Apple Crisp Macchiato Recipe Hot or Iced (Starbucks Copycat)

11 October

 How to make an apple crisp macchiato recipe.  This is for an apple crisp macchiato iced recipe and for the hot drink.  This delicious fall coffee drink is easy to make at home.  This has directions for making the apple syrup and then how to use it to make a Starbucks apple crisp macchiato copycat recipe.





Starbucks Apple Crisp Macchiato Copycat Recipe


I like apples more than pumpkin, but I'll admit that I really love the pumpkin spice latte.  When Starbucks announced the apple crisp macchiato, I was a little skeptical.


I like to give copycat recipes  here, so I did some research and ordered a few to try to come up with a apple crisp macchiato copycat recipe.  


It's hard work testing these recipes, but someone has to do it.


I worked on a hot drink and an apple crisp macchiato iced recipe.  Both are delicious, but I will admit that I prefer the hot recipe a little more.


What is in an Apple Crisp Macchiato?


According to the list of ingredients from Starbucks, the apple macchiato has:


  • Milk
  • Brewed espresso
  • Apple brown sugar syrup
  • Spiced apple drizzle


It's a fairly basic drink, but the syrup is filled with sugars and preservatives.  The drizzle and syrup both have natural flavors.


These natural flavors could be derived from apples.  Or they could be from bug legs.  We really don't know what they are, and they aren't disclosed. 


My Starbucks apple crisp macchiato copycat recipe is made with real ingredients.  It has sugar, but it's still a lighter version of the apple syrup.

 




Is the Apple Crisp Macchiato Any Good?


Yes, the hot drink and the Starbucks iced apple crisp macchiato recipe are both very good.  Personally, I like the hot drink.


I think the hot drink has more of an apple flavor.  But both are great.


Is the Starbucks Apple Crisp Macchiato Vegan?


Yes, it is vegan if you get it with a plant based milk.  You can also make this Starbucks apple crisp macchiato copycat recipe vegan by using almond milk or oat milk.

Should You Stir a Macchiato?


A macchiato is a layered drink with milk on the bottom and espresso on top.  It looks pretty, and it's generally not stirred.


But you can be a rebel and stir this apple crisp macchiato copycat recipe if you want. 





Is Macchiato Hot or Cold?


You can order a macchiato hot or cold.  I have directions for an apple crisp macchiato iced recipe and for the hot drink.


What is an Iced Macchiato?


This Starbucks iced apple crisp macchiato recipe has the same ingredients as the hot drink.  However, I recommend using cold brew coffee instead of strong coffee or espresso.


Learn how to make cold brew coffee or use this Instant Pot coffee concentrate.


The iced version is served over ice, and you'll want to let the apple syrup cool completely before using it.


Starbucks Apple Crisp Macchiato Copycat Recipe Variations


Have fun with this Starbucks apple crisp macchiato copycat recipe.  You can change some things to fit your tastes.  Try one of these variations:


  • Add vanilla extract to bring out the apple flavor.
  • Drizzle homemade caramel sauce on top.
  • Top with apple pie spice or ground cinnamon.
  • Use my canned apple cider syrup in place of the apple syrup.
  • Use almond milk or oat milk in place of the milk.
  • Top with whipped cream if desired.

 


Apple Crisp Macchiato Recipe Ingredients


You'll need to make an apple syrup to use first.  This makes more than you need, so you can store leftovers in the fridge for later.  I like to freeze it in a silicone ice cube tray because it's the perfect size to make an apple crisp macchiato recipe later.
