This Caramel Coffee Ice Cubes Latte is the epitome of never having boring lattes that are quick and tasty to kick start your day again! Make these little ice cubes to go with your favorite coffee drink (whether hot or cold) without watering it down. Made with cold brew, vegan caramel sauce, and naturally sweetened, these ice cubes are the perfect dairy-free + vegan option.
I recently came across the newest wave of turning your coffee into ice cubes and I must say that I'm hooked! These Caramel Coffee Ice Cubes are super easy to make and with this large batch of 28 ice cubes, they make for a great meal prep + make ahead option for the week.
When thinking about how much a latte has been a major part of my mornings, I'm definitely sold on doing these little ice cubs more often and the great part------you can totally change the flavors to keep things interesting.
Since the start of 2022, I've been super adamant on reducing my takeout spending, especially when it comes to a cup of coffee, therefore, I've been making my own lattes at home, which has been rather fun!
If you're into homemade lattes like I am, then I suggest making this Sugar Cookie Latte (Starbucks Copycat) for starters. SO good! I'll definitely be sharing more latte recipes further below.
Making coffee throughout the week can sometimes mean that you won't always use up your coffee, especially when making coffee from ground coffee beans.

As I've mentioned, making these coffee ice cubes are for sure the easiest and fastest way to keep your latte/coffee runs smooth during the week. Simply make a large batch of these, add them to a glass in the mornings, pour your milk, and add an additional sweetener (if you please), and wallah. DONE!

Honestly, I'm a big believer in using whichever type of ice cube tray molds you'd prefer. I chose to use these "crescent moon" shaped molds (which are standard ice trays), however, I also love using square cubes and any fun shapes for a more festive feel.
Personally, Amazon has some amazing options and you can also purchase ice cube molds as large retailers such as Target, Walmart, etc. Of course, depending on the size and shape, you'll get a different amount of ice cubes per batch, so keep that in mind!
