My Quick And Easy Healthy Caramel Coffee

This Healthy Caramel Coffee is so easy to make and refined sugar free! It really tastes delicious without the sugary guilt! Perfect for busy parents, you’ll have yourself a cup of this healthy caramel coffee in no more than 3 minutes!

You may be thinking, healthy caramel coffee? That doesn’t sound possible! But trust me, it is.
Over the past few years, I have been running to healthier alternatives to improve my overall diet. As my daughter has been getting older, the interrupted sleep and temper tantrums means coffee may be the only thing to keep me alive at 8am!

Every morning I would make my coffee with a small amount of almond milk and stevia. That was until I decided to add the new ingredient that changed my life!

The secret is HONEY darling! Combined with almond milk and coffee, all 3 ingredients harmonise brilliantly together to create a nutty, caramel-y flavour!

I can already see all the angry caramel experts screaming at their computer screens “That’s not real caramel” … I’m sorry ok, but once I tried this recipe, my tastebuds screamed “CARAMEL”- You really need to try it!

Make this coffee whilst your lil one is eating breakfast or save it for a warm treat after they go to bed!

Course Drinks
Total Time 3 minutes
Servings 1


  • 1-2 tbs instant coffee grounds (honestly it's up to you how much you use)
  • Boiled water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp runny honey
  • almond milk


  • Start by boiling your water
  • Add instant coffee grounds and honey to your glass/mug
  • Fill glass/mug half-way with boiling water
  • Stir well until both honey and coffee have fully dissolved and incorperated
  • Splash in your almond milk (I prefer it chilled)
  • Enjoy!!


  • I recommend using instant coffee grounds with a stronger rich flavour, this really helps with the final result. I use NESCAFÉ Gold Rich
  • If you have a little more time, you could still make this with brewed coffee. Just add in the honey first, pour in your coffee and follow with the milk!
  • Prefer iced coffee? Just swap out the boiled water with cold water and dash in some ice cubes.
