For the caramel:

  • 1/2 Cup Coconut sugar, packed
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 4 tsp Ghee (or vegan butter for vegan)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract

For the coffee:

  • 3 Cups Chilled, brewed coffee
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Ice


  • In a SMALL pot, stir together all of the caramel ingredients on medium heat. Bring to a boil.  
  • Once boiling, cook until the caramel reduced by almost 1/2 and deepens in color, stirring constantly so that it doesn't burn, this takes about 5-6 minutes.
  • Immediately transfer to a measuring glass (you should have just over 1/3 cup of caramel) and let sit for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until nice and thick.

To assemble:

  • Fill 3 highball glasses 1/2 way with ice cubes.  Pour 1 cup of cold coffee into each glass, followed by 1/3 cup of almond milk. Add 2 Tbsp of the caramel * syrup into each glass and stir well, until the caramel is dissolved and well mixed.
  • DRINK!



*If the caramel gets a little too hard, you can microwave it for just 5 seconds or so. You want it pour able but not runny!
You can also just make one at a time and store the caramel in an air-tight container on the counter to use as you'd like!
