How To Make Starbucks Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso

DIY Starbucks brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso recipe.

ONLY 60 calories and 4 grams of sugar. This easy iced coffee Starbucks recipe tastes like the original Starbucks iced brown sugar shaken oat milk espresso. Creating a Starbucks drink at home doesn’t have to hurt your nutrition plan. I love this DIY Starbucks iced brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso recipe, and love it is a healthier version of the original. Updated: I added notes for making this espresso drink without an espresso machine, so everyone can enjoy it.

This recipe is vegan, and if you use the oat milk by Planet Oat, it is a low-sugar version of this popular Starbucks iced coffee recipe. Planet oat milk, an unsweetened version, has zero grams of sugar.

Healthier Than the Starbucks Version of Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Latte

I changed up the nutrition of a regular version of the Starbucks brown sugar oat milk to make it more macro friendly, with far less sugar content than the original. If you are looking for a healthier, easy brown sugar oat milk latte without all the extra calories and sugar, than this is the recipe for you.

What’s in an Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso Drink?

Well, just like the name states, it’s made with espresso shots, brown sugar, and oat milk. But my version of brown sugar espresso recipe from Starbucks is actually really simple, but much healthier.

I love that Starbucks offers dairy-free milk options besides the original soy milk. Starbucks truly has come a long way and listened to their customers by offering other nutrition vegan-friendly options. What I love more than anything is that you can make this delicious recipe right at home and save time and money. That’s a win-win.

But you also get to make a healthier version of this brown sugar oat milk latte from Starbucks, with lower sugar and only 60 calories. Definitely pleased about that. There is also no sacrifice with taste. It tastes exactly the same. It’s refreshing on a hot summer day. Try this recipe today. You can also try using my recipe for my oat milk, which is equally delicious. Get the recipe and read all about the amazing health benefits of oat milk.
