This healthy Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice drink is even better than the real thing! Hot apple juice is brewed with herbal tea and spices, topped with whipped coconut cream, and a decadent caramel drizzle.
Ingredients
For the Apple Spice drink:
For the coconut whipped cream:
  • 1x400ml tin of full fat coconut milk (refrigerated overnight or for 8 hours)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup/light agave
  • ¼ tsp vanilla powder (optional but tasty)
For the caramel drizzle:
Instructions
  1. The night before making, place your tin of coconut milk into the fridge and leave until needed.
  2. Add your freshly pressed apple juice, Pukka Wild Apple & Cinnamon tea bag, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, and vanilla powder into a heavy bottomed pan. Place on a low heat and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 3 minutes before removing from the heat and leaving to infuse for another 5 minutes.
  3. Remove your tin of chilled coconut milk from the fridge. Open the tin carefully, poking a hole into the creamy top layer and drain out all of the water. Scoop out all of the solid cream into a large mixing bowl. (For best results use a pre-chilled metal mixing bowl. Add your maple syrup and vanilla powder and whisk using large strokes to beat in as much air as possible. Once the cream forms large stiff peaks it is done. Place to one side until needed.
  4. Next place all of the ingredients for your caramel drizzle into a high powered blender and blend until smooth. Be sure to use piping hot water to ensure all of the ingredients combine fully.
  5. Pour your Apple Spice drink through a mesh strainer into a suitably sized glass, spoon on a generous dollop of coconut whipped cream, drizzle over your caramel sauce and enjoy!
Notes
If you choose to make the caramel drizzle you will need to store the remaining sauce in an airtight container within the fridge. Consume within 1 week of making.
