The wonderful thing about this iced latte is that it’s very versatile. I have used regular coffee here as it is easily available in homes. However, if you want, you can make this exact same recipe using an espresso shot.

Milk can be substituted with cream or a combination of milk and cream. Caramel sauce can be replaced with caramel simple syrup. And if you prefer sweeter coffee, then feel free to add a sweetener of your choice. I have used salted caramel to make this salted caramel iced coffee, but you can also use unsalted caramel sauce here.

What is an Iced Caramel Latte

An Iced Caramel Latte is a refreshing beverage that blends coffee (espresso) with milk and caramel sauce/syrup, served chilled with ice. Known for its sweet, velvety caramel flavor and creamy texture, it’s a popular choice among coffee lovers.

Ingredients

  • Coffee: I have used 1/3 cup of strong brewed coffee. To make it stronger, use up to 1/2 cup. You can also use 1 1/2 shots of espresso to make this coffee.

  • Milk: I have used full cream milk here. To make it vegan, swap it with thick coconut milk, unsweetened oat milk, or unsweetened almond milk.

  • Caramel Sauce: I have used caramel sauce for making this iced latte and also for drizzling on top. You can also use caramel syrup here.

  • Ice Cubes: Add as much as you need.

  • Whipped Cream: It is an optional ingredient used only for garnishing. So feel free to skip it.

How to Make Iced Caramel Latte

Making a caramel latte is very simple. Just brew your espresso or strong coffee and let it cool slightly. Then blend it with the caramel sauce until well combined. Fill a tall glass with ice cubes. 

Pour the coffee-caramel mixture over the ice. Add the chilled milk. Stir everything together to mix the flavors evenly. 

Top with whipped cream and drizzle additional caramel syrup on top, and you have made yourself a glass of iced caramel latte. Enjoy! 

Serving Suggestions

This latte is an ideal drink to cool down on a hot day, as a mid-afternoon treat, or for brunch. You can enjoy it as it is or pair it with a flat croissant, Apple Bagel, Cottage Cheese Bagel, or apple upside down puff pastry for an overall brunch experience.

Variations

Iced Salted Caramel Latte:

To make the salted version of the caramel iced latte, either use salted caramel sauce or add a pinch of sea salt to the caramel and coffee mixture before blending.

Dairy-Free Version:

Instead of regular dairy milk, use unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened coconut milk, or unsweetened oat milk.

Extra Caramel:

For a sweeter, more decadent drink, you can use a combination of caramel sauce and caramel syrup. Or just increase the amount of caramel sauce.

Tips for the Perfect Iced Caramel Latte

  1. Chill Your Glasses: You can chill your serving glasses in the freezer for about 10 minutes before pouring the drink. This will keep the latte cooler for longer.

  2. Ingredients: Use high-quality coffee/espresso and caramel sauce/syrup for the best flavor.

  3. Sweetener: For me, caramel sauce is enough. But if you prefer a sweeter taste, then feel free to add a sweetener of your choice according to your taste. If you are using sweetener, add it to the coffee along with the caramel sauce and blend.

  4. Creamy Drink: To make it creamier, swap half the amount of milk with cream.

  5. Serving: You can serve it as a refreshing beverage any time of the day.
