Lately, I've been making my iced lattes at home very frequently and I often LOVE experimenting with new flavors and ingredients combos for a nice switch up.
As I've mentioned before, for the new year, one of my goals has been to make more of my coffee-based drinks at home as opposed to a retailer like Starbucks. To be honest, I’ve gotten frustrated with ordering a venti cup of coffee and always having to adjust it myself at home because it wasn’t made perfect. So, why not just make the entire thing yourself—right? Right.
So, of course----being able to make my lattes perfectly and based on the right amount of ingredients/flavor, has been such a game-changer for me in the mornings!
When it comes to this Peanut Butter Caramel Iced Latte, I promise you that it'll be such a burst of amazing flavors and will definitely UP your latte game!
You’re going to love this creamy oat milk drink (which of course---you can use your fave plant-based milk). It’s made with cold brew for an extra caffeine kick, peanut butter which adds a beautiful nuttiness, and has a sweet homemade caramel sauce you can use to flavor your morning brew all week long without any need for an additional sweetener.
The two components in this simple homemade latte are the homemade caramel sauce and the coffee. Here’s what you need to make the sauce:
To make your lattes, you’ll use:
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. Yes—you can add leftover coffee in other ways (i.e. baking, making a mocktail, etc.), why not just freeze them and re-create a new latte each day? Haha.
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, I've added some amazing options on my Amazon list 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!
If you want to drink this chilled peanut butter caramel latte every morning, it’s helpful to have the caramel sauce prepped and ready to go. Once you make and cool the sauce fully, you can store it in an airtight container or glass jar in the fridge for up to two weeks.
When you’re ready to serve, stir the homemade caramel sauce into your peanut butter-oat milk mixture, sweetener, pinch of cinnamon, coffee, and add your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
Drizzle creamy caramel over oat milk, almond or coconut ice cream. Add a dollop to vegan brownies (yum!). You can even add homemade caramel sauce to your favorite desserts like vegan cheesecake, cake, cupcakes, etc. Also, add a bit of sweetness to your chia pudding, overnight oats, or french toast for a morning kick!
You can use pretty much any kind of plant-based milk for this peanut butter caramel latte. I recommend making your own; it’s easier than you think!
