I can’t imagine my day without a Starbucks’ iced vanilla latte. It’s my go-to drink that keeps me going throughout the year. Therefore, I requested Jasbir to replicate the Starbucks Iced Vanilla Latte recipe.

The result has been so amazing that my regular runs at Starbucks have stopped. So, if you’re a fan of Starbucks, like me, I highly recommend you try out this recipe.

The special thing about this recipe is its robust and full-bodied flavor, which is achieved through the use of premium vanilla syrup and rich espresso. Starbucks uses its own branded vanilla syrup in its drinks made by Fontana. Therefore, we’ve also used the same while making this recipe. 

Moreover, we’ve also used Espresso roast in this recipe just like Starbucks. It provides a nutty and earthy coffee experience, which we could taste and appreciate in this recipe.

So let me tell you the exact recipe, so you could experience the deliciousness of a Starbucks Iced Vanilla Latte at home.

Equipments Required

  • 1 16-oz Tumbler (450 ml) – You will need a tumbler or glass to prepare the coffee. 
  • Espresso Maker – Starbucks makes use of its signature espresso to make their iced latte, which is prepared in an espresso machine. Therefore, you will also need its help to make the coffee liquor.
  • Coffee Grinder – A coffee grinder would also be required to grind the coffee beans. Several espresso maker’s come with a built-in coffee grinder.
