We use skim milk but you could certainly use almond milk or coconut milk to make it dairy-free. Your choice. Be your own barista and make the macchiato to your desired preference.

I personally own a regular coffee maker, an espresso machine, and a Keurig. Does this mean I have a problem?

I use them all on a regular basis. Don’t you?

I hope you enjoy my version of Starbuck’s Iced Cinnamon Macchiato.

Drizzle a Starbucks signature caramel cross-hatch and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon over the top just adds that little extra touch. I personally skip both and really enjoy it just like it is.
