We love making tasty recipes here at Roasty, especially ones you can easily make in the comfort of your home – If you have an espresso machine at home, we have so many great Iced Latte recipes you can try without needing to steam your milk!
Cherry-vanilla is a classic flavor combo that goes way back. From vanilla ice cream topped with candied cherries to different soda varieties sporting the flavor duo – it is well beloved.
So naturally it only makes sense to turn it into a latte!
What You’ll Need
- Tart cherry juice
- Vanilla syrup
- Maple syrup
- Creamer of choice
- Handheld milk frother
- Two serving glasses
Make It Your Own
Firstly, let’s review the best options for you and explore the use of substitutions to make this drink your own.
Tart cherries are great anti-inflammatory fruit, helping soothe aches and pains in the body. When looking for tart cherry juice, we highly recommend finding one with little to no added sugars. This will give you the best flavor and full health benefits of these types of cherries.
Both the vanilla and maple syrup portions of this recipe are a bit more common, especially if you are a big enthusiast of making your own drinks at home. Torani Vanilla Syrup is made for coffee drinks and is delicious, plus the pump makes it easier to get the same taste every time!
The best type of maple syrup is fresh from the trees, rather than a corn syrup-based recipe. You can often find real maple syrup in grocery stores, but can also order online. Not only does it add sweetness to your drink, but also adds that delicious maple flavor, which you won’t get quite the same with from an artificial maple syrup.
You can use whatever creamer base you like best – whether whole milk, almond milk, or half & half, do what you like best! If using alternative milk, we suggest using an unsweetened and unflavored type to get the best flavors from the cherry, vanilla, and maple.
Lastly, if you don’t have fresh espresso on hand but are still curious to try this drink, you can always substitute it for a strongly made cold brew or use instant espresso instead. But fresh certainly is best in this case.

How To Make A Cherry Vanilla Latte
Although this drink does have a handful of ingredients, it takes hardly any time to make. We’ve broken it down into four easy steps:
Start by brewing 1-2 shots of espresso. Set to the side to cool down.
Fill your serving glass with ice and set aside.
In another glass add your cherry juice, vanilla syrup, maple syrup, and creamer of choice. Mix together with a milk frother until light and fluffy.
Pour the cherry vanilla creamer over the ice and top with your espresso. If desired, stir together until thoroughly mixed, or drink as is. Enjoy!
