What is Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso?

Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso is a dairy-free espresso drink prepared with oat milk, strong espresso, brown sugar, and a pinch of cinnamon.

The result is an excellent flavor with a good balance of coffee with sweetness. This vegan shaken espresso drink tastes so incredibly good that you would want to have it every day.

Furthermore, this recipe is best for those who look out for a reliable coffee drink but does not want to consume dairy products. Even those who aren’t opposed to the taste of milk should give this recipe a shot.


You just need a few simple and easy-to-find ingredients. And it’s possible that you’ll find up preferring it to the one that Starbucks sells to you.

Brown sugar: This is a key ingredient in mixing it up with the espresso and creating brown sugar syrup.

We recommend dark brown sugar. The flavor of molasses will be more efficient in darker brown sugar. 

Espresso: For making this coffee drink, you will need approximately two to three shots of espresso.

30-35 ml is the typical volume of a standard espresso. Use decaf or half decaf as needed.

Oatmilk:  Oatmilk is the star ingredient of Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso. This is what makes the drink special since it does not use dairy milk.

Nowadays, you can find quite a few different brands of oat milk on the market. We prefer to use the brand named ‘Barista’. They produce the greatest creamy foam.

Since there is no need for any foaming in this beverage, any oat milk will suffice. However, if you want your drink to be a little foamy, you can use a frother. 

Grounded Cinnamon: Cassia cinnamon and Saigon cinnamon are both required for the preparation of this dish, which is called “Ground Cinnamon.”

Korintje cinnamon powder is used in drinks sold at Starbucks. So, you can buy this one for an authentic taste like Starbucks. 

The rich flavor of this beverage gets its taste in part by the sprinkle of cinnamon on top of it.

Ice Cubes: A handful of ice cubes is required to make a cool lift for you.

 Vanilla Syrup: Vanilla syrup is not mandatory in this drink. Starbucks does not use it. But it is recommended for those who love vanilla flavor.

However, it is totally up to your discretion whether or not to use it. You might also use vanilla powder or vanilla paste.

How to Make  Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso?

The preparation of the Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso takes very little time and yet it provides an incredible sense of fulfillment.

When you prepare it at home, this drink comes out tasting exactly the same as the kind sold at Starbucks, but it will cost you a lot less.

So let’s look at the process in detail. 

Step1: First, you have to make 2 shots of espresso. You can use an automatic espresso machine.

But If you do not have one, you can use a Moka pot on the stovetop to prepare it after that pour the espresso into the glass.

Step 2: Now, make the brown sugar syrup. While the espresso is still hot, melt light brown sugar by stirring it into it.

Give the brown sugar a good stir to help it dissolve. Refine until it reaches the level of sweetness you want.  

Step 3: Take a cocktail shaker or a mason jar and pour ice cubes. Then add the brown sugar and espresso syrup, and oat milk into the jar.

Cover with the lid, then shake the container briskly for about a minute. Give a good shake for twenty seconds. Shake it up till it’s nice and foamy.

If you want to make a bigger batch of this recipe and then put it in the refrigerator.

Step 4: Sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon on top after pouring the mixture into a tall glass or an insulated cup.

The finished product will definitely resemble a cup from Starbucks.

Pro Tips:

1. If you want a more robust and flavored end result from this recipe, use dark brown sugar.

2. Although vanilla syrup is optional, it contributes to a more tasty flavor. But if you do not have any on hand, you are free to omit them.

3. In case you do not own an espresso machine, you can do it with instant coffee as well. You have to add one teaspoon of instant coffee to one-fourth of a cup of water. Instant coffee can be dissolved directly in cold water if you choose to do so. However, the taste will differ from the espresso one.

4. You can add the ground cinnamon directly into the mixer for a nice shake. Or you can also sprinkle it at the end on top of the drink. You can customize the drink to your taste.
