WE all love a fancy-flavoured autumnal drink from Starbucks, but if you’re enjoying them on a regular basis, the cost quickly adds up.
So one savvy influencer has decided to help out by posting her recipes to make the beverages at home – and save yourself a fortune in the process.
In one clip, she tells viewers how they can create the viral Iced Crisp Oat Milk Shaken Espresso, which she claims “tastes like fall in a glass”.
You want to begin by combining around four tablespoons of applesauce with eight tablespoons of brown sugar, two of cinnamon, and a glug of water, which you then gently heat until it thickens up.
In another pan, simmer 12 tablespoons of cup cane sugar, three of water, three of applesauces, two of vegan butter and a glug of coconut milk.
Then add a teaspoon of cinema, and a smidge of nutmeg and allspice, reducing it down again.
You can store the two syrups into different jars, and mix with a cup of cold-brew coffee or three espresso shots to make five drinks throughout the week.
In another video, she advises followers as to how they can create a copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew.
“It takes one minute to make,” she writes in the caption, “and tastes a million times better.”
Add a cup of your preferred milk to a blender, along with 6 tablespoons of pumpkin purée with three tablespoons of pumpkin pie extract, a tablespoon of vanilla extract and 4 tablespoons of maple syrup.
Keep the creamy mix in the fridge, and when you fancy a coffee, add ice cubes to a glass with your cold brew, coffee or espresso.
Then top it off with your desired amount of pumpkin cream, and give it a stir.
“I’ll attest to this recipe tasting WAY better than Starbucks,” one fan wrote in the comments.
The canny influencer has also come up with an uber-quick method to dupe everyone’s favourite autumn beverage – Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte.
The super-simple recipe involves whisking together a tablespoon of pumpkin purée with a tablespoon of maple syrup, three tablespoons of almond milk and half a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.
Add ice cubes and pour in more milk of your choosing, and voilà: a Pumpkin Spice Latte in the comfort of your own home.
