  • 1 tsp milk powder
  • ½ cup skim milk
  • 1 tsp egg white powder
  • 4 shots of espresso (brewed and cooled)

  • 12 Tbsp Caramel sauce (for topping)


To Prepare the Cloud:

To Serve the Starbucks Cloud Macchiato Recipe:

  • Take 2 pint-size glasses and fill each glass with ¾ cup of ice.
  • In each glass, pour 2 shots of espresso followed by half of the prepared cloud.
  • Serve hot or over ice for a chilled drink.
  • Lastly, drizzle 1 tablespoon of caramel sauce on top and serve immediately.


  • To achieve the exact taste, use Starbucks Espresso Coffee Beans to brew your coffee shots.
  • If you don’t have vanilla simple syrup, you can substitute it with 1 teaspoon of icing sugar and ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • To transform the drink into a Cinnamon Cloud Macchiato, sprinkle some ground cinnamon on the caramel sauce garnish.
