A homemade iced latte is a wonderful treat on a hot day. It is a great way to switch up your usual coffee for something cooler while still enjoying the rich coffee taste. We made a no-fuss, quick, and easy recipe for iced latte with cold milk and intense, deep-flavoured brown sugar. The combination of simple ingredients makes this beverage a flavourful all-time favourite you can experience all day, every day.


  • Pour milk, coffee, ice cubes, and brown sugar into a blender.
  • Blend at the highest speed for about 15 seconds or until the iced latte has a creamy consistency.
  • Taste to see if it needs more milk or sugar.
  • Pour the drink into a glass and serve immediately with a straw.

When making this cold coffee beverage, the iced latte ratio is key and is what sets this drink apart from other caffeinated beverages. The perfect ratio consists of roughly a third of espresso or coffee and two-thirds of milk. Our recipe is for 1 serving, but you can easily make it a double and share it with a friend if you keep the milk-coffee ration in mind.


Once the ice starts to melt, it will dilute the coffee taste. Thus, drink the latte right away for the best experience. Alternatively, you can prepare some of the coffee the night before and freeze it in ice cube moulds. Add these coffee-flavoured ice cubes to the drink instead of regular ice cubes, and you will have a full flavour experience that lasts beyond the first sip.

Questions about iced latte

Making a homemade iced latte only takes 5 minutes. All you need is espresso, milk, ice, brown sugar, and a blender to mix the delicious cold drink. Below, you can read more about the drink and our iced latte recipe.

What is an iced latte?
Iced lattes are cold espresso drinks made with rich and strong espresso, milk, ice, and an optional sweetener. You can also use a strong coffee instead of espresso. Our iced latte recipe uses brown sugar for a sweet, deep toffee-like flavour to balance the strong coffee. It is a very simple and easy drink that is prepared in a matter of minutes.
How to make an iced latte in a blender?
Make a perfect iced latte at home with just a few ingredients and a blender. Start by pouring the coffee into a blender with milk, ice cubes, and brown sugar. Blend the ingredients at the highest speed until the latte has a creamy consistency. Taste the coffee drink to determine if it needs more milk or sugar. Pour the latte into a glass and enjoy immediately.
How long does iced latte last in the fridge?
Iced lattes are best enjoyed fresh. However, if you do not have time to enjoy the drink right away, you can keep it in the fridge for a couple of days if you wish to enjoy the latte later or make it ahead of time. It will keep well for about 1-2 days. However, you may want to omit the ice before stashing it in the fridge. Add the ice when you are ready to drink it.
What is the difference between iced coffee and iced latte?
The main difference between iced coffee and iced latte is the milk ratio in each drink. An iced latte consists mostly of milk with a shot of espresso, while iced coffee is brewed coffee served over ice that has little to no milk. As the latte drink is made with espresso, it has a stronger, darker flavour compared to iced coffee.
