Cold and delicious iced latte made fresh on the hottest summer days.
My summer go-to drink is a delicious Iced latte. I pair my favourite coffee and a sweetened milk for an absolutely addictive and cooling beverage.
Store-bought bottled iced lattes are absolutely loaded with sugar and calories, which really aren't needed. In fact, a bottle of a popular brand of latte is well over 300 calories! For a quarter of the calories (and a tiny fraction of the price) we can whip up a wonderful, iced latte that perfectly matches our tastes.
My preferred combo is a pecan flavoured coffee with French Vanilla latte (see tips), or cashew milk, sweetened with a little maple syrup. Delicious!
TIP: Those with a Kureg machine, try replacing the oat milk with French Vanilla Latte, or Chi Latte. Just brew a batch and cool then refrigerate, just like the coffee.
(Makes 1 serving)
1/2 cup coffee, brewed and cold (use your favourite)
1/2 cup almond milk (or dairy milk or other non-dairy milk)
1 teaspoon maple syrup (or to taste)
Brew the coffee as you normally would. Place it into a carafe or bottle and let come to room temperature before refrigerating for 3 to 4 hours.
In a tall glass filled with ice, add the cold coffee, almond milk, and maple syrup. Stir well and enjoy.
