Expert Tips

  • Homemade vanilla syrup can be made ahead of time. Make a batch and use it to make several Iced Vanilla Lattes.
  • Instead of homemade, you can get vanilla syrup directly from Starbucks by going to any of their locations and asking if they have any vanilla syrup available for purchase. They’ll sell it to you if they have enough in stock. It should cost around $14.
  • Customize the drink by topping the drink with Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Foam!

Questions You May Have

What’s in Starbucks Iced Vanilla Latte?

Starbucks makes this drink with the same 4 ingredients that’s in this copycat recipe: ice, 2% milk, 2 shots of espresso, and 4 pumps of vanilla syrup in a grande.

Can I make this drink with cold brew or cooled down coffee?

For a drink to be a latte, it needs to be made with espresso. You can use strong coffee or cold brew but it won’t have the same taste as using espresso.

How much ice goes into a Starbucks iced drink?

Starbucks iced drinks are half ice. So a grande 16 ounce drink has 8 ounces of ice.
