These Homemade Iced Lattes are rich and delicious! Not to mention will save you a ton of money this summer, once you learn to make them in batches that will last you through the week.
Anyone want an iced latte? Well I’m not going to the coffee shop for you. Because I won’t even for myself anymore. But I can make us one in a fraction of the time at home.
Plus at this rate, I won’t even be able to make it to the coffee shop. Because my car won’t start, I forgot to fill up the tank on the way home last night. Darn!
I hate when that happens. And no way no way hosay, I’m not about to embarrass myself and ride a horse through the drive-thru to get one either. Do I look like like these guys to you? I think not.
I’m gonna stay right here where it’s safe. And you will too, once you learn to make your own iced lattes at home. Now if you’re anything like me, you’re a huge coffee addict!
It’s practically a past time to sip hot cups of coffee in the mornings for most people these days. Which really is like a warm hug on those chilly winter/fall/spring mornings up here in the great white north.
However even when summer comes around, most of us are still drinking our coffees hot around here.
And during the summer we are also drinking them cold, addicts I tell ya!
And it’s getting ridiculous cause most of us are spending absurd amounts of money doing this, since our local shops are now charging around $4 dollars a cup.
So what if I told you that you don’t have to do that anymore? No seriously it should be a crime, because if you start making them at home you can use that hard earned money elsewhere. This is my favorite way to make large batches of iced lattes, which last me throughout the week.
HOW TO MAKE ICED LATTE WITH INSTANT COFFEE?
If you’re in a hurry or just need a iced latte NOW, then you can follow this recipe for an “instant latte”. I will make one cup at a time and uses instant coffee mix. This recipe here will make 12 cups of coffee which = 3 liters. So follow along with me here if you want a larger batch to last throughout the week. Trust me your going to save a lot of money this way, I promise.
ICED LATTE WITH ALMOND MILK
I like to use almond milk because it’s low in fat vs regular milk, then I feel less guilty using my regular “double double” sweetener. Obviously you can use whatever sweetener suits you best, if your on a calorie restricted diet I would recommend agave nectar, just make sure you dissolve it in the coffee brew while it’s hot.
Also, please keep in mind what type of container your allowing the coffee to cool down in. If you are using a glass container to store your brew like I do.
Then please make sure you allow the coffee to cool down first in an ice bath or on the counter prior to placing it in any glass container otherwise it may break.
Once your coffee has cooled enough, place it in your jar/container and leave it in the fridge to chill for 2 hours or overnight. Then when you’re in the mood for a refreshing iced latte, simply pour over a glass of ice, and then add your favorite milk + sweetener!
I hope you start to enjoy making your own batches at home, trust me your friends/family are gonna love you for it. Anyone want an iced latte?
Note: You can pour your cooled coffee into ice cubes and use that instead of regular ice cubes. This creates a stronger latte.
