Salted Caramel Latte is an indulgent drink for those days when you need a little extra comfort or feel like being pampered. It’s sweet with a little saltiness, plus I added some cocoa powder for just a hint of chocolate flavor.
A fancy coffee shop specialty drink can easily be made at home and save you lots of money. Typically I’m a plain coffee type with just a little sweetener and creamer added.
But… this past September my husband and I went on our first cruise- a Princess Cruises Cruise off the coast of California. It must have been a month for firsts because I had my first Salted Caramel Latte on the cruise.
And then my second.
And my third.
One for each day of the cruise.
There was a wonderful coffee shop on the Ruby Princess called the International Cafe and boy were their Salted Caramel Lattes ever good! We got one each day late in the afternoon. I don’t usually drink caffeine late in the afternoon, but hey we were on a cruise ship.
With our Salted Caramel Lattes in hand we’d head out to the Promenade Deck, take a seat, and watch the sun set over the water.
That’s my idea of heaven y’all!
I can’t quite recreate that experience at home, but I can recreate a Salted Caramel Latte. 🙂

My husband wanted a “fancy” coffee, but I’m not about to drop $5. So I looked up some recipes and came upon this little treasure and thought I’d try it out. This took no time at all to make and he really likes it. Next time I’ll double the recipe so I can just drink a “fancy” hot chocolate 😍. Thank your sharing your recipe and saving me money. Though inam sure he will want this daily now. 😉
Oh, now I’m sad I didn’t try one of these onboard! But, I’ll be happy to make a million of them now to make up for it! 🙂
That view with a cup of this salted caramel latte totally looks like heaven! I can’t wait to try making this! I am such a sucker for flavored coffee drinks and this one looks perfect! 🙂
This is so happening this morning. Hey, I might even go all the way and make mine a salted caramel mocha ?
That sounds like a magical cruise! Glad you had fun! And also loving that I can make one of these at home, my hubby LOVES them!
Your latte photos are stunning! This looks so tasty and perfect for a chilly afternoon!
Oh my GOSH. Salted caramel lattes are seriously my favorite thing to order at the coffee shop and now you’re telling me I can have it at home?? This is why we’re friends, Christin. 😀 I seriously can hardly stand how amazing these look!
Salted caramel lattes are one of my favorites! I love that you can make it at home for a fraction of the price and calories that you would find in a coffee shop. This looks just perfect for a Monday, Christin!
Will you be bringing me one of these this weekend? Mmmmkay, thanks. 🙂 Looks amazing!!
Can you believe it’s this weekend! Can’t wait to see you!
I feel like being pampered everyday, haha! And this drink looks like the perfect way to do that! I just want to eat the whipped cream and caramel right off the top 🙂
The cruise sounds amazing. We are thinking about doing one soon; my son really wants to! : ) I am a little afraid to put on 10 lbs. with all the amazing food but it’s a ‘sacrifice’ I just might need to make. I love how you re-created the salted caramel latte. It looks insane. I could really relax with a mug of that in the winter…
There is a lot of amazing food, but you also get lots of exercise walking around the ship, especially if you always take the stairs! 🙂
At this moment, I am sipping on a caramel latte in a coffee shop, and I wish I saw this first. Need to try this soon!
Looks like an AMAZING cruise – I love cruises!! All the wonderful sights and of course tastes, and I bet your variation on this latte tastes even better!
I really would love such latte at home.. 🙂
All that caramel on top looks absolutely unreal 🙂
I love making coffee drinks at home! This looks so rich and delicious. I could drink a couple of these right now for sure. 🙂
