Save money and make a hot vanilla caramel latte at home. With Valya’s Taste of Home recipe, you won’t have to purchase coffee drinks like this one for $5 apiece. Best of all, you get to choose the type of milk used. Whether you want organic, soy, almond, lactose-free, or another type of milk, use it in this easily customized coffee recipe. Since the coffee creamer also comes from a handmade recipe, you can adapt that, too, to your dietary needs or tastes.

Few things compare to freshly made caramel, and the inclusion of homemade caramel sauce makes this recipe from Baking Mischief stand out from coffee drinks from Starbucks. Unlike overly sweet coffee house concoctions, this homemade drink lets you adjust the flavor to your preference, and the fresh caramel sauce on top tastes better than anything from a bottle. The caramel sauce recipe produces enough for four drinks, so quadruple the coffee recipe to serve a group.

You might have thought mocha had to have dairy in it. Let Life Currents’ recipe for vegan Mexican mocha change your mind. This chocolate and coffee drink uses coconut milk for creaminess and flavor. Mexican chocolate tablets give this drink its distinctive flavor, and in the Texas Hill Country, you can purchase those tablets at almost any supermarket in the hot cocoa section. When you crave chocolate and still want a caffeine boost, try coffee drinks like this rich mocha.
