Hack: Starbucks Iced Shaken Espresso [Keurig® Style]

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 four versions of the iced shaken espresso. In this article, we will teach you how to make them all with your Keurig® brewer!

Homemade Starbucks Iced Shaken Espresso Recipes


Iced Shaken Espresso

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.
