I, Lindsay, am a tried and true ice cream lover. It doesn’t matter whether we are in the height of summer or in the middle of a winter storm, I am always down for some ice cream. But it wasn’t until I discovered this no-churn method that I started making ice cream at home. The base is extremely easy to make, and only requires a few hours in the freezer before it turns into a creamy tub of heaven. And the best part is, there is no fancy ice cream maker required.

I have experimented with a variety of different flavor combinations, but this Caramel Apple Crumble recipe is by far one of my favorites. It has everything you would ever want in an ice cream – flavor, texture and my favorite, a delicious crunch. If you have never made homemade ice cream before, this is the perfect place to start! You won’t be sorry.

Simple Iced Caramel Macchiato Recipe

When I was younger, I used to try and surprise my Dad by already having his coffee made for him in the mornings when we were headed to school. He always used (and still does) two squirts of honey, a splash of cream, and the same travel cup– it was like our thing. At the time I wasn’t allowed to have coffee, so then when I did strike a lifelong love affair with my new morning ritual, we were like two peas in a (coffee bean) pod, and that was BEFORE I introduced him to a caramel macchiato and frappe as a sweet treat. Once that happened, it was game over on regular coffee (we clearly share the same sweet tooth genetics)! Alas, we’ve now upgraded to a little something sweet I like to call Coffee-Mate

All of that being said, we’re not fancy people when it comes to making morning coffee, but it definitely holds a special place in my heart. Mostly that’s because I’m not a morning person, and the quicker I can have my liquid fuel, the better, but the point is I never go without it, which makes this simple iced caramel macchiato recipe perfect for Summers on the go! simple iced caramel macchiato recipe -- sugar & cloth

Eats // Homemade Salted Caramel Mocha


photos and recipe contributed by Nanette of Cultural Chromatics
The other morning I walked into Peet’s to get my morning coffee, when something I saw stopped me dead in my tracks. What was it? The wondrous sign announcing the arrival of fall flavors! Despite it being 80 degrees outside, I began picturing pumpkins, cookies, and everything nice about fall. Seriously. Cups of pumpkin and maple lattes began dancing around in my head. Inspired, when I went home that day, I proceeded to make my own Salted Caramel Mocha. Rich, creamy, yet not too sweet, this is the perfect for those crisp winter days.
Ingredients for Mocha (makes 2 servings):
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups milk
Salted Caramel (makes about 1 cup, perfect to use for any other dessert topping!
  • -6 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • -1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • -3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • -1/2 cup heavy cream
  • -3/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
In a small saucepan, gently heat the milk and bittersweet chocolate on medium heat until the chocolate is melted. Keep the hot chocolate on low so it stays warm.
In a different saucepan, gently heat the corn syrup until it’s warm. You’ll be able to tell because it’ll slightly bubble. Add in the sugar and let it cook over medium heat without mixing it too much. Just enough so it’s the sugar and corn syrup are incorporated. When it turns amber, remove it from the heat and quickly stir in butter. Add the cream in a steady stream while mixing with the other hand. Add in sea salt. If it seems to solidify, keep mixing or gently reheat on low until it’s liquid again.
Finally, mix in two teaspoons of salted caramel into the mocha, and serve!
