Hack: Starbucks Iced Shaken Espresso [Keurig® Version]

 Like you, the first thing we look at when we walk into Starbucks® is the new releases. They are usually front and center, on a huge banner, and look delicious. Then we realize that they cost $5.00 and have way more calories than we need. Although they are fun to try, making these drinks at home is more our style. Including the latest – iced shaken espresso’s. There are three versions of the iced shaken espresso. In this article, we will teach you how to make them all with your Keurig® brewer! Including:

Homemade Starbucks Iced Shaken Espresso Recipes

First up is our easy iced shaken espresso recipe. It is made with a few simple ingredients and of course, ours includes K-Cup® coffee pods. We chose to use Green Mountain Dark Magic as it makes a perfect espresso replacement. Cafe Bustelo espresso or any of the Starbucks® pods work too.

Next up is a DIY iced chocolate almond milk shaken espresso. This version is just as easy to make but there are a few more ingredients that will appeal to the chocolate lover in us all.  If you don’t have chocolate malt powder on hand, you can substitute Ovaltine or something similar.
