If you’re looking for a cool and easy way to chill off and wake up this is just the recipe for you. This Starbucks iced latte copycat recipe is fast, inexpensive, and oh-so tasty!

How to Make an Iced Vanilla Latte

We need to begin by gathering our ingredients. For this recipe, we’ll need 1/2 cup cold coffee or cold brew, 1/2 cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of vanilla syrup, and ice.

Once you have the vanilla syrup on hand you can whip one of these bad boys up as often as you like without the expense or the commute! You can buy any brand vanilla syrup, I used Torani, which is found at most local grocery stores.

Tip: If you’re really committed to the copycat Starbucks title, you can actually go to your local Starbucks and they will sell you a bottle of their syrup! It might run you a bit more $$ but will give you a closer “Starbucks” experience. 

Begin by grabbing a glass of cold-brew or iced coffee.
