Iced Soy Latte

June 13th  •  Posted in Recipe

When you decide to cut dairy out of your diet in wintertime you don’t realize how you’ll miss that good old iced latte in the warmer months. Even though I was the biggest fan of the classic iced latte I used to drink, I’m just blessing soy milk and am so grateful it does exist.

Preparing iced latte is so easy and quick, and you just need to remember to have some ice in your freezer, but for the rest it’s just the easiest thing to do but I love how refreshing but still super delicious iced latte is especially when the weather is so hot and I don’t really want to drink anything warm. What I do is simply throw six ice cubes in a glass or cup, then fill half of it with freshly prepared coffee and half with soy milk then add some sugar, and it’s done. I really dislike how soy milk taste on its own – not to mention how I hate vanilla soy milk – but with coffee it’s so good and you can’t actually taste the soy flavor which I’m not always a fan of.

Should I try iced soy chai latte? Yes, I should. And maybe in wintertime I will love some classic and warm soy chai latte as well!

How do you like your coffee in summertime? Are you a soy milk fan?

    • Doesn’t Starbucks have cold soy drinks in summertime? I thought you could ask for any drink they have on their menu with soy milk instead of regular milk 🙂 x

    This sounds fabulous, I can’t have dairy and find it so hard to drink coffee out now. I am so going to try this when I’m home.

    • Yes, try this! I’m not a fan of coffee by its own but I love my iced latte and this is such a great solution! x

    Looks yummy! 🙂 Thanks for the recipe, will be trying this out this afternoon (it’s 34 degrees in the South of France!) x

    • I know, I think we have the same weather here in Milan, it’s just so hot these last few days! x

  • I use soy milk, too, but I’m also not a fan of the taste. I’ll definitely have to try this sometime–tomorrow, even. x

    • Yes try it, I hate how soy milk taste by its own but I love my iced soy latte so much! x

  • This is amazing! xx

  • I’ve been trying to cut down on dairy lately, for the sake of my stomach and my skin, but my favourite substitute is almond milk. Haven’t tried making an iced latte of it though, but now I’m tempted! Love your blog, by the way. It’s lovely 🙂

    • I just find finding almond milk a bit harder than soy milk here, so I never tried it! Will do if I can find it! x

    I’m your 1000th follower!! Congrats!!!

  • I’ve always used soy milk in all my coffee drinks. I always get a soy green tea latte at Starbucks, it is amazing!!!
    I don’t know if it’s just me, when i get soy milk in my hot drink, it leaves a chalky feeling in my mouth. This doesn’t happen for cold beverages though. Strange. Do you feel that too?

    I love your blog btw 🙂

  • I’m trying to cut out dairy to at least some degree (I’m an addict…) but I moved to Korea two years ago and have yet to find a soymilk that suits coffee. Soymilk here is ~serious business~, very grainy and dense. Your recipes really make me want to go out hunting for alternatives again!
