The iced latte is a delicious and refreshing summertime treat. This simple recipe only requires a couple of ingredients & can be made in just a few minutes.

The default recipe makes one medium iced latte.

Nutritional information is based on using whole milk.


Units Scale
  • 60ml prepared espresso (see note 1,2)
  • 250ml cold milk (see note 3)
  • optional, to taste: sugar, sweetener, honey, maple syrup or simple syrup (see note 4)
  • ice


  1. Fill a large glass with ice – you want to use quite a lot to make sure that it doesn’t melt away when you add the hot coffee.
  2. Pour the espresso over the top of the ice. You can even brew it straight into the glass with the ice.
  3. Pour over the milk. (see note 5)
  4. Add any extra sweeteners or flavours that you want to add.
  5. Stir well to combine and enjoy!


  1. Any kind of espresso will work. If you don’t have a coffee machine then you can use an Aeropress, an espresso kettle or even a French press.
  2. While many might throw up their hands and exclaim that only espresso will do, you can use instant coffee. Use 2 teaspoons of coffee mixed with 60ml hot water.
  3. Any kind of milk will work for this latte. Feel free to use whole, semi-skimmed or skimmed milk. Or use a plant-based alternative such as almond or soy milk.
  4. If you are using sugar or sweetener then add it to the hot espresso to allow it to dissolve. If you prefer to add a sweetener to the finished drink then opt for something in liquid form. Simple syrup is great for adding to cold drinks and is made by simply combining 1 part sugar with 1 part water. Simmer gently in a saucepan until it reaches a syrupy consistency and store in the fridge for up to 1 month.
  5. You can froth the milk first if you prefer, which will add extra texture and body to the drink. Use a handheld milk frother or pour the milk into a sealed jar and shake it vigorously.
  6. You can make the espresso up to 12 hours in advance. It may lose a little of its flavour and aroma but can be worth the time-saving! Once the prepared espresso has cooled, store it in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to use.
  7. You can flavour your latte in a variety of ways. Chocolate syrup works well, as do these Monin syrups. You can also add whipped cream on top and a sprinkling of nutmeg or cocoa powder.
