Iced Latte {Starbucks Copycat}

This is a drink recipe that I have been so excited to finally get on Snacks and Sips for quite a while.  After having all of my super popular iced latte recipes like the iced vanilla latte, iced caramel latte, and more, I realized I was missing one…. a simple iced latte recipe.  Just espresso, ice, and milk.  I know, it may sound silly and super straight forward but hey, sometimes even I am don’t feel like having a sweet drink!

Now this drink can be made a few different ways – with my homemade espresso recipe (so easy to make but you do need a few hours to let it brew), an espresso machine, or strongly brewed coffee that has been chilled.  Additionally, you could use a moka pot or aeropress so really, there are a lot of ways to make coffee.  Just use the method that you have the supplies on hand to use! Personally, I usually use my homemade espresso concentrate but it’s up to you what you prefer.  It will have an impact on the drink but really, it just ranges from being a straight up iced coffee to being an iced latte with everywhere on the spectrum in between tasting great!

Additionally, while I used dairy milk, you can use any alternatively milk that you want!

Common Questions About Making an Iced Latte

What is an iced latte?

An iced latte is a iced coffee drink made using cooled coffee/espresso, milk/cream, and ice.

What is the difference between a frappuccino and iced coffee?

The difference between a frappuccino and iced coffee is that a frappuccino is blended and has a base that is made from vanilla ice cream or something similar.  An iced coffee is simply coffee served over ice.

How do you make iced coffee at home?

So there are a few options here for how you want to add coffee to your drink.  I usually use homemade espresso (so easy to make) but alternatively, you could use cold brew coffee or just strongly brewed coffee that has fully cooled.

  • Instead of ice, freeze extra coffee in an ice tray and use it in the iced latte to avoid it getting watered down!
