Iced Coconut Mocha Macchiato, aka Chocolate Milk for Adults (With Caffeine)

The macchiato.

Just the name looks intimidating, no? Chances are if you asked the average person on the street exactly how to make one, you’d get a blank stare in response.

Turns out macchiatos are completely uncomplicated to whip up—the recipe is a simple ratio of two parts espresso to one part milk foam, with the foam usually dolloped on top.

They’re divine served hot, and maybe even better on ice. And better still when drizzled with caramel or chocolate for a hint of sweetness. This summer, Starbucks unveiled a dairy-free, soy-free version made with coconut milk and chocolate. Basically, it’s like caffeinated chocolate milk with a hint of espresso—how can you pass up the chance to replicate that at home?
