This Iced Latte is Plant-Based

This Iced Latte is delicious. I swapped out dairy milk and you wouldn’t know. The transition away from dairy milk with plant-based milk has not been a difficult transition over here. I never liked dairy milk, really.

If you like to make your own alternative plant-based milk, we offer an in-depth tutorial for homemade almond milk that’s easy and fun to make, especially with the kids. If you decide to make it for yourself, please share a snapshot with us on Instagram.

Have you ever thought to make iced coffee with plant-milk? It’s easy, and it hits the spot.

It never dawned on me that you might not know about this deep summer iced latte treat. I shared it with a friend who was visiting with us and she was entertained by my little show and really enjoyed the taste!

For me, August is the time of the year that I want to drink only cold drinks, and mostly cold meals, unless we’re outside on the grill.

This delicious drink will make you wish you thought of it sooner. No dairy. No-fuss. In two minutes flat you get a terrific morning or afternoon pick-me-up with very little guilt.

How to make Iced Latte

  • Make espresso shot and melt honey into the hot coffee.

  • Top off with more ice.

This Iced Latte recipe deserves your thumbprint.
