Copycat Starbucks Apple Crisp Macchiato

A copycat version of the Starbucks Apple Crisp Macchiato that's easy to recreate at your own at-home coffee bar.

Three words: Apple Crisp Macchiato.

It actually even sounds a little better to me than Pumpkin Spice Latte!

Y’all know you can count on me when it comes to Starbucks copycat recipes. My take on Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso had you talking for DAYS!

Many of you still comment on how easy it is to make brown sugar syrup!

Now I’m back with what I think is going to be the biggest drop since the Pumpkin Spice Latte!

On August 24, 2021, Starbucks officially released its fall menu, and the Apple Crisp Macchiato.

I had a feeling this drink was coming, and I prepped. That preparation paid off because with a few tweaks, I’ve made a really delicious version of this that you can replicate easily at home.

What’s in the Apple Crisp Macchiato?

It’s pretty straight-forward! I had most of these ingredients as basics in my pantry:

  • Brown sugar*
  • Vanilla Syrup*
  • Apple Juice
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Ginger
  • Whipped Topping & Caramel Drizzle*
  • Espresso
  • Oatmilk

Starbucks lists their ingredients in the Apple Crisp Macchiato as: Milk, Brewed Espresso, Apple Brown Sugar Syrup [Invert Sugar, Water, Brown Sugar, Natural Flavors, Salt, Preservative Potassium Sorbate, Malic Acid], Spiced Apple Drizzle [Sugars (Sugar, Brown Sugar), Water, Apple Juice Concentrate, Apple Puree, Ground Cinnamon, Pectin, Preservative Potassium Sorbate, Salt, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Malic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Caramelized Sugar (For Color), Natural Flavor, Ground Nutmeg]

A few things to note about my recipe:

  1. Anything with a * means there’s a sugar-free version available! I used sugar-free ingredients there to keep the carb count a bit lower.
  2. Oat milk is going to be higher carb typically, and you can always sub for unsweetened almond milk if you want, but it’s not the same.
  3. You can make this an iced version, just fill your glass with ice and you’re good to go!
  4. Carb count is calculated with sugar-free ingredients as noted in the recipe card. If you use full sugar ingredients, you will need to recalculate your macros.

fall favorite.

  1. By apple purée, what do you mean? Cooked apples? Raw apples? And diy vanilla syrup? I want to try this but want to be sure I do it right!

    1. You can use apple sauce for apple puree if you want texture. If you don’t want any texture, use apple juice.

      I recommend vanilla syrups like Monin or Torani. Both have a sugar-free version.

  2. This was just the little pick-me-up I needed this afternoon. A little early for fall flavors (according to Texas temps), but such a great tasting drink. Thank you!






  3. Made with apple purée and love that it tastes true to life and not artificial as I’ve been hearing about the Starbucks version. Also love the oat milk swap!






  4. Delicious! The Starbucks one tasted a little more artificial to me. I liked your oat milk swap for regular milk + the flavorings definitely has some apple crisp warmth! Can’t wait to try it iced.
