Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso | This homemade copycat version of the Starbucks Brown Sugar Shaken Espresso taste like an oatmeal cookie. This Starbucks copycat recipe has only a few ingredients including homemade syrup. Once you learn how to shake espresso you can make up your own flavors!
Is the brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso sweet?
I find the brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso a medium sweetness. Drinks like frappuccinos are much sweeter. With my homemade version, you can make it sweet as you want (or not sweet at all!). I prefer my drinks less sweet so experiment with the amount of syrup you add to yours.
What is in Starbucks Brown Sugar Shaken Espresso?
On its website, Starbucks lists the ingredients for a tall Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso as 2 shots of espresso, oat milk, brown sugar syrup, and cinnamon.
See the recipe card for exact amounts.
First make the brown sugar syrup by mixing boiling water with brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.
Whip the heavy cream with the brown sugar to soft peaks.
Add 1 cup of ice to a large jar with a lid. Pour in the espresso.
Shake the espresso for 30-60 seconds until it turns a lighter caramel color and turns foamy.
Pour the shaken espresso into a tall serving glass. You can add extra ice if you want to.
Add the brown sugar cinnamon syrup.
Pour in the oat milk.
Stir with a straw to mix in the syrup.
Add whipped cream if using.
Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and serve.
Tips for making a Brown Sugar Shaken Espresso
What to serve with Shaken Espresso
I think a small baked good goes well with this shaken espresso as the drink itself isn't overly sweet. Adding the whipped topping sweetens it up but if you want a treat on the side, try my Heart Shaped Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, a Cinnamon Twist, or a slice of my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Bar.
Want to try more shaken espresso? Try my Dark Chocolate Almond Milk Shaken Espresso. For something similar, you can try my Iced Coffee with Instant Coffee, Iced Dirty Chai Latte, or my Iced Caramel Latte.
Make this drink as needed. You can make the whipped topping earlier in the day and keep refrigerated until needed. The brown sugar syrup should last in the fridge for a week or two.
Starbucks puts 2 shots in a tall Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso.
Shaken espresso is made by shaking a hot espresso shot with ice. The result is a more mellow tasting espresso with a foamy texture.
Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso
For the coffee:
- 2 shots espresso (or ¼ cup strong coffee)
- 1 cup ice cubes
- ½ cup oat milk
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar syrup
For the syrup
- ¼ cup boiling water
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the brown sugar whipped cream
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- First, make the syrup: In a small cup or jar, mix together the boiling water, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Whisk until combined although the cinnamon won't fully dissolve. Set aside to cool.
- Next, make the brown sugar whipped cream: Use a hand blender to whip the heavy cream and brown sugar together until you reach soft peaks so it sits nicely on top of the drink.
- To make the drink: Make the espresso or coffee. In a large jar with a lid add the ice and the espresso. Add the lid and shake for 60-90 seconds. The espresso will lighten in color and become foamy on top. (Brewed coffee will lighten in color but won't foam quite as much.)
- Add some extra ice to a tall glass. (I like extra ice, you can skip it if you want to.)
- Pour the shaken espresso over the ice. Add 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar syrup and mix gently with a straw.
- Add the oat milk and then the whipping cream. Sprinkle with cinnamon (optional) and add a straw. Serve.
