Meet the Star of My Recipe: Starbucks Caramel Macchiato Creamer

I use Starbucks caramel-flavored creamer in this recipe. This creamer is an espresso-based beverage sold in Starbucks. It is made with vanilla syrup, steamed milk, espresso and caramel sauce.

The espresso is poured on top of the milk, leaving a dark mark on top of the milk foam that’s why it’s called macchiato (macchiato means marked in Italian). It has a great taste and a creamy texture that set it apart from other flavored creamers. It’s the special ingredient that adds the luscious taste to this dessert!

Heavy Cream vs. Whipped Cream: What’s the Difference?

Heavy cream and whipped cream are two similar high-fat dairy products made by combining milk and milk fat. The biggest difference between the two is the amount of fat in each.

The fat content of heavy cream is slightly higher than that of whipped cream. Aside from that, they’re quite similar.

They can be used interchangeably in recipes without changing the taste, though differing consistency may result.

People use heavy cream in both sweet and savory dishes because it has a thicker or creamier consistency. Whipped cream has a lighter texture, thus it’s typically used in sweet recipes. Always read labels and packages when purchasing.

This helps decipher differences and draw attention to detail. For instance, some whipping cream has added sweetness which could affect measurements in desserts or ruin savory dishes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does caramel macchiato creamer taste like?

It’s extremely creamy and milk fatty, but not butter and burnt sugar like caramel. It’s close in taste to sweetened condensed milk.

What ingredients can I add to the cream?

The following ingredients can be added to the batter for a variation: semi-sweet, milk and/or white chocolate chips, chopped candy bars, chopped chocolate sandwich cookies, or chopped chocolate-covered English Toffee.

How long can I keep this cream in the fridge?

It can last for up to 3 to 4 days without a considerable quality loss. If you need more time, you can freeze it.

Are whipping cream and heavy cream the same?

Heavy cream and whipping cream are two similar high fat dairy products that manufacturers make by mixing milk with milk fat. The main difference between the two is their fat content. Heavy cream has less fat than whipping cream. Otherwise, they are nutritionally very similar.

Helpful Tips

  • You can use any other flavoring to make different flavored whipped cream!  What I love to create with this recipe is a Dalgona style caramel macchiato by adding one tablespoon of instant coffee to the recipe above.  Once your caramel macchiato Dalgona whipping cream has formed, add ice to a cup, milk of choice then top it off with 3 tablespoons of the whipping cream, mix and enjoy!
  • You can add this cream to many different dessert recipes like cakes, waffles or pancakes, cacao topping, with fruit cups, parfaits, Jell-O, trifles, etc.. The delicious hints of macchiato flavor in this cream will make the perfect compliment.
  • You can top your caramel macchiato whipped cream with other ingredients to make it even better. Some of the best ingredients to level up this dessert are fruits or fruit puree, chocolate shavings, and sweet syrup like chocolate sauce or caramel sauce.
  • Serve this dessert in beautifully shaped glassware. This decadent dessert deserves to be presented in an elegant manner so try using either cocktail, short, or round-bottomed glasses.
  • To get cream whipped faster, add ice cubes to a larger bowl and put the bowl of cream on top of it. Start whipping the cream while its on top of the ice bowl and it’ll thicken up in almost half the time!
