Missing out on your Starbucks fix as a result of staying at home to be safe? Worry no more because you can make homemade Starbucks drinks in a few minutes!

Generally speaking, although Starbucks drinks seemed to look complicated, they are easy to make. In addition, all the ingredients that you need like coffee, milk, sugar, and primary flavoring are already in your house.

The process also requires very little special equipment. To get things started, you need to start with the basics, which include your syrup, coffee, caramel, and whipped cream.

As we all know, these drinks are espresso-based. For those who have an espresso machine at home, that is a plus. However, for the other, instant coffee will do just fine.

You can easily make your own using an electric mixer to whip heavy cream until you achieve the right consistency. You can also get a can of your favorite whipped cream on your next grocery run as an alternative.

A bottle of caramel sauce can be easily found in grocery stores, but you can also follow a recipe from Food Network to recreate one.

Syrup

 

True to its name, you can create syrup by heating a cup of sugar and a cup of water on the stove for a few minutes. Don't forget to add a tablespoon of vanilla extract for flavor.

Widely popular amongst students, the flat white can be recreated by making fine, frothy milk. This is easy with the use of a frother, but you can also whisk the milk until it froths. You opt to add sugar to taste, but it is just as perfect without the sweetener.
