About Iced Vanilla Latte
An Iced Vanilla Latte is a coffee beverage made using strongly brewed coffee, milk, vanilla-flavored syrup, and lots of ice.
This drink is popularly served at Starbucks.
I tried my hands at making this Starbucks Copycat drink at home and believe me the result was fabulous.
Making Starbucks Copycat Iced vanilla Latte at home is super easy and it comes together in under 5 minutes using 3 simple ingredients.

Coffee – You will need strongly brewed coffee. I like to use my French Press Cold Brew Coffee to make this drink but you can brew the coffee however you like. Mocha pot, simple brew machine, Aeropress, or any method works fine.
If you have an espresso machine, then 2 shots of chilled espresso also work well in this recipe.
Get freshly ground coffee beans from Starbucks for a very close taste.
Milk – I like to use whole milk to make my latte, as it turns out nice and creamy. You can also go for half and half, skim milk, or fat-free milk for this coffee
If you are looking for a vegan version, you can substitute the dairy milk with almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, oat milk, or any other dairy-free option.
Vanilla Syrup – Make the vanilla syrup at home or use the store-bought one.
To make vanilla syrup at home, add 1 cup sugar in a pan along with ½ cup water. Cook on medium heat until sugar is dissolved, stirring a few times. Remove the pan from heat and let the syrup cool down. Add 2 teaspoon vanilla extract and mix well. Transfer to a glass bottle and refrigerate for up to 1 month. Use as required.
Want to add more flavor to the iced latte? add in a little ground cinnamon. It really adds a unique flavor to the vanilla iced coffee.
You can also freeze some brewed coffee in ice cube trays and use them to make the latte in place of some of the plain ice cubes. This trick will not dilute your coffee as you sip on it.
