It’s easy to make, sweet, and perfect to enjoy when you’re in the mood for a pick-me-up.

what you need:

brown sugar

cinnamon stick

pure vanilla extract


unsweetened oat milk


Combine the water, brown sugar, and cinnamon stick in a small saucepan set over medium heat.

Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until the sugar has dissolved.


Remove from the heat, add the vanilla, and cover to steep for 15 minutes.


To store, remove the cinnamon stick, transfer to an airtight container, and refrigerate for up to 7 days.


Instead of making the brown sugar syrup, you can purchase it as a coffee syrup or melt 1 tablespoon of brown sugar directly in your hot espresso
