Summer is to drink iced drinks, so why not adding some variety into your daily coffee intake and enjoy this iced coffee for a break? I love the flavorful taste of vanilla added to this coffee.

Furthermore, dipping away from that with caramel sauce whipped cream almost feels like having a little dessert!

It’s sweet, creamy, and gives you lots of energy from the caffeine.

Iced Vanilla Latte Starbucks Favorite

Who doesn’t like the iced skinny vanilla latte from Starbucks? It’s such a delicious, creamy, and refreshing summer drink which lets you keep focused on those super hot days.

Let me show you how to make this iced latte at home – as good as the one from Starbucks, but less expensive, and you don’t even need to leave your house for it.

Iced Vanilla Latte Recipe With Soy Milk

To make this recipe super fast and with only a handful of ingredients, it’s the easiest to make it with vanilla-flavored soy milk.

This plant-based milk does not only has a wonderful vanilla taste, yet it also is slightly sweeter than usual cow or plant-based milk.

Many recipes are calling for vanilla syrup, but it’s not necessary to buy one only to make one drink out of it. Also, those syrups usually consist of 90% sugar and some vanilla flavor.

How To Make An Iced Vanilla Latte

Ingredients you need:

  • A shot freshly brewed espresso
  • Vanilla soy milk
  • Whipped cream, go for a plant-based whipped cream if you want to make this recipe entirely vegan
  • Salted caramel sauce, optional, but adds a sweet flavor

You don’t need to have an espresso machine at home. Delicious espresso can either be made with a capsuled coffee maker or using ground coffee beans with a Bialetti.

How To Make It:

  1. Add the soy milk and ice cubes in a glass. Stir well.
  2. Slowly pour in a shot of strong brewed coffee or espresso. This way, you can remain the gorgeous layers as you see in the pictures.
  3. Top it with whipped cream and salted caramel sauce.

Recipe Variations:

  • It’s optional to use salted caramel sauce. Leave it out if you don’t have the time to make it or don’t like caramel.
  • Add some ground cinnamon.
  • Use ½ cup strong cold brew coffee instead of an espresso shot.
  • Leave out the espresso shot and add 1-2 tsp instant coffee.
  • Don’t have vanilla milk? Use any plant-based milk instead (I love oat milk) and stir in vanilla extract (1 tsp or more) and 1 tbsp maple syrup or agave nectar.

    1. Hi Blu, I can imagine it’s tasty too with almond milk. But make sure to add some vanilla extract, otherwise, it won’t taste the same. Let me know how much you liked it. All the best, Aline
