What is an Almond Joy?

If you aren’t sure what we mean by an Almond Joy latte, it’s a drink based on the popular candy bar, Almond Joy.

Since its debut in 1946, it’s been favored by both kids and adults for years. The chocolatey treat is filled to the brim with crunchy almonds and sweet, shredded coconut.

This iced Almond Joy latte will encompass all those flavors of Almond Joy candies and deliver a mouthwatering, caffeinated drink. The flavors are imitated through coconut syrup, chocolate sauce, and almond milk.

Of course, if you’d prefer to use alternative milk, feel free to! Despite losing the almond flavor, it will still taste just as sweet and delicious.

Try Making Your Own Coconut Syrup

There are many store-bought options for coconut syrup and they work just fine for this iced latte. But, if you’d prefer to make your own, we wouldn’t blame you.

We made our own syrup for this recipe and it’s super easy, not to mention delicious!

Keep reading to learn how to whip up your own batch of coconut syrup.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut extract
  • A container to keep the syrup in

The Process:

Step 1:

Start by bringing the sugar and water to a boil, stirring occasionally.

Once it’s bubbling, bring it down to a simmer and keep stirring until all the sugar is dissolved.

Step 2:

Making Coconut Syrup

Next, you’ll want to pour the simple syrup you just made into a container (we used a mason jar for easier storage and mixing) and let it cool down completely.

Step 3:

Finally, you can add the coconut extract and mix it all together to finish off your coconut syrup. Now it’s ready to be added to your crafted drinks!

Other Variations of This Drink

There are many small changes you can make to this iced Almond Joy latte to either bring out more of its flavor, make it stronger, or have it for colder months.

If you’d prefer to have a hot Almond Joy latte, we say go for it! It’s just as great warm as it is iced, if not better.

You can also customize this drink even more by using cold brew, iced coffee, drip coffee, or even instant coffee instead of espresso. Whatever suits your caffeine desire!
