found in most markets or on Amazon
  • 1/4 cup hot espresso, strong coffee, decaf works too
  • caramel sauce to drizzle on top, found in the ice cream topping section of the market


  1. 1.Prepare espresso or coffee. At the same time, steam/froth the milk as directed in link above.

    2.Have a nice big mug ready. Add the milk. Pour coffee into a measuring cup or pitcher that can hold hot beverages, add the vanilla syrup to the coffee and stir to combine.

    3.Stream the coffee over the frothy milk. You’ll see the “stain.”

    4.Now, drizzle the caramel over the top. That’s it, enjoy!
