Coffee – You will need strongly brewed coffee. I like to use my French Press Cold Brew to make this drink, but you can brew the coffee however you like. Mocha pot, simple brew machine, Aeropress, or any method works fine. Instant coffee dissolved in water can be used, too.
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. You can use half and half, skim milk, or fat-free milk.
If you want a vegan version, you can substitute the dairy milk with almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, oat milk, or any other dairy-free (plat-based milk) option.
Vanilla Syrup – Make the vanilla syrup at home or use store-bought vanilla syrup.
To make homemade vanilla syrup, add 1 cup of sugar (white sugar or brown sugar) and ½ cup of water to a pan. 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 (or 1 scraped vanilla bean) 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 the coffee cubes to make the latte instead of some of the plain ice cubes. This trick will not dilute your cold coffee drink as you sip on it.
