This dairy-free iced latte is a fast and easy coffee drink for hot summer days.
It's 90 degrees today. And it's supposed to stay hot and humid for the rest of the week. This iced latte has become my go-to drink for these hot summer days. If you're following me on Instagram, you saw the first time I made this iced espresso and milk. I've been having it just about every morning since then.
When the weather is cooler, I make cappuccino in the mornings. The regular coffee maker collects dust, but the espresso machine gets used every day. While I always have cold brew iced tea in the fridge, I've never really gotten into making cold brew coffee. It's so easy to make a shot of espresso in the morning, and just pour it over a glass full of ice and (dairy-free) milk.
This is one of those recipes you'll want to play around with. I prefer mine with homemade cashew milk, but you can always use almond milk or coconut milk. And if you like your coffee sweetened, try a little raw honey or maple syrup. Either way, you'll have a cold, creamy coffee drink to help you beat the heat.
Here are a few more espresso drinks to try:
- 6-8 large ice cubes
- 1/2 - 1 cup cashew milk to taste
- 2 shots of espresso
Make espresso shots and set aside to cool for a few minutes.
Fill large heat-proof glass with ice. Pour in milk, then espresso. Stir, and sweeten if desired.
