Iced Pistachio Latte – A delicious iced coffee recipe made with just a few simple ingredients and filled with nutty pistachio flavor. Perfect for a hot summer day!
Iced Pistachio Latte
I have been OBSESSED with the Starbucks pistachio latte this season. After perfecting their pistachio latte, I wanted to try making an iced version of the same drink so that I could enjoy it on warmer days. The first step was to make a homemade pistachio simple syrup. Now you can totally buy pistachio simple syrup at the grocery store or online but I love making it myself because it is so easy. You just combine that, strongly brewed coffee that has been chilled (or espresso if you have that available to you), milk, and ice. That’s it!
