Nespresso Three Ways

My family recently purchased a Nespresso machine, and to say it’s life-changing would be an understatement. I never used to make coffee at home, but now with our new Nespresso, I make my own coffee every day!

At first, I was hesitant to use the Nespresso because I thought the coffee wouldn’t taste great. But after I saw my mom’s face as she took her first sip, there was no turning back. 

When I’m in a rush, I enjoy a cup of plain espresso, but I make a cortado, a macchiato, or an iced latte when I want something more exciting. I also add different syrups to spice things up. 

Below are three of my favorite drinks to make. I hope you enjoy them!

Iced Lavender Oat Latte


1 cup of ice cubes

One shot of espresso

One tablespoon of lavender syrup 

One shot of espresso

One cup of oat milk

¼  cup of creamer


Fill a glass halfway with ice and add the lavender syrup. Then, add the shot of espresso and fill the glass ¾  of the way full with oat milk. Finally, top it off with your creamer of choice. My personal favorite is the Brown Sugar Oat creamer from Trader Joe’s.

Caramel Macchiato

*This drink can be served hot or iced. 


Two shots of espresso

One tablespoon of caramel sauce

One tablespoon of vanilla syrup 

One cup of milk of your choice 

Caramel sauce to drizzle 


Add caramel sauce to the bottom of a glass or mug, add ice if you choose and add the vanilla syrup. Finally, add the espresso shots and the milk. Drizzle with caramel sauce. 


Two shots of espresso

¼ cup of milk of your choice


This drink is super easy to make! All you have to do is combine two espresso shots with equal parts milk, about ¼ cup. You can add sweetener if you like, but I don’t think it needs it.
