How to make an iced strawberry latte

To make a strawberry ice latte, start by making a quick strawberry syrup by cooking fresh or frozen strawberries with white sugar. Once the consistency becomes jammy, remove it from the heat and add 1/2 of it to a glass. Add ice cubes and cold coffee, and top it off with your choice of coffee cream.

What kind of coffee do you use to make iced lattes?

Typically, iced lattes are made with espresso shots. If you don’t have an espresso maker, you can use any type of strong coffee. Just make it beforehand and chill it. Or, make cold brew coffee, which is what I prefer to use.

Does strawberry go with coffee?

While strawberries and coffee may not be the most obvious pair, the actually compliment each other well. The sweetness and slight acidity of fresh strawberries blends well with the rich, bitter notes of coffee. The fruity freshness of strawberries can balance out the intensity of coffee.

  • Strawberries- Fresh or frozen strawberries will work. I used fresh strawberries.
  • White sugar- To sweeten the strawberry sauce.

  • Coffee cream- I used oat coffee cream but you can use any kind, or even any kind of milk.
  • Ice.

Substitutions

  • Instead of white sugar to sweeten the strawberry syrup, you can use brown sugar, maple syrup, or honey.

Instructions

  • Dice the strawberries into small pieces, almost small enough to fit through a straw. They’ll shrink while cooking too.

Tips for making a strawberry latte

  • Use cold brew if you don’t have an espresso maker.
  • Use plain cream instead of sweetened coffee cream, as the strawberry sauce is sweetened.

What to serve with iced lattes

Iced lattes are great for summer afternoons and can pair well with snacks or sweets. If you’re serving breakfast or brunch, try a homemade bagel or double up on the fruit and have a vegan strawberry muffin. For afternoon snacking, serve your strawberry latte with a vegan Danish or peanut butter stuffed dates.
