Copycat Starbucks Iced Latte, Vanilla or Caramel
This copycat Starbucks vanilla or caramel iced latte recipe is easy and delicious.
Syrup (If you don't have it already)
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup water
- ¾ tsp vanilla (optional)
- 1 tbsp instant coffee (or espresso powder)
- 6 tbsp water
- ¾ cup milk plant-based for vegan
- 1.5 tbsp syrup
To Make Caramel Syrup
In a small saucepan, heat sugar on medium-low heat until the crystals start to dissolve. This will take some time, about 15-20 minutes so be patient. Stir or shake the pan to prevent burning.
Once it's all dissolved and golden brown, add the water. It'll sputter so be careful!
Stir the water and sugar together and continue to heat until the sugar is all dissolved.
Remove from heat. Store remaining syrup in the fridge in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
Iced Latte Assembly
Start by dissolving the instant coffee or espresso powder in water. Make sure all crystals are dissolved. If you have an espresso maker, you can substitute this instead - make 2 shots.
In a glass, add 1.5 tbsp of the syrup and milk. Then add ice.
Pour the espresso shots over the top.
Stir together and serve!
