When it comes to different types of coffee, iced coffee is one of the best. If you have ever tried the iced coconut milk latte from Starbucks, you will know how deliciously tasty it is. It is a great plant-based alternative, and is surprisingly easy to make at home.

In this article, we will be talking you through how you can recreate this iconic Starbucks drink at home, in just a few simple steps. Not only is this great to have as an occasional treat, it will also save you money in the long run too!


Before you begin you will want to ensure that you have all the ingredients that you need:

  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • A handful of ice
  • 1 shot of Starbucks coffee (either ground coffee of a capsule)
  • Syrup, sugar syrup, sugar, or sweetener (optional)

As you can see, there are only a handful of ingredients you will need to make this copycat recipe.

If you want the coffee to taste as close to Starbucks own as possible, we would recommend using Starbucks coffee. You can choose to use one of their capsules if you own a capsule coffee machine, or you can use their ground coffee. If you prefer to use a different type of coffee, you can do this too.

Coconut milk will add a flavor and sweetness to your coffee, so it is down to personal preference whether you would like to add any additional sugars, syrups, or sweeteners to your iced latte.


Step One – Preparing The Coffee

The first step you will want to take is to brew the coffee. You can do this in a number of different ways, depending on the appliances you have.

The first thing you’ll want to do is brew your espresso coffee. You can use a Nespresso or Keurig pod machine and  buy Starbucks espresso pods.

Sorry, it looks like the link has been broken!

If you don’t have a Nespresso Machine or Keurig machine then you can use your own espresso machine. Just buy blonde, light, or Starbucks Veranda blend roasted coffee beans, grind fine, and prepare one or two shots for your latte.

You will want to try to avoid instant coffee as this will not give you the desired taste you will want. However, if you don’t have any coffee machine then certainly try this recipe with instant coffee!

Step Two – Cooling The Coffee

Once the coffee has been made, you will want to cool it as quickly as possible. As this is an iced coffee, you want the coffee to be as cold as possible before adding it to the coconut milk.

While you can allow the shot to cool down at room temperature. If you pour it over ice, this will speed up the process. You can even give the coffee a little shake to allow it to become as cold as possible.

Alternatively, you can place the coffee into the refrigerator for an hour or two before using it, if you prefer.

If you are going to be using granulated sugar or sweetener to sweeten your coffee, you will need to add it to the warm espresso shot and mix it in before cooling. If you are using syrups, this can be added later.

Step Three – Adding The Coffee

Next prepare a cup of coconut milk with a few ice cubes to the cup to keep it nice and cool. If you like your drink a little frothy then use a simple whisk to froth the milk and then add to ice cubes.

Take your chilled espresso shot and pour it on top of the coconut milk, and stir until they are all mixed together.

Alternatively, you can choose to add coconut milk to the espresso shot. It does not impact the taste of the coffee, whichever way you choose.

If you like you can add syrup or sugar to taste.
