Switch up your summer morning coffee for a bright and fruity vanilla raspberry iced latte!
I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the hunt for new ways to use up fruit that’s on its last legs in the fridge. I cannot stand to waste money on food that goes bad before we have the chance to eat it!
I’ve got a few recipes in my back pocket that I always turn to use up those almost dead berries, like this blueberry peach cobbler and my fave any-fruit crisp. For dying apples, I always turn to the forever iconic apple slab pie.
However, this summer, I’ve gone in a different direction without – gasp! – turning on the oven! This raspberry syrup recipe is truly one of the best syrups I’ve made in so so long! It’s perfect for lemonade, iced tea, and of course – my lifeline – coffee!
My friends, raspberries are a total sleeper ingredient to elevate a cup of coffee, giving it a delicate fruity undertone that you didn’t know your life needed.
And because I’m me – as in, the latte lover that I am – I couldn’t resist using my homemade raspberry syrup in an iced latte. I gave this flavor a shot (see what I did there?) last summer while pulling through the drive-thru and I immediately knew I could make it better and cheaper at home.
So I did!
Iced Raspberry Latte Ingredients
You’re only going to need 3 ingredients for this iced espresso drink! Here’s what you need:
- Espresso – either cold or hot
- Milk – your choice!
- Raspberry syrup
How to Make This Iced Latte
The steps are ever so simple here! This is what I do to make my vanilla raspberry iced lattes:
STEP 1: Get the espresso ready. This can be either cold or freshly brewed. You’ll need 2 to 3 ounces.
STEP 2: Pour the espresso and raspberry syrup over a 12- to 16-ounce glass filled with ice. Stir well to combine.
STEP 3: Add the milk up to the top of the glass and pop a straw into the glass.
STEP 4: Sit back, sip, and relax!
And there you have it! My vanilla raspberry iced latte recipe! It’s been my absolute fave, especially since I’ve been keeping a bottle of raspberry syrup in the fridge all summer long. I hope you enjoy this one!
